The effect of the Stamp Act crisis was the Virginia Resolves which stated that anyone who approved the taxation of Virginia was an enemy of the colony. The British government also imposed their troops onto the colonists’ lands, placing four regiments of regular troops in the city. The troops often looked for jobs during off-duty in which created competition for the locals. The effect of this was the Boston Massacre which was British troops shooting into a crowd of Boston laborers. In the perspective of the colonists, the British comes in and tries to take what is theirs, imposes taxes for a war the colonists didn’t even ask Britain to interfere with, sends their troops which the colonist has to maintain and care for even though their taking their jobs thus, leaving little to no jobs left for the locals, then after getting fed up with the fact that Britain is controlling a land that isn’t theirs, they protest in which causes the same British troops that took their jobs and to enter their homes to shoot into a crowd that was weaponless.
King George III and Parliament restricted the colonists in almost everything they did. Next, the Boston Massacre helped lead to the American Revolution. It proved that the British were in charge and violent, and the colonists were enraged. Lastly, colonists had no representation in Parliament. Laws and taxes were passed without them having a say.
The war of 1812 pitted the young America against the large empowered force of Britain, as well as many native Americans. This war was a huge influential factor in the growth of America from that point on. Britain's tyrannical rule over America and Canada eventually brought America to war. Although they suffered many casualties, American troops pushed the redcoats back and boosted the nation's confidence. The outcome of this war affected America’s foreign policies, economy, and society as a whole.
There was a tax on every piece of printed paper used like licences, newspapers, marriage license, and playing cards . The stamp act was made to help get the British out of debt after the French and Indian war. Another turning point was the Tea act Dec 15,1773 a big cause was the Boston massacre where "a taunting mob threw sticks, stones, and snowballs at a frightened group of soldiers guarding the customs-house on king street in Boston" (DOC C). A rule of the tea act was "whoever shall aid,or abet, or in any manner assist in the induction of introduction of tea, from any whatsoever, into this colony, while it is subject, by British act of parliament, to the payment of duty, for the purpose of raising a revenue in American, he shall be deemed
The American Revolutionary War came about after decades of grievances on the part of the American colonies, grievances which were put in place by the British Parliamentary system. The lack of American representation in parliament paired with the multitudes of acts designed to take advantage of the colonies were cause enough for the colonies to revolt and to overthrow their government. There are few who would disagree with the American’s justification for the revolution, would Locke be one of them? No he would not, the American colonies were fully justified under Lockean reasons for revolution, considering how long they endured the grievances and the legislature that was passed against them.
Both of these wars played a crucial role in developing the United States of America. Although the Revolutionary War is credited with having the most important impact, the Civil War changed America more significantly, and for the better. The American Revolution (War of Independence) is one of the most crucial wars in American history. The American Revolution had begun as a rebellion, like most situations.
The Patriots sparked the American Revolution, which was uncalled for according the British, and by initiating this revolution, they cut all ties with the British along with all of the benefits they received. The Patriots also blamed their rebelling on British “tyranny” but according to the actual effects and intentions of the Sugar and Stamp Acts, the British were not tyrants. Finally, the Patriots unjustly and repeatedly broke laws and acted violently. This proves the Patriots were unjust to spark the revolution thus making the American Revolution
Historians point to a number of reasons that caused the American Revolution, but I believe the two most important things that affected the colonies was the French and Indian War along with the British policy changes that they had made after the Seven-Year War. The French and British had, had a long history of not getting along. When the French tried to take over more land towards the Ohio River Valley, the British decided it was time to declare war. It could be known as the first “World War” because it took place not only in the Americas but also a lot of Europe. The French put up quite the fight.
The Declaration of Independence is writing to send to King George telling him that the United States of America were separating from his rule. The men who sent it to him also sent a list of grievances along with it. Grievance number sixteen said, “For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent.” This grievance means that King George wouldn’t let them trade with anyone else in the world except with Britain.
HE then destroyed the opium in 1839. The British were enraged and demanded compensation for their stolen goods. The British merchant demanded compensation for the seized goods, which Superintendent Charles Elliot assured would be provided by the British Government. However, unsurprisingly, the British were unwilling to compensate their own merchants for the seized Opium and believed that the Chinese had to do that instead. A fierce and prolonged public battle took place on the matter.
The Revolutionary War The Revolutionary War, also known as the American Revolution, was a significant event in American History. The rising tensions between the colonies and Britain created a desire for colonists’ independance. The revolution can be described as “...a political upheaval”(1), taking place between 1775 and 1783. In the war, the best of American character was displayed as the colonists prevailed againsts all odds. Rejecting the rule of Britain the colonists overthrew their monarchy to gain independence and founded the United States of America as a democracy.
Sons of Liberty ¨He that takes this down is an enemy to his country.¨ Incited by the Sons of Liberty. Thousands gathered and a sign was placed on the effigy of Andrew Oliver. The Sons of Liberty were american heros because they helped nullify the stamp act, they gave average people a way to be involved, they were the ones who started the revolution. Stamp Act, passed by the British Parliament in early 1765, levied a tax on colonial legal documents, licenses, port clearances, newspapers, cards, and dice. As soon as they heard about the law, American colonists began complaining that this was a new form of taxation without their consent.
In my opinion the one event that had the most significant role in the American Revolution was when the British made the Coercive/ Intolerable Acts. When the British made these acts, they cut off ports and a colony, and made a number of acts to punish the colonies. These acts made the colonist start an uprising against the British. These uprises lead to the colonist going against the British and starting the American Revolution.
The American Revolution began in 1775 and concluded in 1783. It was a political uprising, including 13 of Great Britain’s North American colonies, who fought for independence. This resulted in the making of the United States Of America. This event is important as it not only attracted the attention of political circles within the European continent, but it’s high success enhanced the concept of natural rights through the Western world.
