After the King of France recognized the potential of the newly acquired land, he persuaded citizens of France to emigrate. He would promise filles de rois dowries if they moved to New France. This caused thousands of citizens emigrating not only for the money, but also for better jobs. They wouldnt need to pay as much tithe and got more land. Sadly, the Native Americans didn 't enjoy people taking their land causing a lot of killing.
The French and Indian War was important to the American Revolution because the debt from the war was the reason that Parliament started taxing the colonists. Also, the French and Indian War made Britain very weak, making the colonists’ actions work a whole lot better. Since France was not happy with the outcome of their war with Britain this was a main reasons for France’s interest in helping the now Americans throughout the Revolutionary War, which was very important to the colonies’ victory. The reason why Britain started to tax the colonists was because of the debt resulting from the French and Indian War. The first tax was the the tax on sugar, which was put on the colonists to help pay off the war debt.
The North had an excellent Navy that had the ability to blockade things that were headed to the Southern states. The South desperately needed food, weapons, and ammunition but weren’t able to get their supplies because the North had blockades that stopped the supplies they needed. The North also had gun factories, shipyards, and coal readily available at anytime which puts them at a huge advantage over the South. They had more money and were just more advanced in their industry, which helped them win the civil war. The South didn’t use slaves as soldiers but the North recruited black men and included the free slaves after the emancipation proclamation was approved.
Previous times in the government when corruption occured caused the Republicans to split and fight against each other. This time, it created more problems for an already corrupt government. The period after Garfield’s term, people wanted to change politics with a civil service reform. This reform allowed officials to join office who were qualified, which made becoming part of the office a lot more fair and equal for everyone. This did cause struggles in the beginning, but eventually paid off in the future by creating more equal politics.
The goal of the American Revolution was to get away from the British government and be free. The Declaration of Independence was basically announcing them as not the thirteen colonies but as the first thirteen states of the U.S. The goals of both of these are different for a reason, because the French Revolution wanted a government and the American Revolution wanted to get away from their government. The revolutions were similar because they both wanted a different ruler and they both had absolute monarchs. They were also similar because they both had social inequalities which was basically if you were in a different social class you were treated differently.
Another reason the French and Indian war helped start the oncoming American Revolution was all of the boycotts as a result of Britain trying to increase its revenue from the colonists and crawl out of debt. The boycotts of British products - hurting the British mercantile system- were much more effective after the French and Indian War and the fact that the French lost the war made France more interested in helping the colonists in the American Revolution (Brinkley, 112-113). The money France offered proved to be a key piece to the colonies gaining their independence from Britain. Without the French and Indian war it’s doubtful the American Revolution would ever have
The most well-known colonist groups in the New World at the time, were the English and Spanish. The colonists that came from England started off as friends with the nearby natives, this friendship began when the Indian Chief requested peace with colonists. He asked for the them to put away their guns in order to establish a better relationship, and although the colonists believed the Native Americans to be ‘barbaric’, they accepted the offer of peace. The English colonists and Native Americans, now being allies, even began trade with each other. Unfortunately, soon after peace had been established, the new chief began protesting the peace with the colonists.
Through the process of “kill the Indian and Save the Man”, these acts may be viewed as inhuman and evil to the Indians’ point of view, but this change has brought Indians to be able to communicate their concerns with the United States government effectively than before. For example, John Ross’s defense of the Cherokee freedom was to send a petition to President Andrew Jackson, though it did not succeed in gaining Cherokee’s rights, he still communicate effectively in the petition of the tribes’ concerns. Moreover, by being proficient in speaking in English, Natives have less to worry about lack of representation due to language barrier. In the boarding school, students are better English speakers and “got employed the knowledge and skills they acquired in their subsequent careers” (Calloway, 457). Even though these careers are not so great job, Indians in these job titles are in better position than those who do not have the knowledge and skills for the
It is very hard to be able to say which factor had a greater impact because to an extent both factors had a huge impact as they coincided with one and other. And basically if you removed one or the other you wouldn’t end up with the same colonies and there is no way of knowing which colonies we would have gotten either. In my opinion I think that the economic factors outweighed the religious factors in colonization. I feel this way because a large number of immigrants migrated to the new colonies in search of a better life as the economy was stronger and possible living standards were better than their previous ones. Let’s not discredit those people who moved to the new colonies to be able to practice their own religion and have their own religious
The British in particular were not seeking to save souls or to enlighten the people of the pacific, they were looking to create trade and profits. The Russians started expanding eastward and by 1680 they reached the edge of Siberia; Kamchatka, which eventually become the port for the later expeditions to the northwestern parts of America. The Russians like the Spaniards had a particular way of treating native people. When describing the native people of Siberia, the Russians said “Only in the power of speech do they differ from animals” (Taylor pg. 447).
Thesis: From my understanding, during the process of the economy’s expansion; the reason for this, are due to, immigration and better opportunities. Immigrants, from Southern and Eastern Europe outnumbered cities, by over one to three million people. There were, of course, other reasons for this expansion; The laissez-faire was the reason for this as well. They were the policy that wouldn’t deal with free trade, free enterprise, as well as, marketing. Although, many people thought it only protect only the weak competitors from better ones.
In New England, the soil quality and weather was much less lucrative. Crops such as tobacco or sugar couldn’t survive the cold weather or rocky topsoil, so colonists had to find other means to make money. Out of this dilemma rose the development of the lumber, fishing, and fur pelt trade. The availability of lumber for ships, the abundance of fish in the area, and the rich pelts of the northeastern wildlife helped lead to the development of an economy that became focused on a merchant
Polish immigrants did not seem to face the same struggles the Asian population had to endure, I believe this is due to the fact that they were European immigrants, nevertheless they still encountered hardships. During the 1890s polish immigrant was the highest level, and this caused some problems for American citizens and they became intolerant towards the immigrants. Some returned to their homeland, while it made other immigrants fight harder and rely on each other, They formed many groups, such as the Polish Union, the Polish National Alliance, the Polish American Congress, and even the Polish Roman Catholic Union. I think some of the Americans were under the impression more would return home, but that wasn’t the case (Asian American History
