American Revolution: The American Revolution is a very important event in U.S history and I think that this is the most important event in U.S history. It was known as the war of Independence and there is a reason why. It was caused by tension between Britain and the 13 colonies about independence. This was a long battle but was won by the colonist so they gained independence. I think that this is the most important because without this battle the America wouldn't be the same.
Bunker Hill, Saratoga and Yorktown. The battles that occurred here changed the course of American History forever. Until the Battle of Bunker Hill, the British did not have any idea about the strength of the American Army. After Bunker Hill though, both sides got an idea about the strengths and weaknesses possessed by the other side. Saratoga is often declared “the Turning Point of the American Revolution.”
The American Civil War is one of the main events in American history, and maybe the most important one after the revolution of 1776 which created the United States. The Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865 and we can say that in some way it determined the kind of nation that the United States would be. Out of the existing 34 states at the time, approximately 10 of them had withdrawn from the United States and formed the Confederacy. The Confederate States of America, or the “South”, consisted of slave states, were slavery was legal. The remaining states, or the “North”, formed the Union.
One of the most influential conflicts in American history is the founding of the original colonies in the early 1600’s. The most widely recognized early colonies included the Plymouth and Jamestown English settlements. When comparing the settlements of Plymouth and Jamestown, it is important to acknowledge the similarities and differences in relationships between Native Americans and the English Settlers; specific significant differences include encounters, intermediates, wars, and treaties. These comparisons prove the attitude and role the Native Americans and settlers played in each other’s status as measured by social, economic, and cultural factors. Encounters between Native Americans and English settlers demonstrate the attitudes and
The American Revolution had many social impacts during the war which was first, the slaves were being bribed by the British basically if the Africans joined their side they could have their freedom not knowing the whole American Revolution was centered on freedom. Second the American Revolution separated the colonies from England and Lastly the Indians sided with whoever they thought was going to win the war in hopes of their land being left alone dependent of the outcome. Social movements are a group effort in trying to act out, change, or defy political and social problems. When it comes to social movements Tom Hayden is an important person when it comes to this topic. He has had well over 50 years in the social movement area starting in
The american revolution resulted in many inspirations around the world, such as the french revolution in 1789 to go against absolute monarchy. It also helped push the independence movement in america in the early 19th century. It also helped push independence in africa and asia. The revolution resulted in an american victory in 1781.
In 1775, the American colonies won the Revolutionary war against Great Britain. The war resulted in America’s independence from Britain and contributed to major fundamental changes in American history. The Americans had a number of advantages that helped them win the war against Britain, however they also faced tremendous difficulty prior to winning the war. To begin, the Americans were outnumbered against a professional, fully equipped army of 50,000 British troops. Unlike the British army, the American army consisted of 20,000 inexperienced troops and faced desperate shortages of firearm, uniforms, and food.
In the number 5 spot for the most important events in U.S. history in my opinion is The Civil War. I think that because it was an important for america war it took place from 1861 to 1865. It was the war for the survival of the union or the independence for confederacy. It was between the north and the south about slavery and all the other problems that were happening at the time. For the fourth spot on the list I would have to say 9/11.
The American Revolution is an important event because it inspired other Countries to revolt for their freedoms. The Revolution led to a few negative things such as French going bankrupt from spending to much on war, or how the revolution is used by America's enemies. The Revolution showed how costly and risky it is. Overall I think the Revolution shows that if the government fails to protect the citizens rights they could oppressed or
Most historians have classified the people of this era into three groups. One was the white colonists, or blancs. A second was the free blacks (usually mixed-race, known as mulattoes or gens de couleur libres, free people of color) and the third group, outnumbering the others by a ratio of ten to one, was made up of mostly African-bornslaves. Although a majority of multi-racial people were free, they did not enjoy equal status with whites. They were viewed as second class and subjected to many personal and professional slights, indignities and unfair laws if they stepped out of line.
