DBQ: Identity and Unity of the Colonists The American colonist had an exceptionally developed interpretation of their identity and alliance as a whole by the close of the revolution; nevertheless it still took a longer duration of time to acquire the colonial unification as a whole than rather a distinguished identity. The colonies distributed envy towards each other causing a slow procession in unity. The tyranny brought upon the colonist by King Philip gave the enlightened ideas that commenced into the fight for their freedom from Great Britain. The French and Indian War was one of the first steps in stimulating unity. The Americans fought under British’s flag giving them victory towards the France.
America is a very strong and determined country, which help them win the Revolutionary War. Washington’s strategy of avoiding large-scale with the royal army made it impossible for the British to deliver a knock-out blow. Only once during the Revolution did an American army surrender to British forces. Also, the guerrilla tactics that Americans had learned during Indian wars proved very effective in fighting the British army. Another reason that helped the U.S. win the Revolutionary War was the intervention of France, Spain, and the Netherlands in the conflict made a crucial difference.
Yes, The Reform act of 1832 does indeed deserve the title 'Great'. The significance of the act during 1832 was immense, for the first time in decades people were shown an example of reform that could foreshadow future reforms and could change the structure of the country forever. The changes the acts brought, in modern day, may not seem too radical yet they were the catalyst for future reforms that would benefit the people that had previously suffered in Britain. The main significance is mainly long term, yet with the introduction of reforms the Whig government began to gain confidence and authority with the reforms they were passing. The reduction by 56 of Rotten and Pocket boroughs meant that significant amounts of Tory voters were lost therefore benefitting the Whigs all the more and increasing Whig popularity, this supplied Whig’s with the confidence to make more reforms, The reforms were subtle yet they carried an air of optimism and granted the working class people the chance to anticipate further future reforms.

The American Revolution was inevitable. The social, political, and economic oppression of the colonists made Americans maintain the spirit of revolution.

The paper describes the events of the American Revolution that support the statement that the revolution was inevitable.

An analysis of Britain’s imperial policies during the time period from 1763 to 1776 reveals that British policies regarding issues like taxation and political representation were directly responsible for intensifying colonial resistance to British rule and for strengthening the colonials’ commitment to republican values. Great Britain’s 1763 victory over France in the Seven Years War made it the dominate power in North America, but the challenges associated with managing such a vast Empire required British policymakers to make tough decisions in the years following the war. The Proclamation of 1763 created an incredible amount of anger not only in the colonies, but also with the Native Americans. Many of the actions that resulted from the Proclamation were simply due to the lack of cooperation between the British, colonists and Native Americans. Britain had taken what was rightfully won by the colonies, and this fueled the colonists desire for the American Revolution.
The radical Chilpancingo manifesto had disturbed many conservative creoles, including Iturbide, and they went over to the Spanish side. Ever the skillful tactician, Iturbide routed Morelos's forces with a well-executed cavalry charge and broke the siege of Valladolid. The shattered morelista forces withdrew into the wilderness but Morelos was captured by a Spanish patrol in 1815. Taken to Mexico City, he was defrocked by the Church and executed in December of that year. Then -- in one of these remarkable twists that truly makes history stranger than fiction -- Spain, the great oppressor, suddenly turned liberal!
Zimmerman promised to help Mexico regain lost territory that the United States took away (all of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico). Unfortunately for Zimmerman, the British intercepted the message and decoded it. Then the British eagerly delivered it to President Wilson. To persuade Congress to give him the power to wage an undeclared naval war and protect American merchant ships against German submarines, Wilson published the Zimmerman note. A wave of anger swept through the United States and the Armed Ship bill was passed.
One of the many colonies of the British during this time, America, a budding colony at the time, was on the verge of revolution. After a devastating war with the French, Britain started to tax all of its colonies on items of daily use, impose its military might on small, helpless colonists, and deprive the colonists of basic rights British citizens had. Because of Britain’s powerful navy and army, Britain persecuted the weak American colonists, treating them as if they were lower than the loyal subjects they were. Although Frankenstein’s creation had the strength much greater than a normal human, when the whole village began to drive him away, he had no choice but to run. He had not acted threateningly or made any dangerous movements; all he did was walk through the village, but the village “attacked [him], until, grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons” (94).
