Dominik Severino HI 410 Dr. Moore 2/16/12 The Barbary Wars The Barbary Wars were one of many struggles for the growing nation of America during its long lasting bout for Independence. The author, Frank Lambert, takes in depths look into generalities formed through specific events throughout this time period. Lambert argues the belief that these wars were fought because of economic and mercantile reasons rather than the notion that they were religious wars. “The Barbary Wars were primarily about trade, not theology, and rather than being holy wars, they were an extension of America’s War for Independence” (Lambert 22). This brings into account why the book is subtitled “American Independence in the Atlantic World”.

Henry had a very aggressive policy on France throughout his rein until he eventually decided on trying to become the peacemaker of Europe. Henry wanted to regain the lost territory in northern France so he could be seen as a Great War lord with visions of honour and glory but also to challenge Henry V’s title of the last great English warrior. The first sign of this aim being put into place is the first French war from 1512-1514. However the first expedition on June 1512 was a disastrous failure as Ferdinand of Aragon didn’t hold up his end of the deal for an allied invasion. This shows Henrys naivety in foreign policy and the other European powers were using him to benefit themselves whilst sending him to his downfall.
French and Indian War DBQ The French and Indian War began in 1754 and ended in 1763. The name “French and Indian War,” was one later adopted by the Americans and the British. Relations between Britain and its American colonies were substantially altered politically, ideologically, and economically in many ways. The relationship was altered politically due to Britain’s control of the entire eastern coastline, economically on how British policies after 1763 were designed to raise revenue to pay for the cost of the empire, and ideologically in the loyalty of the American colonists. From a political standpoint, the Americans and the British did not see eye-to-eye.
Explain how the colonies shifted from the notion of being included in the British Empire to the idea that being in it was a threat to their freedom. In the middle part of the 1760s, the British government was still trying to get over the effects of the Seven Years War. Although the war had resulted in a victory for the English, dominating the eastern half of North America, it had cost a lot of money, much of it spent on military campaigns in North America. It had been determined that conflicts between the colonists and the Indians (assisted by the remaining French settlers in the region), required the continuous guarding by British troops in North America.

For example, during King William's (1689–97), Queen Anne's (1702–13), and King George's (1744–48) Wars, the French supported Algonquian raids against the English colonies, while New England's domesticated Indians and certain Iroquoian allies aided the English. In the French and Indian War, the French and their mostly Algonquian allies initially made impressive strides toward controlling the Ohio Valley, beginning with Braddock's Defeat (1755), only to be overcome by the more numerous English and their Iroquoian supporters. Indians fought as European allies in these wars to advance their own perceived interests in acquiring weapons and other trade goods and captives for adoption, status, or revenge. Until the end of the French and Indian War, Indians succeeded in using these imperial contests to preserve their freedom of
