The start of the war was due to American extension into the Creek territory. In response, Shawnee carried a message of aggressive nativism that threaten the American expansion plans. Shawnee leader Tecumseh visit had resulted into a spiritual rebirth it “urged a spiritual cleaning and a material purging that recognized the agent’s activities as only the latest of many problems” (11). Tecumseh and his brother Tuckabatchee joined the Shawnee raids and killed several white men which resulted in retaliation and the start of Creek War. The authors believed that the war would have started with or without the visit of Tecumseh.
Events that occurred during the American Revolution Ever wondered what led to the American revolution? Or what happened in early America? This will be covering events during the period of 1763 – 1775 that caused conflict between colonial America and Great Britain. Furthermore, how the Virtual Representation of 1775 represents American colonist’s feelings about the Crown and the Great Britain Parliament. Moreover, the arguments and justification for independence of Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson.
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 demand was that “the Continental army needed for them to raise funds and the making of other furnishings for them, and the supply was the women’s enthusiasm in doing this.” (website) The American Revolution lasted over a period of eight long years, during this time the original perspectives of men have changed and began to write more openly about it. The poem entitled “The Attempt is Praise,” goes into detail about the“The patriot females who their country save, Till time’s abyss, absorb’d in heav’nly lays, Shall flow in your eternity of praise.”(ps poem) This was from the mans standpoint praises for the work women did and how their efforts were not
They felt like society in England was corrupt and straying away from Christian belief so they sought for religious freedom and the idea that they could start a colony that would be whole and unified in God. By doing this, they ran into another form of division when they came across the Native Americans who were already habitants of the land. The Puritans looked at these people as if they were animals or savages and built a wall of division between the two different cultures of people. In John Smith’s, “A General History of Virginia, he said, “Each hour expecting the fury of the savages, when God, the patron of all good endeavors, in that desperate extremity so changed the hearts of the savages, that they brought such plenty of their fruits and provisions that no man wanted.” This just shows you of how they viewed the natives and since it wasn’t one of them, then they were bad people. Instead of trying to get along and work with the Indians, they fought them so that they could have land to establish their colony on.
Overall, as Philbrick closes out the book the tensions in the Native American tribes and the English colonist would lead to King Phillips War. As we continue in Philbrick’s book he goes in great detail of King Phillip or also known as Metacom the son of Massasoit. Phillip began to grow uneasy with the economic balance between the colonist and the Native Americans.

This would start an assault by the Native Americans on the English settlements leaving very few survivors to tell about the horrific events.
In 1676, Nathaniel Bacon led a rebellion against Virginia 's Colonial governor, William Berkeley. Fueled by colonists ' fears of Indian attacks. Bacon and his followers used disputes between frontier settlers and Doeg Indians to rationalize an offensive against other nearby tribes.

Rice convincingly argues that this critical event in American history helped to create the Old South and the convergence of slavery, westward expansion, and issues of race.
However, Las Casas felt that the Natives should be treated equally, since he believed Jesus died for the Natives just like he died for the Europeans. He noted their sophisticated, very well-developed societies. When Europeans came into contact with Native Americans, they tried to spread Christianity and force Natives to convert to their religion. This is because people who sided with Sepúlveda felt that their religion was superior and wouldn’t ever fathom that they could adopt any of the Natives’ religions. Places in the “new world” that were under Spanish rule often were exceedingly religiously intolerant.
When the British won the war they established an act called the Proclamation of 1763. This act didn 't allow colonists to travel over the Appalachian mountains. The British did this because they didn 't have the ability to protect colonists over the mountains where there were Indian uprising.
