The Treaty of Paris concluded the Seven-Year War. The French decided they were done fighting and gave up all the land in the Americas, ultimately letting Britain take that land into their
During the Revolutionary War, the unity of the colonists was strong, as they had to fight against the British, despite the British having larger militia forces. In Document C, Richard Henry Lee stated that “all N. America is now most firmly united and as firmly resolved to defend their liberties ad infinitum against every power on Earth that may attempt to take them away.” This was said while the war was happening, and how British wouldn’t stop fighting the colonists until they got their money from taxes. The British were determined to fight until they won, despite how much it hurt both sides. Lee states how despite the size of the conflict, Americans will continue to fight together to win their freedom. Document E is a part of the Continental Congress in 1775 that discusses how Americans needed to bear arms.
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.

Firearms advanced quickly and soon became a staple of armies everywhere. This in turn necessitated all of Europe to rewrite military doctrine and retrain their armies. Perhaps their biggest impact though was initiating social change that would begin the decline of the entire knightly class. The main question left standing is: who stepped in to fill the void left by the knightly
He continues by stating that he hates the customs and pleasures that he is supposed to enjoy during these times of peace; he finds them meaningless. He then claims that he has already set plans into motion, and is currently working on a plot to overthrow the king. Finally claiming that he does not believe in the “hocus pocus” of prophecies, or dreams of foolish men, he is fixed on setting his brother, the king, up for a fall that he will not recover from. Richard, the lowly Duke of Gloucester does not realize, that his actions will set up England for the success it would later enjoy under the Tudors. His treachery will bring forth the beginnings of new empire.
However, they were not. If it wasn’t for the leadership, the Spanish Armada would have a totally different story. If Sir Francis Drake hadn’t thought of his plan, and the Spanish were able to continue their plan. The Armada may have won. The Spanish had 7,000 sailors and had 34,000 soldiers on the ships, their plan was to board the English ships and fight on the deck as they were experienced at fighting on land rather the out at sea.
