The English monarchy does not care about the people: America is a business investment and it will be treated as such. A similar sentiment from England 's perspective is expressed in "You 'll Be Back" when King George sings, "The price of

Colonists during the 1700’s were controlled by England without representation in Parliament. King George III passed multiple acts in order to pay debts from the French and Indian War. There were laws that placed taxes on daily items and required stamps on any legal documents in the American colonies. England felt they could tax their colonies and create a monopoly on trade, however, the colonists felt this violated the rights they had. In order to gain rights, the colonies wanted to be recognized as independent.
The Sugar, Stamp, and Townshend Acts all say that England needs to tax the colonies so he can protect them. I found three examples of this. First, the Sugar Act said, “...it is just and necessary, that a revenue be raised, in your majesty 's said dominions in America, for defraying the expenses of defending, protecting, and securing the same…” That meant that England needed money to protect America. Second, the Stamp Act said, “...toward defraying the expenses of defending, protecting, and securing, the British colonies and plantations in America: and whereas it is just and necessary, that provisions be made for raising a further revenue within your Majesty’s dominions in America…”
The first representative legislative assembly in America convened in Jamestown’s Church at the end of July 1619, and it underlined that the colonists would have some say in running their own affairs. The Virginia colonists settled in the territory of the Powhatan Indians; the unstable relationship had already begun. Vast differences in culture, philosophies, and the English desire for dominance because they saw the Natives as savages, were obstacles too great to overcome.
Another reason the French and Indian war helped start the oncoming American Revolution was all of the boycotts as a result of Britain trying to increase its revenue from the colonists and crawl out of debt. The boycotts of British products - hurting the British mercantile system- were much more effective after the French and Indian War and the fact that the French lost the war made France more interested in helping the colonists in the American Revolution (Brinkley, 112-113). The money France offered proved to be a key piece to the colonies gaining their independence from Britain. Without the French and Indian war it’s doubtful the American Revolution would ever have
1. Lord Baltimore Lord Baltimore was the first of the English elites who received a proprietary colony from Charles I to populate, administrate, and protect. The king at the time was rewarding noblemen shares of the Virginia Company’s surrendered territories to create English colonies. Baltimore acquired his portion in 1632, with alleviation from royal taxation, the authority to employ judges, and the privilege of assembling a resident nobility. Baltimore intended the colony he named Maryland to be a sanctuary for England’s small population of victimized Catholics.
The Spanish colonies and the New England colonies were different in the resources the colonies collected in order to achieve economic success. The main source of economic gain in Central and South America was gold and silver because there was a plentiful amount of the resources in the Americas. As time went on and the gold and silver resources depleted, the Spanish turned to sugar plantations, which are large scale farms. New England made their money by trading away raw materials, such as timber, furs, and textiles like wool and cotton. Later New England made a large portion of their money from fishing.
When the new world was discovered, everyone wanted the land. Settlers crossed the Atlantic for different reasons, these reasons were why they settled. Their government took different approaches to their colonizing efforts. France and Spain had dictatorial kings whose rule was absolute, and the English came from England. The different reasons they came are, sources of colonial population, economic, and relations with the Native Americans.
Buy they did not support the Puritans Calvinist doctrines. 2. Navigational Act- In 1560 the English government tried to keep the colonists trade in the English hands, along with manufacturing and foreign trade. By keeping control of the trade it increased their economic benefits.
I. Recolonization of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick A. The thirteen colonies wanted Nova Scotia to become the fourteenth colony because of their close relationships and trading. B. Following the deportation of thousands of Acadians, Governor Charles Lawrence, of Nova Scotia, sent a proclamation throughout all of British North America to settle Acadian farmlands in 1756. He promised the English settlers paid transportation and land grants of forty hectares and twenty more hectares for each additional person.
But, bigger problems were arising with time. For example, “Taxation without Representation,” that was one of the main reasons why the colonists rebelled against the British monarchy. Also, after the French and Indian War, the British needed revenue to pay for the cost of the war debts and to finance defense in North
What defines the word “British” and who are the people who consider themselves to be “British”? These are the questions that arise when one thinks about exactly how “British” the colonies of “British North America” were. In essence, when does North America take on the British identity? It can be posited that the British identity of North America came to be and was most apparent after the Seven Years’ War when Canada was ceded by France to Britain in 1763.
The American Revolutionary war for Independence was also very important for America. It was the Thirteen North American colonies fighting for independence. in arm conflict against Great Britain who had dominant colonial power over North America.
