She feels the Virginia colony built the foundation for the English territory and the formation of America (Skillin par 2). The English had been very successful travelers and maintained a successful colony back home. Kupperman feels the efforts of the English settler should be viewed for their all-around success, not just for the “failures” in colonial America (Skillin par 3). However, these “failures” lead to their achievement as Kupperman believes. Another argument Kupperman presents is, all the other English settlements replicated Jamestown’s ideals.
He had refused to let his people down and reminded them that this-their liberty-was worth fighting for. As a result Washing and his colonial army were victorious, and because of his great leadership we are free.

This life was very restricted for most of the colonists, as they had to succumb to the laws, rules, and national religion stated by the aristocrat rulers. When they saw and heard about how the Natives were worshipping which ever religion they wished and how they were not burdened by the rules of faraway leaders, they were inspired by their freedom and opportunities . Additionally, there was a clear divide between gender and class in English society at this time.

Las Casas wrote down how not all barbarians were vicious creatures, and there are barbarians who have legitimate government. As Las Casas watched the Indians, he concluded that the Indianans weren't barbaric, nor were they stupid,or dull(pg.9). They were in fact very easy to teach and they were willing to learn the Christian religion(pg.9). They were very talented in learning liberal sins and they would accept honor and repent their sins(pg.9). Las Casas saw that they were skilled in mechanical arts, and that they could produce beautiful and graceful needlework, architecture and paintings(pg.9).
The colonists felt that the proclamation was a limit to their power and authority in the colonies. In protest, the colonists took to the westward trails, clogging pathways and moving out west. More significant than the immediate effects of the Proclamation of 1763 was what the Proclamation signified. It was the initial sign that England was starting to take an interest in the American colonies again, marking the end of salutary neglect. With this legislation, several decades of virtual independence in the colonies was over and the British began to assert their authority over their colonies.

Declaratory Act The British colonies and America were bristling under the rule of Britain. They thought the rules and regulations of their government were unfair and left little behind to develop the respective countries.

As such, many fought against such Acts, as they did the Stamp Act, which was eventually overturned.
The British in the 1700s controlled a massive empire all around the world and they knew how to deal with a rebellion, but they had never had a rebellion where former British residents were the rebels. The colonists had a very extreme reaction to a handful of simple taxes the British put in place that were only supposed to help finance the previous wars in North America, most notably the French and Indian War. The British reacted very reasonably against the colonial tax resistance, and the colonists only worsened the situation as they were overreacting about very small taxes. After the British attempted to pass taxes to help finance the recent wars with France, the colonists began on their rampage against any kind of British tax on the goods they bought.
The Boston Tea Party was an important historical event that occurred due to tensions over authority between the British and American colonists that led up to the Revolutionary War, which enabled the Americans living in the colonies to gain independence from England once and for all. This revolutionary event was an effort by Bostonians to get England to understand the colonists did not want to be taxed by the English parliament anymore without having to get violent. The Boston Tea Party was not an act of terrorism, it was simply a revolutionary rebellion against the Tea Act enforced by England’s parliament. The only “violent” act the people of Boston did was dump the British tea into the Boston harbor. The Bostonians did not even use their weapons used to break the crates of the tea to harm any of the other people residing in Boston.

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.
