Since there was debt because of the war, the economy was already very bad in Britain – therefore they taxed the colonies. When the colonies started boycotting British products and threatened to stop trading with them all together, it was successful because Britain’s economy wasn’t strong enough to handle those things. The merchants in Britain couldn’t afford to have trade with America end. If the British merchants were hurt, this would thus hurt The economy as a whole in Britain. In later decades, in the War of 1812, America would try to stop trade with Britain again using a method called embargo, which would not be effective because they did not have the debt that the War had caused.
Still upset about the rough treatment, Monroe ran against Madison for President in 1808. He lost, but was asked to become secretary of state (history.com). All of the hard feelings were gone and the three men became colleagues again. During the War of 1812, Monroe assisted Madison and was promoted to secretary of war. The previous owner, John Armstrong, resigned because of the burning of Washington D.C.
The Belgians saw that the natives were falling victim to these common diseases and believed the natives inferior to their European breeding. Unfortunately, sleeping sickness and malaria ran rampant in the Congo due to colonization and relocation. People who had never encountered a disease spreading parasite quickly succumbed to the disease. La Force Republique attempted to aid the “savages” by building a school, but it had to be shut down, since each year “100 out of the 1000 school children were dying of sleeping sickness” (World Health Organization par. 2).
Prior to Napoleon's reign as emperor, France had been through the rein of terror and the French Revolution. King Louis the Sixteenth and his wife Marie Antoinette had put France in major debt and took no responsibility for it. He was killed by the guillotine. Robespierre took control after his death and caused more problems for France and killed anyone who was not passionate enough about his ruling. He too was killed by the guillotine.
The Americans condemned the British Empire restricting their trade and taking sailors to serve on the British side. Lastly, the United States was avid to prove their independence from the British Empire. Before 1812, Indiana’s territorial governor William Henry Harrison led U.S. troops to victory in the Battle of Tippecanoe. Consequently, this defeat convinced many Indians that they needed British support to prevent American settlers moving them further from their land. Pressure was mounting on the President at that time John Madison.
News of the surrender convinced France to enter the war on the side of the Americans. Once again, Arnold had brought his country a step closer to independence. However, Gates downplayed Arnold’s contributions in his official reports and claimed most of the credit for himself. Meanwhile, Arnold seriously wounded the same leg he had injured at Quebec in the battle. Rendered temporarily incapable of a field command, he accepted the position of military governor of Philadelphia in 1778.
During the process Maximum government law was created, allowing higher taxes on the rich, social reform, and free education. These acts created violent uprisings that were later broken up during the reign of terror led by Robespierre. Due to the great victory of the army the new reforms seemed pointless and the man who sponsored them Robespierre was overthrown and sentenced to death by execution and the Maximum government law was dissolved. In the southeast and also the west the national convention was dispersed when royalists tried to seize power in Paris, these royalists were destroyed by Napoleon Bonaparte the young French General. The constant struggle between the war and different risings of political powers and assemblies also revolutionaries and counterrevolutionaries led to the complete dissolve of the republic and the 18
Never before had he suffered such a devastating loss. Following the loss, and Napoleon’s rejection of a peace treaty; the French people turned on Napoleon. Soon he was exiled to the island of Elba. A year later, he rose again and regained control of France for one-hundred days. Finally, he faced his ultimate demise, the Battle of Waterloo.
When France and Britain went to war in 1793, the Americans feared that the turmoil and violence would destroy the young American republic. Monroe learned that Napoleon Bonaparte wanted to sell the entire Louisiana territory to present day Canada. He acted quickly and signed the Louisiana purchase agreement before any other nation in order to double the size of the United States. It was the right decision at the right time. Meanwhile, French armies were sent into Spain to help King Ferdinand suppress the liberal movements while Austria conquered Naples and Piedmont.
The second aim was that they wanted to change the monarchy into a republic or a democracy. Unfortunately they were not able to create a monarchy, but it ended with the dictatorship of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Glencoe World History textbook states, “ …The National Convention’s first major step on September 21 was to abolish the monarchy and establish a republic…” This shows how they were going on the right track and that this aim was about to be a success and if this aim would have succeeded then this revolution could have been one of the most successful revolutions, but unfortunately the dictator Napoleon comes in and takes control. History.com states, “After seizing political power in France in a 1799 coup d’état, Napoleon crowned himself emperor in 1804.”
The Louisiana purchase affected the United States by doubling its size. In Jefferson’s opinion, the westward expansion was the right path towards the nation’s health. Since there was a reasonable population, the need to provide enough land for the population was necessary. In order to get more land, the west expansion must continue. This expansion encouraged the Manifest Destiny and spread of christianity.
When the French realized that the Americans were enemies with the British, France took advantage of that and became allies with the Americans. The help of France was one of the biggest reasons that the Americans won. Without their help, America wouldn’t even have gotten close to winning. George Washington pretended that he and his army were going to attack New York. The British were tricked.
After the German’s success at the Battle of Mons they pushed on to Paris, but General von Moltke changed his mind at last minute (perhaps for fear of leaving behind the unreliable supply chain); instead of attacking Paris from the West as previously planned, the army would only attack from the North, so as to travel fewer miles. This was the beginning of the downfall of the Schlieffen plan that might have otherwise worked, and therefore a step towards the war not being over by Christmas. The Battle of the Marne on the 6th September occurred when the French alongside the BEF furiously defended their capital city and pushed the Germans back to the river Aisne- the Schlieffen plan was foiled and Paris would not be captured within 40
The argument that the British could not realistically deploy more naval assets to America while simultaneously worrying about an attack on their homeland is understandable. Once the French and Americans signed an alliance treaty in 1778, it marked a significant milestone in history. “For the first time in the eighteenth century, Great Britain found itself diplomatically isolated; at one point in 1779 it was even threatened with French invasion.” Such isolation forced the British to make preparations to protect themselves from French threats. “The British government was therefore obliged to prepare for a much broader conflict unaided by European allies who might have compelled the French to commit resources to defending their position on the Continent.” Cementing Great Britain’s concerns in 1779, France and Spain also signed a treaty and came to be known the Bourbon Powers. As further evidence to support the counter argument, “the British government even considered a complete withdrawal from the
