Rejecting the rule of Britain the colonists overthrew their monarchy to gain independence and founded the United States of America as a democracy. Events such as the Intolerable Acts and the Stamp Act, along with taxation without representation, caused the colonists to break from British control. The relationship between Britain and the thirteen colonies consisted of an ongoing pattern between conflict and support. After The Seven Years war Britain was left with French’s land in the Americas and a large amount of debt. The war produced a very contradicting effect.
The influence of the enlightenment on the American Revolution In 1607, Great Britain established their first colony on today’s Virginia. Great Britain continuously increased number of North America colonies; in 1754, number of colonies was as much as 13. To increase number of colonies, Great Britain fought numerous wars, won most of the wars and became one of the most powerful nations in the world at that time. How dare only 13 colonies could stand up to unfair treatment and various kinds of taxes payment? However even a worm will turn, in 1755 on the increasing exploitation of Great Britain, citizen of 13 colonies eventually opposed against Great Britain and caused American independent war, also called American Revolution.
After WWII, the Japanese economy was struggling to get back to being as powerful as they were before the war had begun. Sent by the Economic and Scientific Section of the War Department for the United States around the late 1940’s, an intelligent man from Wyoming became the person many leaders of the Japanese industries started to turn to. That brilliant statistician, W. Edwards Deming, introduced their manufactures to a new method of producing products of high quality economically. With this new knowledge, the Japanese began to turn their economy around. Although helping Japan get back on its feet was one of his greatest accomplishments, Deming accomplished more goals of his throughout his life.
The Roaring Twenties During the 1920s, Americans were introduced to many new products including ready-made exact size clothing, electric phonographs, electric vacuum cleaners, and radios (The Consumer Economy and Mass Entertainment). As soldiers returned from WWI, they brought new ideas, began to challenge society’s traditions and pushed for women’s independence. The soldiers had seen a new and different world in Europe and wanted to bring those traditions to America (Jarmul). The large sacrifices of the wartime era were no longer a part of everyday life (“The Decade That Roared”). The 1920s were a time of great change in America, especially with the introduction of new products like the automobile and new appliances, along with medical breakthroughs such as the discovery of insulin.
Stresemann played a key role in helping Weimar out of hyperinflation caused by the increase in printing money after the Ruhr invasion. By replacing the currency from r to r meant that the hyperinflation settled. Also Stresemann, as a foreign affairs minister, made the Dawes plan happen. Basically it entailed a schedule for payments from Weimar, reorganization of the German Reichsbank and most importantly America investing in the German economy. After this Weimar was at least superficially back on track.
Furthermore, Truman also uses a didactic/serious tone to educate and persuade the audience about the bombing and the bomb itself. For example, Truman states, “The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. With this bomb we have added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces.
The seeds of the revolution were sown in the French and Indian War, a conflict which turned the geopolitical landscape of North America on its head. The two great powers of France and Britain duked it out for world dominance for nine years, and by the end of the conflict France had been relegated to its sugar fields in the Caribbean. Where there had once been a formidable enemy which threatened the very existence of the colonies before, there was now simply a void, land free for the taking. However the British did
During the 19th century America finally outgrew its meager beginnings, and grew into its new role as a world power. The size of America increased almost three-fold with the help of land acquisitions such as The Louisiana Purchase, the Mexican Cession, and the addition of the Alaskan, Floridian, Oregonian, and Texan territories and states, catalyzed by the War of 1812. The War was often referred to as “America’s second war for independence” because the interference of Britain was still found within America, years after they declared official independence. The War of 1812 was not caused by any one factor, but instead a multitude of factors that jointly caused the war to begin. Britain was interfering with American maritime, trade, Indian affairs, and expansion.
The Articles of Confederation go through a long and difficult process. After the Independence War in 1776, the 13 states adopted the Articles of Confederation; it could not solve the problems in early time of America completely.It played an important role in the history of America, because these Articles influenced the Constitutional Convention and promoted the development of history of the United States. In history, Columbus discovered America land. People established Jamestown which was the first British colony. At early time, colonists lived a hard life.
