During the Colonial Era (1492-1763), colonists were justified in waging war against Great Britain; due to the inequitable Stamp Act, the insufferable British oppression, and the perceived tyranny of King George III, the king of Great Britain, however, the colonists were unjustified in some of their actions. In Colonial America, colonists were justified in waging war against Great Britain, because the Stamp Act was unfair and viewed as punishment. Because of the war, Britain had no other choice but to tax the colonists to pay for the debt. For example, according to document 2, the author states that the act was not only for trade but for “the single purpose of levying money.”
The colonists were mistreated from the start the British forced them to pay their war debts basically and controlled them harshly this caused the colonists to rise up and take back power. These events eventually led to the American Revolution and colonists
This congress was made up of very influential men including George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin. A committee was formed among the continental congress to draft the Declaration of Independence. At this time, Thomas Jefferson was chosen as the primary author as his style of writing was more superior than those of his peers. As the author, he expressed the grievances the British had inflicted upon the American colonists. These grievances included cutting off their trade with many other parts of the world and depriving them of trial by jury.
During that presidency, he was most well known for participating in the war of 1812. When the British were impressing the American sailors, Madison helped pass the embargo act but when that did not help, He tried to talk to the British which a man named John Randolph said that talking to the French was a affective as "a shilling pamphlet hurled against eight hundred ships of war.” So talking did not help the situation so congress met to decide what to do. In Congress, a small group of the members called the war hawks tried to convince the members to go to war. This group slowly had an effect on the rest of the congress and so congress declared war on Britain.
Bringing forth the twenty seven amendments protecting our rights against any possible corruption in the government. The British had abused it 's power and had put the US citizens. Therefore causing the proposition of the Declaration. For example, The King had been depriving the people of a fair trial by jury. “For depriving us, in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury”(Declaration) Continuing on, He forced them to provide housing for the soldiers he sent over to America.
The Americans were inspired by George III and his famous quote that he said to the New England colonies in November 1774 “blows must decide whether they are to be subject to this country or independent.’ With both sides more willing to fight than to retreat, war became inevitable. The violence at the Boston forced the ministry to retaliate with its show of force. The Coercive Acts, like the decision to ship dutied tea to America, only drove the colonies closer together in their determination to resist the mother country. Edification to Americans on the subject of the Boston Tea party.
Thomas Paine wrote a series of articles known collectively as "The Crisis" to support his argument for independence from England during the Revolutionary War. Thomas Paine 's reasoning for writing this collection of articles is rather sound. The call to arms in this document calls “tens of thousands” to arms to battle Great Britain and their unfair rule over their country. Paine was justified in his writing, the unfair rule of the British government did need to be “called out” sort of speak.
“the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not”(Henry) Fueled by their utter disdain toward the British house the colonist are getting the idea. For too long they have laid on the floor and watched as the enemy took over their homes. Patrick henry gained the trust of over a thousand colonists with a speech that led these people to a war, there is no preventing conflict even those who try to ignore their problems will only amplify if they aren't dealt with in time.
Jefferson was determined to approach each political obstacle sensibly, as demonstrated by the Tripolitan War, and truly believed that the future of the American society depended on the integrity of the common people. Due to the emerging threat of the Napoleonic Wars and the rise of a bitter Aaron Burr, Jefferson experienced a much more difficult second term in office, and as a result saw a slight shift in the concepts of his political philosophy. Once a steadfast supporter of a strict interpretation of the Constitution, Jefferson’s second term saw a slightly more liberal approach to the analysis regarding the Constitution, as shown by his fury regarding the trial of villain Aaron
Unfortunately, though, the road to independence possessed multiple obstacles which led Britain to assume victory early on. Only later into the war did the
American patriots support Patrick Henry in arming themselves and going to war to gain independence; hence, violence will take over the whole colonies and turn the place into a war zone. On the other hand, not only the colonists, but the American patriots as well should act more civilized and gain their independence through a more rational and peaceful agreement. Maybe a Revolutionary war is what will satisfy the colonists’ hearts. After several years of being
The British colonized a land, what is now called the United States of America, back in 1607. They ruled over the natives for another century before the Native Americans realized that they wanted to be treated differently. They wanted freedom and so they revolted. The factors that contributed to the eventual separation of the colonists from the British were the colonists’ dissatisfaction with the acts imposed by the British after the French and Indian war, the battles fought between the colonists and the British, and the difference in the political wants of the colonists. After the British won the French and Indian war, they had to impose certain acts in order to make up for the financial losses in the war.

After Thomas Paine printed his Common Sense pamphlet that helped begin the war, he knew that he would have to try to write another pamphlet when General George Washington fled from New York after a hammering defeat from the British. So he came out with his next incredible piece of literary art which was called The American Crisis. Thomas Paine achieved exactly what he aimed for by writing that pamphlet. George Washington had it read to all of his troops in an attempt to try to boost his men 's moral before hosting an attack against enemy Hessians. When Washington and his men crossed the Delaware with their renewed moral, they not only beat the near legendary Hessians but also continued on and beat General Earl Cornwallis at the Battle of Princeton.
The Movement Begins If America did not have Thomas Paine where would we be? It was a brutal fight against the British when Thomas Paine wrote his pamphlets “ Crisis No. 1”. They needed a push to get inspiration to start understanding more about the fight for their independence in which he gave that to the colonist. Thomas Paine use of pathos was the best persuasive technique to persuade the colonist.
