Those who planned it were the affluent people among the colonists. They wanted a democracy and believed in working hard to make money without the oversight of a greedy government stealing from their hard earned toil. Conversely, the French revolution emphasized human rights. During the French Revolution, the bourgeoisie had almost the same circumstances as the middle-class colonists in America. They worked very hard to amass wealth.
Despite all of it, his taxation policy was generally successful. In 1784, William Pitt the younger introduced Commutation Act and Hovering Act. Both of them were aimed on lowering smuggling trade. Smuggling had beam a profitable business especially in more remote areas. It cost the counter thousands of pounds in lost revenues.
(30) During the personal rule of Charles I he was able to finance his government effectively to a certain extent. Schemes such as tonnage and poundage and isolation foreign policies helped bring in huge amounts of revenue and cut costs, but were only effective during the earlier parts of personal rule. As his rule went on opposition towards his policies slowly but surely grew. The public reaction following the John Hamden case and the parliamentary grievances starkly highlight this. Thus Charles was only able to effectively finance his government during the initial years of his personal rule, however as resentment grew towards his governance it had a direct impact on his ability to run and finance his regime.
It could be argued that salutary neglect weakened the relationship, however the colonist's may have enjoyed this freedom to do what they wanted and make there own decisions. The colonies and the mother country had little to do with eachother, which caused a peaceful relationship between the two. Britain and the American colonies fought on the same side, as seen in the Seven Years War. When in 1756 Britain finally declared war on France, the colonists and the British joined forces against their Catholic French enemies. The fact that 25,000 American colonists agreed to risk their lives for their mother country clearly shows agreement in action, signalling a harmonious relationship.
Before the Revolution started, the Americans formed a sense of unity and identity more than ever before. It shows in the Pennsylvania Gazette from 1754 that New England was forming together to gain sovereignty, liberty, and independence from Britain. There were many acts thrown by the British to the Americans. An example would be the Stamp Act; it was the tax on stamps and special seals. The outcome of these acts was boycotts from the colonist’s response, or letters sent to Britain demanding a stop on these unfair taxes.
They created a world where a few families owned most of the wealth. To strengthen ties & harness control of everything,..they strategically married into other wealthy powerful, families. They created laws to protect their wealth & power & appointed people to enforce the laws that would ensure they maintained their grasp on the control of everything & everyone. 3. Describe the disproportionate distribution of wealth in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York.
Winthrop said they must “delight in each other, make others’ conditions our own…” (Document A). By the 1700s the New England settlers had created a colony that was very dependent on each other and God. The Chesapeake colonies had very different settlers, however. On a manifest with seventy five names, sixty four of them were men who came to the New World to make a fortune and get out of debt (Document C). While fighting the Dutch Governor Berkeley identified one third of his fighting men as single and many of which were in debt (Document G).
Tobacco production not only helped the colony grow prosperous, it also created new opportunities for over 90,000 immigrants who moved to the colony as indentured servants. Similarly, the New England economy was based on trade in the fishing and timber industries because of easy access to ports and wooded areas. Like Chesapeake families, New England colonists farmed, however, New Englanders practiced subsistence farming, small family farms which produced only enough food for a single family’s use. Another similarity between the two colonies is how both colonies dealt with the Indians. In the Virginia colony, Powhatan’s brother, Opechancanough, led a surprise attack on Virginia colonists and murdered over 300 of the 1,200 men in the colony.

They had traveled from their home country to make a new life in this land, but they were by culture and tradition rooted to the country of their birth, or of their family’s origin. They were generally loyal to their sovereign and grateful for the benefits that being a citizen of the most powerful nation in the world brought them. Many had strong family ties in England and wished to remain on good terms with their government. While they recognized problems with the system as it existed, loyalists believed that they could be overcome with sufficient effort and that effort was well worth engaging (Jasanoff, 25). In the very early stages of the revolutionary war, Americans were still debating how to best deal with the problems in the colonies relationship with England.
