will stop trading with their enemy. Great Britain agreed to the deal, but then Madison cut off all trade with them due to their secret plans to continue seizing American ships after the deal. Later, Harrison led a militia force to defeat Indians due to their conflicts with them when settlers moved onto the Ohio and Mississippi valleys and pushed Indians off their lands. Later, Americans found out that the Indians were armed with British guns. In order to make northwestern frontier safe for settlers, the U.S. needed to drive the British out of Canada so Canada could be added to the U.S. Congress declared war on Great Britain because of the losses at sea, national pride, and a desire to make the frontier safe for settlement.

Many colonists were throwing stones through windows and destroying furniture(“The Stamp Act”). Colonists also burned the stamps once they arrived, and attacked the house of Lieutenant Governor Thomas Hutchinson. Because the Stamp Act affected all colonial residents, not only was it violent but for the first time the colonists proved their economic power by boycotting British goods and resisting paying their debts. Adams was cautious with his involvement in the Stamp Act. He was worried it would damage his reputation.
The first reason the American revolution was about civil liberties was the cancellation of self-government. To punish angry colonists, the British made the Massachusetts government act which annulled all colonial power in American government. This includes even taking away power at own meetings. (Doc 6)
While the Stamp Act Congress peacefully tried to negotiate the repeal of the Stamp Act, the colonists took matters into their own hands. Many colonists joined by boycotting British goods, however, some took a much more violent approach. Colonists formed secret societies protesting British rule, most famously the Sons Of Liberty who called for American independence. These groups attacked in mobs by violently parading through the streets, burning British paper, ransacking some British custom official’s homes, and even tarring and feathering some of the custom officials. This caused many custom officials to resign from their position for fear of their

Why has this nation always declared war? America when will you declare war on racism? When will a leader be able to enforce that we are not the lesser people because of our skin color, without him/her being assassinated for taking a stand against what is morally and humanely right? Can we as a country say forget 9/11 get over it already, forget the Boston Bombings can we stop talking about it? The minute we reflect on what our ancestors went through just to be comfortable in this land that we was forced to live in and build, we are told to get over
