In the 18th and 17th centuries, the English colonists saw unity between powers as helpful towards them that both can benefit, but some saw it as ways to just cause controversy. Now you can look at it as being all put together and well organized in your colony or having disagreements that can lead to pulling an alliance apart. The similarities and differences were used between the colonies and provided new developments that changed the way the colonist looked upon their neighbor. For example, in Document 6 there 's a political cartoon and it symbolises how it the pieces were put back together then it can get stronger and become more powerful. It gave a meaning to if you did not join the French and their Indian allies or be destroyed by their power. This shows one of many of the different looks upon
The British colonies in the Chesapeake region and those of the New England region were both similar yet different in certain ways. One because both the colonist that settled there were looking for new opportunities. However, it was mostly second son aristocrats, which means the first born usually inherits the better half of the father’s riches. Their lives in England had either been mistreated or they were unable to flourish economically. Regardless of whether they were searching the land for expansive homesteads, religious freedom, or exchanging and merchant opportunities, the colonist in both regions were searching for another land in the New World. They were getting away from issues they had experienced in England, which took into consideration colonists to be similar.

Early America was a formation of colonies formed into one united nation. The founding fathers of America shaped all of America 's ideas, and also structured the american democracy which is still present today.

“The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind” (Paine 1). With the Revolutionary War beginning in 1775, and the publication of Common Sense, by Thomas Paine, only a year later, this statement was widely recognized and addressed the issue at hand: the fight for independence. According to Paine’s assertion, America’s desire for peace and freedom is a basic necessity of life; it is what all men desire. Despite this innate thirst for liberty, many residents of America’s thirteen colonies were fearful of Great Britain, and because of this fear, complied with Great Britain’s every whim. Consequently, most colonists were hesitant to fight against the mother country for independence. But Paine would not accept this attitude.
Why are people still poor to this day? That is a very broad question but we do know that poverty is still a crucial problem to achieving overall world happiness even in 2018. Poverty has been around for millennia but it 's even more of a problem now in 2018. This is because it is becoming more extreme. For example, in Afghanistan 36% of the population, lives in absolute, extreme poverty and 37% lives just above the determined poverty line. Even though around $35 billion was put into the country from 2002-2009. Even the nuber one cause of death is poverty.

Although, the movie never says why he is poor we can infer. Chris was poor due to three main reasons, expensive
Have you ever thought about the concept of freedom? Freedom is a point of perspective and not a point of a state of being. This can be seen in the story comparison in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Young Goodman Brown and Phillis Wheatley’s To the University of Cambridge, in New-England. You take Yong Goodman Brown, a man living in an area and time where it is deeply rooted in their Christian beliefs. Then you have Phillis Wheatley who is an African slave who is writing to privileged white men in Cambridge. Both are planted firmly in their Christian faith and the difference is one of them is a slave, and the other one is a free man with a wife and family. Yet, after reading Young Goodman Brown, it seems that only one of them
The Guilded age was a period of wealth and improvement which was used to cover up poverty and corruption inside the united states.

Phillis Wheatley wrote her groundbreaking poems in an era known as the Revolutionary Era. This time in history was one of struggles and gaining independance, much like Phillis’ life story. These struggles came when America had declared a war on England in order to become their own free nation. Undoubtedly the war against England and America effected Wheatley.

Following the death of Fredrick’s, slave owner, Captain Anthony, Douglass was sold to the ownership of Anthony’s son-in-law. Douglass was later hired out to a professional slave breaker, a man who would beat and mistreat slaves until they gave up and did whatever they were told. Weeks later, Douglass began to fight back, consequently the beatings stopped. He then became under the ownership of the Auld’s.

Phillis Wheatly was an African slave in the begging of the 18th century. She was stolen from her homeland at the age of seven years old. Luckily her owners in America were very good people who couldn’t bear to treat their slaves wrongly. The Wheatlys also allowed Phillis to write to many great people. Many critics have been skeptical of Phillis for not starting a slave revolt or for not being more like Harriet Tubman. I disagree completely with such critics. Phillis did many other great things. To criticize her on her role in the colonial world is wrong because her owners were kid to her, she was busy writing great people, and because she accepted her place in life while making the most of it.
The issue of poverty has been changed. The French and the English during the 18th century experience poverty different than what people today in the 21st century experience. Back in the 18th century people weren't offered government aid. The government didn't care about the poor. Poverty looks different now. You can still own some luxuries and still be considered poor.
The average life a person lives in this time period comes easy. Though we may have certain struggles, they don’t compare to the daily problems of lower class throughout the Victorian Era.

All ages got the enjoyment of life stolen from them in this rigid era. Lack of help would only ruin these people as well as the time period as a whole.
