The French and Indian War was important to the American Revolution because the debt from the war was the reason that Parliament started taxing the colonists. Also, the French and Indian War made Britain very weak, making the colonists’ actions work a whole lot better. Since France was not happy with the outcome of their war with Britain this was a main reasons for France’s interest in helping the now Americans throughout the Revolutionary War, which was very important to the colonies’ victory.
The British government was not looking for the best of the people. They were only thinking about what they wanted; the government was not interested in what the people wanted so they decided to make decisions on their own, which resulted in changes that form the United States today. Because of this, they were justified in rebelling and declaring independence.

The American Revolution was one of the most important wars that was fought in the history of the United States. The Patriots and the British had two different views on how things should be run in America. Many people have different opinions on why, where and how the war was started. There were a few key battles that helped to influence the outcome of the war. The outcome of the American Revolutionary War influenced the United States way of Freedom and the way the American people live today.
In 1689, the British and the French entered a long period of frequent warfare known as the Second One Hundred Years’ War. The British government had to start directing its focus towards the French rather than its colonies in the New World. Due to the constant warfare, the British did not enforce the Navigation Acts that regulated and controlled trade going to and from the colonies. This sort of political and economic strategy was called salutary neglect. The Americans enjoyed minimal interference in their trading and the American economy grew and developed under this salutary neglect. However, after the French and Indian war ended in 1763, the British government was severely in debt. It started to enforce the Navigation Acts and imposed
After the French and Indian War, the British government needed money to pay for the cost of protecting the colonists from the French and Indians. The British government approved several taxes including the Stamp and Tea Acts to help pay for the costs of the war. The colonists were expected to pay these taxes.
One time the British passed a law that allowed the british soldiers to forcefully live in the colonists’ home! The colonies started out to benefit Great Britain, but after one war and lots of laws, the colonies were going to be part of a revolution. What was the American Revolution about? Economic Rights or Civil Liberties? On one hand the British instilled unfair regulations on trade and goods. On the other hand the British deprived the colonists of even the most basic of rights. The American Revolution was more about Civil Liberties because there are three main arguments that support it: Taxation without Representation, the Quartering Act, and the Intolerable (Coercive) Acts. These actions that the British did justified the colonists’ revolution.
The French and Indian War left England with a debt of £130,000,000. To help pay off the debt Britain set up taxes, to collect money, on frequently used products by the colonists. The Molasses Act put a six pence tax on every gallon of molasses. The colonists thought this was a lot of money to pay so they did everything to avoid it. This act was not really enforced and the colonists did not really obey this act. Britain needed a way to fix this. They came up with the Sugar Act, a set of taxes to help Britain raise money. Taxes were not a new thing for the colonists, but these new taxes caused big issues.
John Wilkes Booth was a well-known actor of his time, a supporter of slavery and the southern Confederacy during the Civil War, as well as an assassin who carried out the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln on April 14th, 1865. He has had a pretty big impact on history which holds importance’s to how history played out due to his actions. It was because of his strong beliefs of slavery at the time that led to most of his actions at the time. This was a time of confusion among most as to the rights and wrongs of slavery and the place of black people in the United States otherwise. It was Booth’s belief that African Americans were lucky to be in the United States, even if it was in bondage because they didn’t really belong here any other
Stonewall Jackson had a very influential role in the Civil War battle and will be forever remembered. He was a very smart man and did a lot to fight for his home state Virginia. He went off to join the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He had a very difficult childhood and yet he made it to this school and graduated.

Both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass are well-known for their achievements that changed many American’s lives. Not only were they abolitionists but they were people who represented freedom and liberty. Abraham Lincoln, president during the Civil War, is an example of a true hero that showed heroism. He has risked and sacrificed his lives to accomplish what he believed was right. Unlike others, Abraham wasn’t only fighting for himself. This is showed when Dr. Gurley says :“Not for himself only, not for us only, but for all people in all their coming generations” (SB pg. 68). Impacting our society today, he has changed our world and the way we look at slavery. Even though he died, people, up to this day, still remember his courageous actions.
With enemy troops in South Carolina and Virginia, the outlook for the Continental Army was bleak until the Battle of Cowpens. This was an important turning point for the Americans in the Revolutionary War. The purpose of this essay is to prove that Brigadier General Daniel Morgan led the American Continental Army to success, by driving the operations process. Without his understanding of mission command, it would have been difficult to secure the victory at Cowpens. Though there are people that would argue BG Morgan’s victory at the Battle of Cowpens was a fluke, I will prove BG Morgan used the commanders activities of “lead, understand, visualize, describe.” BG Morgan understood the operational variables military and physical terrain. He
