The colonists participated in smuggling to try to avoid the taxes, and The Sugar Act made legal sugar trade and transport extremely complicated and frustrating, which also made smuggling seem more appealing for the colonists (“The Sugar Act”). This caused the British to crack down on smuggling and enforce the collecting of the taxes, further angering the colonists. This is only one of the many acts that taxed the colonists. Each one angered the colonists more and more, ultimately leading to the Revolutionary War and the liberation of the colonies (Tim George, “The 4 Acts That Lead To The American Revolution”). The Sugar Act had affected the colonies in different ways.
The lack of need for farming for the economy led to the abolishment of slavery, as it was seen as unnecessary based off the economy. On the other hand, the Chesapeake colonies had a climate that was conducive to farming and cash crops and needed slavery. With rich soil and complete reliance on tobacco as a cash crop for the economy, plantations were established in order to cultivate tobacco on a larger scale. As a result, the Chesapeake colonies were much more labor intensive in comparison to the New England colonies. Slaves began to outweigh the number of indentured servants due to the Slave Codes which made the slaves and their descendants property rather than people and lack of opportunities for indentured servants.
When tailoring first started out people often had to be sewn into their clothes making getting dressed difficult. Tailored clothes were also designed with much more aesthetic detail such as pictures being “embroidered by hand” (Source 2. 5) which meant clothes took hours upon hours to finish. These fancy clothes were a symbol of wealth because only the rich could afford to have these clothes custom made for them. Lower or middle class people often had their own family members making clothes for them because they could not afford to have a tailor.
During the Elizabethan Era food varied according to how wealthy or poor you were. The poor had access to foods like expensive meats, but they usually couldn’t afford them. If the poor did get high class foods, they would usually sell it to the wealthy so they could make money. They would use this money to pay for things like rent and taxes. Although the lower class didn’t get to eat pleasantries very often, they were satisfied with the foods they had.
The Pope was competing for political power in Italy, and had to fight off invasions from other countries. In addition, Pope Leo X (son of Lorenzo de Medici), was a great patron (contributes money) of arts and artists to create very expensive works, however the Pope paid for the art with the Church’s money. The church paid for this by having the peasants pay higher tithes (taxes to the church) and increasing the cost of baptisms and marriages. The use of indulgences was also a major reason people wanted a reform. An indulgence is a pardon for their sins.
The Boston Tea Party was a very important event that helped lead to the American Revolution. This was because the colonists were having to pay for the debt that was from the French and Indian war. They got taxed a lot because of it. The Boston Tea Party occurred on December 16, 1773 on the Boston Harbor. This event was important to the American Revolution because it started the intolerable acts which got many colonists from other colonies upset.
In history, Christians held Muslims to a threatening status before the crusades even began. In fact, the chances that the Christians met Muslims greatly improved their overall idea of them. During the crusades trade wasn’t allowed to be exchanged in fear of the Christians that would be excommunicated for associating with the Islams, even though trade still continued throughout the Crusades regardless. Politically the religious impact from the Crusades was in the massive expenditures that created an overwhelming effect on European politics. The crusades had massive armies that needed to be transported across extensive amounts of land which costed large sums of money.
While these new knights were more powerful, they were also much more expensive. Horses were expensive and hard to keep, and their armor was much harder to create and maintain as well. During this time, much of western Europe relied on the barter system, rather than a formal currency, therefore Charles Martel could not simply pay people to become knights for him. The one thing he did have that he could give was land. He was able to give sections of land to vassals, who in turn would repay him by fighting for him.
Keep in mind, these numbers reflect only the beef industry, not including meats such as pork, chickens and other industries that produce meat. Alongside to the economic benefits that meat brings into our society, meat industries also help people from the lower class. Without meat industries, people from the lower class would eventually starve out as their easy and cheap access to food would be taken away from them. Simply eating small grains and vegetables would no longer provide the same amount of nutrients in their diet as previously mentioned in the paragraph above. It is for this reason that eating meat is ethical as taking it away would cause detrimental effects to our
With the coming of England 's colonialism, there was now a reverse of the direction of textile India must export the raw cotton and import the garments from English factories to their market at exorbitant prices. It also created unemployment for a large community of weavers and many of them migrated to work in the field of agriculture instead. This situation increased pressure on the rural economy and livelihood. Another major economic impact of the British policies in India was many commercial crops such as tea, coffee, indigo, and opium. The opium market was controlled by the British traders, they did not give a chance for India reap the profit and forced India to produce indigo and sell directly to the British and they would use this product as dyeing agent for cloth
The taxes that the Sugar Act placed made the most money for Britain, more than any of the other taxes did. The colonist were very upset with the Sugar Act because of the way it was enforced. The Sugar Act took away the colonist’s right to a trial by jury when the British set up the Admiralty courts. Admiralty courts were where a judge decides the outcome rather than the colonial courts. The judges would earn 5% of however much the cargo load was worth if they could prove the person accused was guilty.
Then, the king heavily taxed us for buying these goods. Also, the British could search any ship they wanted, so they didn’t let us receive sugar from other countries. The Stamp Act also was very unfair. This was when England made the colonists only buy paper with the English stamp on it. Every paper product had to be made out of it, and this special paper had a heavy tax on it.
Page 119- “New England’s rum distillers led the opposition to the new rules by helping to organize a boycott of imports from Britain.” Response - In this passage, New England had distilling due to the rum’s popularity in the colonies since there were only a few choices of alcoholic beverages. Of course, Britain was not pleased with this, which resulted in trade wars with New England and America. The trade relationships between these countries were not as good and it became worse. This started the American revolution because of the dispute of trading. Journal #9.
The government role expanded from 1877-1920 because of all the power that was being abuse by the rich. For a long time, the country dealt with inequality, such as paying anyone who was not a white man less and over working them. Not only was abused power and inequality pay depending on your color or gender or age a problem but the food was being processed with chemicals that made people sick and in other cases die. The growing of the government is good because it shortened work hours for women, made it safer to eat meat and other foods, and dealt with politicians who bought their way to office.
The daily life of a Medieval peasant was difficult and without a lot of resources. One reason life was difficult is because food was scarce. A lot of the food that they grew went to the market to be sold to the wealthy, they got some money in return, they mostly bought bread made from barley and rye. They got their water from a well to satisfy their thirst, they also mixed the water with honey. They also drank ale which is a form of beer.
