The Indians fought to keep their beautiful land and tribes and were sadly disappointed by the British. While the British fought to become the supreme European power of Europe and to conquer America. During this movie I was saddened to see how the Indians were betrayed because they really trusted that the British were going to help them keep their land and security if they help them fight a fight that killed many of their families and consequently what they once called Home. The British were were ambitious, manipulative people and did not stop fighting until the end for territorial and power. The British had a modern culture with higher technology , trade goods, clothing, and more distinguished culture than the Indians.
When they won the French and Indian War, England had to make a few reforms. King George III declared the Proclamation of 1763, which forbid American colonists from settling west of the Appalachian Mountains in an effort the stabilize relations with the Native Americans. However this angered many colonists who had land grants there and in turn, the Proclamation Line was ignored. This was the start of a series of disagreements between the two lands, as the American citizens began to gain a stronger taste for independence. Enlightenment writers such as John Locke, who patented the idea that it
In “The Scratch of a Pen: 1763 and the Transformation of North America,” written by Colin G. Colloway indicates that the Treaty of Paris of 1763 was the cause of American Revolutionary War. In this document, American territory changed hands in any treaty ever before. Settlers and Frontiers as long with Indians and Europeans all endured to adapt to new situations, boundaries, government and restrictions. It focuses on the sociological involvement of the war, and how it affected the different populations, both directly and indirectly. Also the document presents the triumphs and tragedies of the epic struggle on a continent placing them in a larger context in France and Great Britain global conflict.
It deprived Germany of wealth-earning areas, such as the coalfields in Silesia. As well as this the treaty also imposed harsh reparations on Germany (£6,600 billion). Germany asked for reductions however the victors, especially France were not forgiving and needed money to pay debts to the US. With no gold reserves and a failing income Germany could no longer afford to pay and declared itself bankrupt. Why was the Ruhr occupied and what were the consequences?
This caused friction between the Indians and the English. Native Americans started slavery in America. They captured people of other tribes and enslaved them. They were willing to share their land with the English but the English wanted it for themselves which drove the Indians away and created much less land for them. They did trade with both the English and French.
16 September 2012 Relationships between American Indians and European Colonists During the race for land in the 1600s, Europeans quickly moved onto American property, but usually, American Indians occupied that land. At first Europeans would sometimes become allies with the Indians as an aid to survive, but when the Europeans gained enough support and became more land-hungry, they would kick the Indians out of the property. As Europeans moved into the American colonies, actions by both the American Indians and European colonists, overall, negatively affected their relationship. This is clear in examining the relationships between the Native Americans and Europeans in New England and the Chesapeake area. In 1620, the first permanent English settlement came to New England in Massachusetts near Plymouth Rock.
This was because the war had been fought on German soil, causing them to lose money in agriculture; also the trade routes had shifted. In 1648, they found peace, although the Holy Roman Empire was still marred. Another cause that attributed to the fall of the Holy Roman Empire was the religious reformations and religious wars. In the 16th century, calls for reformation began because criticism of the church was so widespread. In 1517 when Martin Luther posted the “Ninety-Five-Theses,” he started a chain reaction.
During the beginning of colonial settlement, Britain did not enforce strict laws upon the colonies because it wanted them to prosper. Once war broke out between the French and the British in the French and Indian war, Britain began to enforce harsher laws and greater taxes on the colonies to draw revenue for the war. This in turn, angered the colonists and they began to think twice about having another country rule them. The colonists at the time also violated the same ideals of equality of rights and rule of law when they discriminated against the African Americans, Native Americans, and the poorer white settlers by forcing people into slavery with terrible conditions and taking land just because the colonist needed it. When the French and Indian War broke out between the British and the French, Britain hoped to use the colonies as an extra source of wealth to fight the war.
As stated previously, the Forced Loan existed to fund England’s wars considering that Parliament was reluctant to grant Charles further subsidies. Foreign policy had been dreadful for England since Charles had become King due to large scale operations such as the Cadiz Expedition failing miserably. As such, it was becoming increasingly more expensive to fund. Due to this Charles demanded more
Therefore he would not listen to other wise diplomats, such as Talleyrand. His ego and ambition got in the way of common sense and this helped to lead to his downfall and he tried the impossible, like invading Russia. Napoleon's method of enforcing his rule and ideas on all the countries he defeated also helped turn countries against him. This is because they did not always like the French way of living and this caused the people to feel bitter towards Napoleon. There are also a couple of larger factors that led to Napoleon's downfall.
