As cannon balls flew threw the sky, I knew I had to save my country. My family heard about our glory, that we won Trenton. I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are family, glory and freedom.These three reasons are very important, especially for us soldiers. Many things happened during this timeline like in 1773 the Boston tea party happened, in 1776 the declaration of independence was signed, in 1787 the writing of the constitution began, in 1783 the treaty of Paris ended the revolutionary war. Also, many diseases went on during this war, including more things for example: we were the Continental army, many people deserted to not fight in the war, scarlet fever was one of the best known diseases, Howe's army quartered in Philadelphia, valley forge was a camp 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia, quakers were people who fed the Continental army.
Samuel Adams feared a Civil War was going to occur and wanted to prevent any occurrence of such thing. By 1786, George Washington had enjoyed about 3 years of retirement. However, when news spread of a rebellion in Massachusetts, Washington became concerned. Anxious for news, he relied heavily on reports from old companions such as General Henry Knox and General Benjamin Lincoln of Massachusetts. Shays Rebellion led to George Washington ultimately coming out of retirement.
Literary Analysis: Response to Paul Revere’s Ride A courageous patriot galloping all through the night to warn the others that British troops were coming by sea. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem: Paul Revere’s Ride, although very intriguing, is a somewhat glorified. First of all, in Longfellow’s poem the lantern signal in the North Church Tower is used to communicate to Paul Revere which route the British troops were traveling (land or sea), but in the real event l event it was used to let the others know if Paul Revere got caught by the British. Another flaw is that Paul Revere wasn’t the only patriot riding April 18, 1775, there were two others spreading the word: William Dawes and Samuel Prescott. Conversely to the poem, Samuel Prescott
was an importer company, they were hit hard when the act was enforced. Morris and Willing chose the side of the colonials and engaged in the movements against British rule (Kindig). Morris led a street protest, which later he wrote that if he had not complied he feared his house would have been torn down “brick by brick” (“Robert Morris”2011). Willing and Morris produced the first non-importation agreement; this ended slave trade in Philadelphia in 1769. In 1775 Morris was asked to be one of the wardens of the port of Philadelphia, in this position he convinced the captain of the tea ship Polly to return to England.
The differences between these two are the way they are told. They have many differences between them. In the poem it mention that he didn’t got caught by the British. In the letter it said that he did get caught by the British and a British officer hit him on the head with the pistol. Also, in the poem it said that he crossed the Charles River on boat, but if you read the letter it said that he crossed the Charles River with the help of two friends.
His speech convinced many people to turn against the King. Six months after the speech and before the beginning of the war, Henry was an “early revolutionary.” Henry was in strong agreement with Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty, a local militia in Boston that the colonists needed to fight. Without Henry's courageous speaking there might not have been a Revolutionary War because his speech convinced many Loyalists to turn on King George III. According to Discerning History. Com,“Through his push for a Bill of Rights, his call of the country to arms, and his opposition to the Stamp Act through the Virginia Resolves, Patrick Henry served his country well.
The pueblo revolt was something that took place so quickly. The pueblos felt as if they were being used and decided to rebel against the Spanish. Before the pueblo revolt there was some other issues in history that lead up to this event. The American Revolution in 1776 was not a first war in America that fought for freedom, but before the American Revolution, there was another revolutionary war that fought for the same reasons. People seem to be forgetting and not realizing that we did have a revolutionary war before the American Revolution in 1776.
He pressed for his children’s freedom up to his dying breath, even though he was not victorious in freeing his grandchildren, after his death, his children were finally granted their freedom (186-187) After thirty years of enslaved labor, Ibrahima encountered Marschalk, who believed Ibrahima was of royal descent, a Moor (pg. 89). This confusion was the reason why Ibrahima was allowed back to his homeland. Because of the false letters Marschalk sent to President John Quincy Adams, it changed the results of the elections of 1828. This brought Ibrahima’s departure quicker and assisted him on gaining large publicity to acquire the money needed to free his family from
This is proven to us in the poem when it says “He said to his friend, ‘If the British march By land or sea from the town to-night, Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch Of the North Church tower as a signal light,-- One if by land, and two if by sea; And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country folk to be up and to arm.’” This really proves he did not climb the church tower, and told Colonel Conant to hand up the lanterns two days before. This proves that even if the poem was written way after the actual ride it still got some facts
The issue of abolishing slavery was left out of the Declaration of Independence because in 1776 there was already action being taken for slaves and it is stated in Lord Dunmore’s Proclamation on Slave Emancipation (1775). Earl of Dunmore, John Murray, a royal governor and a Scottish aristocrat, wrote the Lord Dunmore’s Proclamation on Slave Emancipation, it was during a war and it grew out of Dunmore’s efforts to counter an impending attack on his capital of Williamsburg by the patriot military in the spring of 1775, when he threatened to free and arm slaves to defend the cause of royal government. During the time he was retreating, he was gathering slaves. His proclamation was commanding Virginians to support the crown or be judged. Traitors now offered freedom to all slaves and indentured servants belonging to rebels and able to bear arms for the crown.
