The Stamp was given to all americans and it was a tax on everything paper. Playing cards were taxed, Ship’s papers, legal documents, licenses, and newspapers(Document 6). This was the first stepping stone for revolution. After the Stamp Act was introduced the imports from Britain when down by almost one million pounds until 1776 when it started to increase again.

1. Using your British Colonial Tension chart and timeline, discuss the progression of the tensions between the American colonists and Britain which led to the American revolution-which of these events was the most significant in creating a sense of American identity by the time the colonists declared their independence in 1776? Answer: There were a bunch of events that led to the American Revolution. Officials opposing the Stamp Act met at the Stamp Act Congress in 1765 and discussed the Stamp Act and decided to make the Nonimportation Agreement. This caused lots of chaos overseas back in Britain.
The Revolutionary War The American Revolution was a period of anxiety and conflict between Great Britain and the American colonists. The fight for independence began as a riotous battle occurred at Lexington and Concord, located in Massachusetts. Surprisingly, the American colonists were prosperous in many of the battles during the time of war. The war had lasted for eight years, and officially ended when a treaty was signed by Great Britain. In turn, the Americans earned independence and a lot of rights that other countries did not have.
There is a fictional country of Andromeda with 5 states a total population of 20,000. The 5 states are Apus with a population of 11,123, Libra with a population of 879, Draco with a population of 3518, Cephus with a population of 1563, and Orion with a population of 2917. The country wants 25 representatives to be chosen from each state. First the standard divisor is calculated. The total population of 20,000 is divided by the number of people to apportion, which are 25.
After the recent readings for Zinn’s book, I began to do some research on the Indians helping the British during the Revolutionary War. I Google “Roles of Indians during the Revolutionary War,” and I sound a very interesting site that backed up Zinn’s statement. Many of the Indians, especially the Shawnee, Creeks and the powerful Cherokee and Iroquois helped the British in the American Revolution. The British promised Indians more than their freedom, they also promised to stop settlement on their land. However, there are some Indians that fought for America as well, those tribes were most involved with people who would become Americans.
The original 13 colonies of the United States were formed in 1732. Each of these had local governments and their populations grew quickly throughout the mid-1700s. However during this time tensions between the American colonies and the British government began to arise as the American colonists were subject to British taxation but had no representation in the British Parliament. These tensions eventually led to theAmerican Revolution which was fought from 1775-1781. On July 4, 1776, the colonies adopted the Declaration of Independenceand following the American victory over the British in the war, the U.S. was recognized as independent of England.
2,000 men were killed and 58 wounded or missing. On January 8, 1815, American leader General Andrew Jackson led the Americans and he had 5,000 men. Of the 5,000 men Jackson had, there was more than 2,000 more on the British side. Major-General Edward Pakenham led 7,500 soldiers in the battle. Surprisingly, the Americans won the battle.
The United States mustered at least 2.1 million men, about half of its 1860 military-age population. More than 180,000 African American men served in United States Army units and another 20,000 in the Navy. Apart from its much larger population, the United States held decided advantages in industrial capacity, commercial interests, and financial infrastructure. The United States sought to compel the seceded states to abandon their hopes to found a new nation. Military fortunes ebbed and flowed for more than three years before United States forces gained a decisive advantage.
One major similarity, besides the fact that both colonies were from England, is that both colonies had a very large number of deaths after winter passed. England sent 100 men and boys to establish jamestown colony. By the end of the first winter, around 40 members of jamestown still stood. In total, 70% of settlers would die in Jamestown. By the end of the first winter in Plymouth colony, 50% of the settlers died.
From seeing this movie you might think that they are referring to what happened with Andrew Jackson and the state government back in the early 1830’s. According to History.com, Both Andrew Jackson and the State government forced nearly 125,000 of Native Americas out of their
Which was founded by people of the colony of Virginia. The House of Burgesses grew by the Mayflower Compact of 1620. Which states “…combine our selves together into a civil body politic, for our better ordering and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid;…” the mayflower compact gave a broader meaning of self- government and constitution because that is what is was written for. The mayflower compact was the character of government found in the New England colonies. Adult males only contracted the mayflower compact because they were the ones that were picked to go on the trip and got to take their families, if they had any, along with them.
Before the American Revolution, the colonists still considered themselves to be English and followed British rule. However, the American revolution allowed them to separate themselves from British rule and form their own separate power. This separate power unified the colonists who now shared the same political, religious, cultural, racial, historical, linguistic, and ideological views which were different from their views under British rule. They were beginning to pave the way to becoming "Americans" rather than English. During the American Revolution, slaves were recruited by both the British and the colonists to fight for each side 's cause.
