Whereas the French wanted a revolution to be freed from the monarchs that were implementing things in France. Due to the common reasons why the French and Americans were persisting into having a revolution made it seem like these revolutions were very similar. Unfortunately, there is some indifference towards both of the revolutions.
The political impact of France was the main factor that spread ideas. Soldiers who fought in America bought some of the ideas back across to France. Even though victory restored some prestige to the monarchy, the financial impact of the war was to make this restoration of prestige short lived. The American war was an important cause because it affected France in a lot of ways. France got affected economically which made the people of France lose hope on monarch.
Eleven people were killed and the radicals were given a huge propaganda boost by referring to the event as ‘Peterloo’, in a grim analogy with the Duke of Wellington's famous victory over Napoleon at Waterloo four years earlier. This shows that the government did think Britain was on the verge of a revolution if they had to have authorities to disperse the crowd by force. This also shows the unrest Britain had as a whole, to the way Britain was governed. In response to the Duke of Wellington’s return to government, reform leaders made plans to bring the country to a halt by having their supporters withdraw funds from the banks, using the slogan: ‘To stop the Duke, go for Gold’. The crisis was averted.
Overthrow, by Stephen Kinzer steps in to a view of the United stated that not many people would care to bring to light. He implies that since the 19th century as the American frontier diminished the consistent involvement of the United States in the disposition of foreign regimes has spanned the test of time, and showed the great lengths that we are willing to go to push our interests and policies. As history shows, the American business is what drives our policies, and furthering the grown of business is the concrete interest. Delving further in to” Overthrow”, Kinzer further demonstrates numerous examples that further show the American “Interest” in taking over foreign regimes, as well imposing democratic influences or the spread of national security. While these ideals have coincided with numerous overthrows, however they never really had the needed effect until business interests came in to play.
This means that the prices for stock were too high, far higher than they were really worth, then they fell drastically. People who had borrowed money to buy high-priced stocks (intending to sell the stocks at a profit and repay lenders), went bankrupt. That’s further expounding on what I said about buying on margin. Black Tuesday also marks the beginning of the great depression (Regan3). Living conditions during this time were unsanitary and horrible.
Do you agree with the suggestion that Henry VIII and Wolsey conducted an effective Foreign Policy between the years 1515-1525? Henry VIII’s foreign policy orchestrated by Wolsey in the years 1515-25 was considered to be both a success and a failure. This essay will counter argue both sides of the argument as to whether it was a success or a failure. My personal opinion was that the foreign policy was a failure due to most of the aims not being met. The aims set to be achieved by Henry was to; Capture France, become a ‘Warrior king’ and to be known as one of the leading country’s in the world.
Great Britain, although officially neutral, had an elite opinion favouring the Confederacy and a public opinion favouring the United States. Concerned largely with Free Trade, diplomacy and the evasion of all-out war against America, Great Britain influenced and contributed to the outcome of the Civil War by utilising its powerful position to cleverly invest themselves in industrial aspects of the war, which proved beneficial to its relations with America as a whole. The reasons for the Civil War were copious and complex, but the motivation and direct cause of the secession revolved around the election of President Abraham Lincoln. With his inauguration came his policy to abolish slavery, which he
This view is largely accredited because Pitt came into office in a difficult time but events around him seemed to benefit him rather well. Britain was entering the industrial revolution at the time, industry rose up and trade would boom due to expansion of the industries at home and abroad, the advancements of technology meant that Britain was going through a natural change that arguably Pitt was able to captain through leading to better fortunes. The natural opposition from the Whig party against the king led by Charles Fox meant that Pitt naturally had the Kings support against any opposition which could be thrown at him, the king would back him up. The American Revolution and his lack of connection to it meant that he was seen as a new politician not one of the previously failed governments who’s lack of control and rule in a situation. And lastly the regency crisis of 1788 meant that Pitt could use this to gain favour with the king and gather support from his own party and draw it away from the opposition.
Known for his enthusiasm towards American politics, his Spanish War hero persona, and a dedicated reform driven governor, Roosevelt found himself taking office as vice-president of the United States on March 4, 1901 and following McKinley’s assassination President on September 14, 1901. Shortly after returning to politics, opportunity had presented itself to further satisfy America’s need for manifest destiny. The French had embarked on the idea of creating a canal that would connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, creating a water way to better improve transportation and drastically cut down cost. This enormous engineering feat had not only claimed countless French lives, but had proved to be too expensive to continue. Roosevelt had realized this great potential and purchased the equipment and rights from the French to pursue this project.
The British made many poor decisions aided in the success of the American army. It could be said that America did not so much win the war, but instead, allowed Britain to lose. Popular support for the Revolution and simple American patriotism were possibly the most influential factors in the American victory and British defeat. Support cut across region, religion, and social rank. Common farmers, artisans, shopkeepers, and petty merchants were major actors during the Revolution.
