The American Revolution was successful because it resulted in the creation of a new nation in America. On the other hand, British failed and this resulted in the loss of a part of its empire, and the sovereign land was granted to the Americans . These were some of the immediate effects of the revolution. The economy of America experienced instability and the position of the Native Americans, African Americans and women changed in the society. The freedom of the people was granted.
In addition, two revolutions are both caused by people who stood up against absolute monarchy. Then how could American Revolution accomplished more than French revolution? This is because, unlike French, Americans fought against the Great Britain to defend, preserve and return their natural (traditional) rights, which were originally theirs before the Great Britain colonized the land. On the other hand, French tried to change their already stabled government into government based on equality, liberty and fraternity, which is not existed at first (also called abstraction). Therefore it might be not as easy as change not stabled government into stabled
The most important points were, “For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent” (National Archives). The King had the ability to control the empires he ruled, however, the colonists had no say in the creation of laws that were placed on them. The phrase “No taxation without representation” was largely used during the mid-1700’s and this problem became a major factor for the colonies who were wanting independence.
The church plays a big role on the course of Spanish history and its role in the civil war was crucial to stimulate the start of the rightist comeback. Although Azaña had enough support at the start of his government to start a solid government, many historians claim that the discontent of several social classes for his “too middle of the road” reforms lost him the support he needed to stay in
I believe that the American Revolution was revolutionary because there were many events, impacts, and effects after the war was over. When something is “Revolutionary” it means that it causes a dramatic or drastic change. In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was written all because the people needed to be heard, from document 2. What if the King listened, would there still have been a war? I do not believe so because so much time was spent trying to get the people’s point across, and it worked, after the war.
The American Revolution was a very pivotal point in the history of the United States of America. Tensions were building between the colonists of the new world and the British. The British attempted to raise taxes in the colonies causing angry resistance from the colonists. Resistance from the colonies led to violence in 1770 provoking the British Parliament to pass a series of acts to reassert imperial authority in the colonies. By June of 1776 the war was in full swing.
The Revolutionary War The Revolutionary War, also known as the American Revolution, was a significant event in American History. The rising tensions between the colonies and Britain created a desire for colonists’ independance. The revolution can be described as “...a political upheaval”(1), taking place between 1775 and 1783. In the war, the best of American character was displayed as the colonists prevailed againsts all odds. Rejecting the rule of Britain the colonists overthrew their monarchy to gain independence and founded the United States of America as a democracy.
During the 1700s America and it’s 13 colonies made a bold decision to revolt from Great Britain and become their own independent nation. This started a revolution that would forever change the way Americans would live. The War of Independence or better known as the American Revolution, consisted of the 13 colonies of America trying to gain independence from Great Britain and on July 4th 1776, America finally decided to declare their independence. Many say the revolution paved the way for many other great changes to take place, while others believed not a lot was impacted due to the revolution. This raises the question, “How Revolutionary was the American Revolution?” Revolution meaning a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in
What Caused the American Revolution The American Revolution was a battle for leadership in the American colonies. At the time, England controlled nearly all aspects, mostly the political and economic, of the colonial lives. Their purpose was to strengthen England. The colonies wanted the freedom from all of the control because they were doing fine without England. The new colonies wanted a successful economy and be their own society, but was held back for England.
Early after the Seven Years’ War Americans felt that they were apart “of a great empire.” However this sense of national pride that the Americans held would soon come to an end. After the war many assumed that the British “troops would be disbanded,” however that was not the plan of King George III. He decided to leave the troops in America, supposedly for the protection and preservation of order in the newly conquered territories. (America Past and Present, P. 108) The British government shortly after passed the Proclamation of 1763 which forbade settlement passed the Appalachian Mountains. (America Past and Present, P. 108) These two decisions irritated the colonist because having British troops in the colonies made the colonist feel that, one they were being controlled, and two being obstructed from legitimate economic development.
The articles of confederation was written right after the revolutionary war was fought, however, the AOC failed, so they had to start all over with a new document called the constitution. 9 out of 13 colonies needed to ratify the new constitution for it to take effect. When it came to organize the government after the AOC, the people were divided on how the government should handle the fears of social, political, and economic fears which motivated the 2 parties, federalist and antifederalist. The federalists supported the new constitution, while the anti federalists were opposed. The political motivation for the federalists to support the ratification was they believed that a stronger government was necessary as the AOC had failed previously
