The Native Americans had no choice but to play the French and British against each other. By the time of the French and Indian War, they were not just playing the French against the British for goods and guns. (1) It became necessary for the survival of their culture, and the natives were concerned with the vast amounts of land being claimed and settled by the British. The French and Indians were more likely to be allies, although the British did have Native American allies. The Battle of Jumonville Glen is one example of natives and British fighting against the French.
There were also many social unfairness among the taxes between the estates. Also the 3rd Estate peoples were fighting for justice because they were the people who suffered the most pain and lived the poverty life. The French revolution would not have happened unless the king kept and used his power carefully and handling economic, social, and political situations instead of
Prior to the Latin American countries gaining independence, the Creole elites expressed great displeasure with the crown and readily equated themselves with the American colonists before gaining independence from Britain. With this ideology, many Creole’s became enfranchised with Anglo-European culture and enlightenment, convinced that this culture would solve their perceived problems. The Latin American Creole’s believed in both Charles Darwin and Spencer, to show that the fittest survive through evolution and that those concepts apply to the society they lived in. Spencer reinforced the belief that science, industry and progress were interlinked, and with the evolution of society their nations would bloom. Therefore, if an individual was failing in life, blame
Plimoth provided good anchorage and an excellent harbor. Cold climate and thin, rocky soil limited farm size. New Englanders turned to lumbering, shipbuilding, fishing and trade. Freedom from religious persecution motivated the Pilgrims to leave England and settle in Holland; however, they did not fit in and were losing their heritage, so they left to America. Cooperation and hard work were part of the Pilgrim's lifestyle.
However, it was not easy for everyone that was involved with all that occurred. The people that struggled and eventually succeed, for a short period of time, does have the right to consider themselves as the representatives of the French population that does not have any say in this. This revolution, and many other, demonstrated that blood and sweat is smeared all over instead of just seeing as a chapter in our history books. These were individuals who are determined to get their voice heard without any fear; just wants toleration and fairness for the people who have the authority, as human beings, to make their own
That would surely last for no longer, but the French Revolution rose ... The French Revolution is often seen as a bloody anarchic mess, and like many other revolutions, it ended at the end of replacing an authoritarian regime with an authoritarian regime. But even though the revolution was a mess, its ideas changed human history. In the eighteenth century, France was a beautiful and popular country, but society was structured in a way that gave rise to problems for the collection of taxes. They had a system we call "Ancien Régime" This benefited the few Frenchmen, as it meant that the people with money - the generous and priest - should not pay
The Dutch gave an influential tide to both the Natives and the French colonists because they created Fort Orange along the Hudson River, the Dutch saw the French as enemy`s, because they had better supplies like weapons and tools to gain better alliances and trading partners. The French and Iroquois who knew that they would lose their Dutch suppliers to the northern tribes who had better fur pelts. Hoping that with war the Dutch and northern tribes would remain separated, the French and Iroquois decided not to make
The French-Canadians in Lower Canada did not trust the British, they didn’t speak English, and they found British rule without democracy difficult to accept. Control of the colony was in the hands of an oligarchy of merchants and ex-army officers. English seemed to have most of the advantages which made the French feel like their culture was being attacked. Discrimination against the French, unequal taxation and lack of power within the government became the main focus of reform in Lower Canada. The French-Canadians preferred a democratic government.
The French became more involved in the new world sending over more migrants to populate their colonies, which led to the Jesuits being able to abandon more gentler forms of diplomacy and spread their agenda more effectively. Father Pierron deliberately attempted to cause trouble between the French and the Mohawk as he believed that the presence of France gave him immunity to freely “denounce mohawk customs, calling on those present to convert to Christianity” even though the Mohawks resisted these calls (JR 142). Father Pierron uses the idea of war to achieve his goals diplomatically by spreading a rumor that he intended “to go to Quebec” and that his stay in the village is what was needed “in order to main the peace”(JR 143,144). Father
Another example, of their help is how they offered safe harbors in the Caribbean and the French Coast. The last way that the French Helped us was by giving us loans and subsidies to assist us with war making.

They were worried that the English would attack the unprepared Frenchman.
