New England’s Economy Farming- New England had very rocky and hard soil. Farmers had terrible issues with growing crops. Farmers cleared rocks and trees from the soil before planting anything, and then struggled even then because of long, cold winters with no or little sunlight for the plants!

King Philips War and Bacon’s Rebellion were two pivotal points in early American history. Ironically, they both shared many similarities between them. There are three main points of discussion in comparison of the two conflicts: 1) why the fighting started, 2) what they were fighting over, and finally 3) who they were fighting against. Each of these conflicts resulted in tragic loss of many lives of settlers and Indians and caused even more tension between the English and the Native Americans.
he Natives were being treated unfairly by the Puritans caused the King Philip’s War of 1675. King Philip's believed that the colonists took his land without his permission.

In the year 1775, the american colonies rebelled from Great Britain. In 1839, tensions boiled over between China and Great Britain leading to two wars over a twenty year period and again, in the 1900’s tensions constantly flared between soviet states and the rest of the world. Every one of these “wars”, amongst others, have a common leading cause, and it’s actually not the imperialistic tendencies of England. Rather it has to do with the economic policies used by the countries involved. In 1775 it was in large parts due to tariffs, in 1839 it was trade embargos, and in the 1900’s it was a conflict of ideals between that of communism and that of capitalism.
The Battle at Bunker Hill, which occurred on June 17, 1775, lasted no more than two hours, yet it was one of the bloodiest and most important battles of the American Revolution. Despite being defeated by the British, American forces held their own, wounding or killing nearly half of the Redcoats who fought in the battle. The Americans had significantly less soldiers than the British and were running low on ammunition by the end of the battle. However, the Battle at Bunker Hill is significant to the American Revolution because it gave Americans the confidence they needed to continue fighting, eventually winning the revolution, and made the British realize that American forces were stronger than they had originally assumed. During the Autumn and Winter of 1774 tensions between the British and American forces grew.
