Geography's effect on the early North American colonies is undeniable, but the way location affected the people of the early colonies is much more significant. Primarily, the economy was the biggest aspect of life affected by geography. From the Atlantic Ocean acting as a barrier from the New World to the Old World, and to the climate difference between the cold winters of the New England colonies to the hot summers in the Southern colonies, each played a central role in the development of the colonies. Good or bad, geography was always an essential factor economically for those who lived in the early southern, middle, and northern colonies. Geography has continually influenced the way people live and the early colonies were no different.
During the late 18th century, Great Britain and her North American colonies clashed voraciously. This combat was grounded upon their multiple political, social and economic differences. After several wars across the globe, including the one fought in the colonies, the French and Indian War, Britain emerged as the main player in North America. It had successfully stripped France and Spain of most of their territory and now owned the largest share of the North American colonies. Although Britain had emerged victorious in terms of territory owned, it had also produced the greatest debt.
However the different battle tactics used by the colonial militia and intervention of other countries like France played a role on a much larger scale in the result of America’s victory. Therefore, America 's success was based more on America’s guerilla warfare and the support from other countries than the debt of the British. The Seven Years War, prior to the American Revolution, broke off with Britain at a national debt of 140 million pounds. Great Britain put taxes on their own citizens to help pay off the debt of their country. The American Revolution took an additional extensive amount of money out of Britain.
WW1 was a terrible war between the central powers; Germany, Austria-Hungary and Ottoman Empire against the allied powers; Great Britain, France, Russia and later joined by the U.S. and Italy. The main reason why all the countries got irate at each other was because of the death of Archduke Franz Ferdinand the heir to Austria’s throne. But overall the main causes of WW1 were either Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism or Nationalism. I strongly believe that the cause that had the biggest impact on WW1 was Imperialism. My first reason on why Imperialism was the main cause of WW1 was because of geographic purposes.
Rome is best known for being one of the earliest superpowers because of its strong army. However, Roman society had its problems and caused Rome to go into a downfall. During this downfall Rome became a target for invaders. Rome fell and went into the Medieval time period, best known as the Middle Ages. Labels that best describe the Middle Ages are Age of Faith, Golden Ages, but the Dark Ages is the best.
Ireland is known for its history of failed rebellions, but each rising holds a fundamental role in history. If it weren’t for these rebellions, what else would inspire the country to fight for liberation. uprisings gave the people of Ireland reason to believe they could make a difference even when they resented other religions. The 1798 rebellion may have lacked some logic but it was extremely potent with regards to modern
There are a lot of turning point that led to the revolutionary war. Every act that the king signed and put intoto effect plus the actions of the red coats fueled the colonies motivation to start a revolution . The four major reasons were the stamp act, Tea act ,common sense by Thomas paine, declaration of independence The stamp act 1765 was the first direct tax put on the British colonies in North America (DOC.A). The colonies were not fond of the stamp act they had no say in what the tax should be on nor what it should be spent on. There was a tax on every piece of printed paper used like licences, newspapers, marriage license, and playing cards .
During the Colonial Period there were many complications involving the British rule and how much power the king should have since he was trying to rule from thousands of miles away. The king sent troops and placed taxes on common luxuries, but there was so much he could do before the people of the American colonies got angry and wanted to fight back. Two influential writings at that time were Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and Patrick Henry’s speech “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” . They both encourage the colonists to join the revolutionary cause by using rhetoric. Both works are well know and they made a lasting impact in the Revolutionary War and in the nation’s history.
The Captains of Industry were certainly one of the most important factors in the development of United States in the period directly after the Civil War. While there is some merit to the argument that the industrial leaders were Robber Barons that did more harm than good, their contributions to American society clearly outweigh those negatives. The Captains of Industry quite literally revolutionized the American way of life that gave the U.S. the highest standard of living in the world prior to the outbreak of World War I. This was made possible due to the emergence of corporations in areas such as finance, steel, oil, and railroads. When these men combined with other factors, such as the mechanization of agriculture, immigration, migration,
