Lastly, colonists had no representation in Parliament. Laws and taxes were passed without them having a say. Americans decided to fight for their independence in 1776 because they were being treated unjustly by Great Britain. To begin, the British passed hefty taxes in the thirteen colonies to help pay off their war debt. First, colonists were brought into British conflicts.
The outcome of this war affected America’s foreign policies, economy, and society as a whole. The first important effect the war of 1812 had was the way it changed foreign policy for America. One of the major problems before the war, was the way Britain forced neutral nations trade to go through British authorities first. Not only that but they’d take American seamen and force them into the British navy. This whole ordeal caused great upset in America and cause them to put up a bill that stated they would cut off trade with either Britain or France if the other dropped their trade restrictions.
The Patriots sparked the American Revolution, which was uncalled for according the British, and by initiating this revolution, they cut all ties with the British along with all of the benefits they received. The Patriots also blamed their rebelling on British “tyranny” but according to the actual effects and intentions of the Sugar and Stamp Acts, the British were not tyrants. Finally, the Patriots unjustly and repeatedly broke laws and acted violently. This proves the Patriots were unjust to spark the revolution thus making the American Revolution
People may ask why the americans desired independence, but that was not originally what they wanted. Nowt that time has past and the United States Of America are now an independent nation, I believe that declaring independence was a great idea because of the successful things it has helped create. The Americas was a great opportunity for many British who wanted to start a new life in the Americas. Except it was soon found to be a terrible idea after the amount of taxes they made them pay for necessary things apart of their culture. In the evidence it states, “After months of protest in the colonies, Parliament finally voted to repeal the Stamp Act in March 1766.
Second, there were many religious disputes and reformations during that period, which caused many conflicts between the protestants and the Catholics. Finally, because of the severe religious conflicts in England, it affected its economy. Their devastated economy allowed people to slowly look for opportunities elsewhere, and the Americas were one of those places.
“A doctor’s visit,” I complained to my mom. Americans despise having to drive twenty minutes to the doctor’s office, while there are patients who are desperate for medical help although their best chance is miles and miles away. Inaccessibility to health care is something that we, as well-privileged individuals, are unaware of. We have the luxury of visiting the doctor for a routine check-up, but there are people who are suffering life-threatening diseases and never get to avail the medical help they urgently need. I endured this desperation when my dad was without a job for a year.
There were hours that passed before it was done, by 6:00 p.m. when I finished it I knew that three hours per task was not sustainable and I had to change the times to forty minutes working and a ten minute break. The second task proved to be even more time consuming than the first. The sun was down outside my window, the deadline wouldn’t change. I decided that my grade was more important than my temporary mental health. I made a regrettable choice that sleep is outweighed by an assignment.
In England, not all cases had the right to a jury, and this angered the colonists and was a factor in the revolt. After America won the revolution, the right to a jury was added to the constitution in several instances so it could no longer be denied. A few of these places were: Article III and the fifth, sixth, and
George Washington brought to our attention that there is not excitement in the colonies for this fight. (Roden 141) There should be a great encouragement for us who are fighting. If we fight we will be free from Britain 's wrath. I am proud to say, I will stay and gain the bravery by not giving up on the freedom of our people. It is important to stay and serve, since we need to gain the freedom and be free from the control of the
Lastly, I believe that lying is a sin. Because of this, I have remained honest throughout my life. This is a good moral to have in general, but especially when having the desire to attend a service academy. The United States Air Force Academy honor code states “We will not lie, steal, or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does.” This would not be a difficult request, because I have developed a habit of being honest. In short, I would not only abide by the morals and values of the United States Air Force Academy, but I would enjoy them.
On July 4, 1776 the founding fathers decided to separate from England. In a document called The Declaration of Independence, the colonists stated their reasons for why they were leaving England and making their own nation. The colonists were justified to break away from England for reasons like the Intolerable Acts, unfair taxes, and tyranny among others. The French and Indian War left the British victorious. After the war the British were in a lot of debt; they needed a way to pay off the debt.
The Boston Port Act closed the Boston Harbor. The Massachusetts Government Act restricted democratic meetings of the town and the governor 's council was an appointed body. The Administration of Justice Act said that if a British Official commits a crime they are sent back to Britain to be prosecuted. The Quartering Act said that the colonists had to provide a home to British soldiers if needed. These acts were all in direct response to the Boston Tea Party and infuriated the colonists.
Claire Turner American History Test I The American Revolution The Second Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain in 1776 because they were being treated with unfair and unjust taxes and laws. The Second Continental Congress was a representation of the colonists and colonies as a whole, to Britain. In the beginning of the Congress the majority wanted to stay loyal to “The Crown,” and make peace with it. However, there were already those few who were ready to take drastic measures to relieve themselves of the British rule. One colony in particular that stands out as taking the leading role in the independence of America is Massachusetts, for they received the true wrath of Great Britain.
Also known as the intolerable acts. Passed in 1774, made to implement a vigorous policy in the american colonies. The Coercive acts were meant to reverse the trend of colonial resistance but actually provoked higher levels of resistance. This act included the Boston Port Act which shut down the port until damages from the boston
Barret saw it necessary to show that they are capable of handling themselves and do not need the extra help as they are strong enough to take care of themselves. Ison was not justified in his murder to kill, but justified in his pride being hurt. Though he dealt with it in the wrong way, he had the right
