In his opinion, the great blessings that America enjoyed were something that every country should experience. Therefore he fought for the ratification of the Treaty as it would support his belief, with one of his strategies being the League of Nations. This was a step away from isolation and neutrality and America would become more involved in the affairs of other
In order to make the dream of coming to America superior, the Europeans were convinced that coming to the New World would allow them to break away from England and begin a new and enriched life. In the letter, A Description of New England, John Smith writes that liberty is free in America, but in England it costs more. The brighter idea of liberty being free to them in America, rather than in Europe makes the Europeans believe that they will be able to start their own government and self-rule which interests them. To further convince the Europeans to come to America, they are told that the land in America is stunning and resourceful. Christopher Columbus writes in his “Letter to Luis de Santangel Regarding the First Voyage” that there are many harbors on the coast of the sea beyond comparison with others, and that there are thousands of different shapes and sizes of trees.
From the failure of the Articles, should the new government, the Constitution, be approved? In 1788, the Constitution was created as the Articles of Confederation wasn’t successful and strong enough for their new government. During that time, a debate went throughout America about the Constitution whether to ratify it or not. Yes, the Constitution should be ratified because a Bill of Rights was promised, no one overpowered (in the government; checks and balances), and it is fair to both citizens and officials. Starting off, a bill of rights was promised which would ensure many things for the citizens.
In The Good Americans, Brown stressed how colonials had varying motives in remaining loyal. Some remained loyal for pragmatic reasons, such as a living in an area occupied by British troops or in anticipation of a British victory, while others were loyal for political reasons, such as having faith in the British Constitution, while others still remained loyal due to family
They tended to be suspicious of democracy. They also Support England in its wars with France. Their support came especially from urban areas, business, and upper classes. They were also strongest in New England and coastal towns. It really surprised me on how different people in the same country can be.
After reviewing the reading, it’s very clear that the southern colonies would be the best place to settle. I would become a farmer because of the business of it. To be more exact I would live in Virginia even though Carolina happen to be more smart when it came to basically everything else than any other colonie. Most importantly why I would chose to be here is because they had access to the cash crops of the time, Tobacco. It allowed the lowest of society to become something and to become very wealthy.
The founding fathers believed that the government’s purpose was to secure the unalienable rights of American citizens to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by protecting them against violations by foreign enemies. Although, the progressives believed that the purpose of the government was to give people the benefit of the programs the government have, while making the people more socially responsible. The Founding Fathers believed it was for the greater good of everyone to be free and do things on their own. They thought that if people had less rules and were able to do whatever they want there would be and inequality of the wealthiness.
Imperialism can not be seen as a horrible thing all the time. These countries often do get protection from us, if ever threaten. My intent for American imperialism is for America to be put on the map. Some of my tactics will help America to do just that. Let us keep positive as American’s that our nationalism being spread for bigger and better things in these countries.
Americans have aspirations to accomplish the tasks Europeans have, but they also are desperate to share their culture. Lastly the mass culture between the two
Tensions with the Native American tribes continued well into the nineteenth century despite efforts on their part of capitulation, assimilation, appeasement and resistance. As the federal government realized that their theory that the Native Americans had been conquered was incorrect they began to establish policy that would assimilate the Indians into white society and culture, but also facilitated the tribes losing their lands to white settlers. (Nash, et al., 2007., p. 255) Assimilation tactics varied and one such way was done through regulation of the fur trade.
The Colonies were striving even more to helping the British because they thought the British would reward by letting them more out to newer lands and going further west, but unfortunately the opposite happened. In Document A we can see that the British gain an immense amount of land, but they placed the Proclamation Line of 1763. This permitted the Colonist from moving further west and staying one place. This brought lots of angry towards the British Empire thus causing their loyalty and relationship with them to vanish. The Colonies began to grow a desire for Freedom and slowly began to grow a more self sufficient nature, leading to the Revolutionary
There has been much debate over the idea of the American colonies separating and becoming independent from Great Britain. The colonies as a whole agree with the idea that it would be much more advantageous to become our own independent country and be able to freely make decisions for the colonies welfare. That is why it has come to my better judgment to agree with the colonies decision to become independent from the British. I believe in this decision because it is very important for a county’s people to have protection. Protection is something the American colonies do not have at the moment and I do not see Great Britain providing this protection for them.
The New England and Southern Colonies at first came across as very similar. Both of the colonies had a big group of people that came from England. The motivations that the two colonies had were different which caused them to go into two completely different directions. A big difference that they faced was that the New England colonies had a very strict religion. The Southern colonies were primarily focused on the economic prosperity.
