After years of being controlled by the French, the thirteen American colonies thought that the Seven Years War would be their salvation. While the British did defeat the French and gain the territories in the colonies, it was not the answer the colonists were looking for. The British gained complete control over the colonies. The colonies were tired of being restrained and saw a new destiny for themselves: freedom. The results of the Seven Years War were united colonies and a drive for independence.
1.) The Quartering Act of 1774. 2.) The Quartering Act of 1774 was created and passed by parliament along with the other Intolerable Acts as a response to the Boston Tea Party. Great Britain was trying to punish the American Colonies and show that they had power.
The Intolerable Acts were five laws that were passed by the British Parliament against the American Colonies in 1774. They were given the name "Intolerable Acts" by American Patriots who felt they simply could not "tolerate" such unfair laws. The British passed these acts as punishment for the Boston Tea Party. The Intolerable Acts (also called the Coercive Acts) were harsh laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774. They were meant to punish the American colonists for the Boston Tea Party and other protests.
The Intolerable Acts imposed many this on colonist, for example. Boston harbor was shut till all tea was paid off. Colonist were affected by this in a big way. Many people who were not involved in the Boston Tea Party, had no way to get their goods that normally came in through the port.
Intolerable Acts The Intolerable Acts can be viewed as one of the first sparks to the flaming fire of America claiming Independence. The Intolerable Acts, also called the Coercive Acts, were a series of laws passed in 1774 in order to punish the colonies for defying their rule. Four out of five of the Intolerable Acts were directed towards Massachusetts directly and the other was directed at Quebec. All of the Acts were supposed to stop the colonies from defying England’s Rule and show the colonies that England was still in charge.
The Acts that the British made were the Massachusetts Act, Administration of Justice Act, Quartering Act, a Fifth Act, and the Quebec Act. The British made these acts to punish Boston and the colonies. “The Massachusetts Government Act, which restricted Massachusetts; democratic town meetings and turned the governor’s council into an appointed body. The Administration of Justice Act, which made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in Massachusetts. The Quartering Act, which required colonists to house and quarter British troops on demand, including in their private homes as a last resort.
The Administration of Justice Act of 1774 was one of five laws passed by the British Parliament and which was known as one of the Intolerable or Coercive Acts. The Boston Massacre of 1770, Tea Tax of 1773, and Boston Tea Party of 1773 led to this act. They boycotted many items .They formed protest groups that wrote letters to England and sent letters around the colonies letting them know what was going on. They left England to get away from British rule and they did so much more.
The purpose of these acts were, to punish the Americans after the events from the Boston Tea Party. The reason why they punished the Americans was to teach them a lesson after dumping the tea into the water. The Americans called the laws The Intolerable Acts. The so called Acts were, the Boston Port Act, Massachusetts Government Act, Quartering Act, and finally the Quebec Act.
King George was upset about what took place at the Boston tea party. King George and his minister passed the coercive acts, aimed specifically at punishing Boston for the intransigence of its citizens and at making an example of the city. The acts was known as the "Intolerable Acts" among American Whigs were uncompromising. The port of Boston was closed until the city compensated the British East India for its losses; the Massachusetts Government Act revoked the colony's charter and placed it under martial law; and the Administration of Justice Act allowed British official charged with breaking the law to be tried in British courts rather than in the colonies. The Boston Tea Party was the last straw for the British, and the Intolerable Acts
Prussia had been in an economic and constitutional crisis in the 1860s. They could not agree on a spending limit for the government’s budget. This sparked the Seven Weeks’ War between Prussia and Austria. After that war was decided, the minister-president, Otto Von Bismark, apologized for the illegal spending of money while the country was in debate. The Seven Week’s War also contributed to Prussia obtaining about two thirds of the German Territory going into 1870. Therefore, Prussia became the rising power at this time, dominating the German Empire. The growing entitlement of Prussia really came to be when Prussia clinched a leader birth in the German alliance as they faced France. Prussia defeated Austria prior to the Franco-Prussian War
The colonists later got this issued solved. This made tension higher for the revolt of the colonists because the British didn’t get their consent about it. The Quartering Act is my second least important event because the colonists didn’t give consent for housing the British and they had to feed them. The Intolerable Acts
One of the biggest problems in A Long Way Gone is war. Ishmael Beah is trying to show us the multiple issues that war can cause. Ishmael clearly shows how traumatizing a war can be to anyone. The biggest effects of the war are shown through the loss of kind and basic human interaction, the death and fighting that is happening, and the mental health issues of people who have been touched by the war.
Finally, it is important to consider the role of identity in decolonisation. As W.A. Speck points out, the Seven Years War resulted in ‘a growing conviction among the colonists that they were no longer British but Americans’ (Speck, 2008, p.23). As the colonial forces had suffered defeats, the metropole treated them as a second rate fighting force. It is most likely the haughty attitude of the British military personnel sparked the disdain of British rule. On the other hand, it could be argued the haughty attitude of the metropole forces were was justified as the colonial forces were detrimental to the reputation of the British as a military power. In the case of India, it could be argued identity of the Untouchables contributed to decolonisation.
