When the French chamber of deputies began to refuse the payments in which were owed to the united nation, Jackson became infuriated. In the midst of Jackson’s
Americans initially favored neutrality, but events like the sinking of the Lusitania and the Zimmermann telegram provoked the U.S. to join the war in support of the Allies (Shi and Tindall 754-757). Less obvious factors, such as nationalism, imperialism, and business opportunity, also contributed to the war. The war ended in 1918 after immense bloodshed, but President Wilson failed to get the Treaty of Versailles ratified by the Senate (Shi and Tindall 773). As a result of the war, Europe was significantly weakened, harsh punishments were imposed on Germany that later led to WWII, and America emerged with a strong economy as a dominant world power (Shi and Tindall
Those same Virginians, as tobacco planters and slave-owners, were also deeply upset by imperial trade policy The governments response’s to the burgesses petitions would affect the allegiance to Britain by men like Jefferson and Washington. ‘What worried the states men in the mother country was the likelihood that, if Virginians had occupied Kentucky, Indians would attack them, and the British might have to come and rescue at great cost to the imperial treasury” (5) The 1758 Treaty of Easton, which gave the Indians all the land west of the Appalachian, did not help their cause. Holton alludes to many other instances where the colonists wanted to expand but was consistently overlooked by the imperial government. The Indians caused the British to fear another war. Essentially, Holton makes it seem like the British were more on the side of the Indians then they were for their own colonists.

Thomas Jefferson’s opinion of how the national government should be run, changed quite a bit over the course of his presidency. He started it off as a strict constructionist as he opposed the excise laws and his opposition to the Alien and Sedition acts. At some point he began to transform into a loose constructionist when he bought the louisiana purchase and he improved our navy to help fight the Barbary war. Somewhere during his presidency his views changed and it was most likely before he bought the Louisiana territory. Before Jefferson entered the presidential office he was a states rights supporter and when the tax on whiskey was placed he opposed it, saying “The first error was to admit it by the Constitution.” (Doc A).
The doctrine didn’t make great change at it’s time but was revived during Polk’s presidency and eventually became an important national principle. The War of 1812 was a result of the events that occurred during Britain’s conflicts with France. America declared itself a sovereign nation during the conflicts between Britain and France but the British still punished the nation through the Orders in Council and impressment. The practice of impressment combined with American embargo policies pushed America to declare war on Britain in 1812 because Britain showed no respect for America’s sovereignty and proved that it wouldn’t change it’s restrictive trading policies despite America’s peaceful attempts. America declared war on Britain in 1812 largely because of Britain’s practice of impressment.
During the beginning of the second World War, England was struggling to initiate combat. Its government was suffering from inactivity, frustration was building against Prime Minister Chamberlain’s Conservative government, and anxiety about future attacks from the Germans loomed behind the backs of the press and the public. With Chamberlain’s resignation following the Norway Debate, as well as a bitter motion of no confidence from Parliament, Churchill succeeded the position, and needed to act decisively to unite Parliament and pilot the war effort. Gesturing for the House to declare its confidence in the new government, Churchill garnered public support by methodically describing actions taken by the new regime to improve their efforts, by appealing to the British values for Liberty against the forces of tyranny, and by emboldening the new government with strengthened, somber, and firm resolution to actively act against the Axis Powers. Ultimately, using rhetorical appeals of pathos and ethos, as well as some logos, Churchill effectively reaffirms the public and the House in his Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat Speech on May 13, 1940, allowing him to set the stage for his administration, and effectively begin the war against Germany with the all-party wartime coalition government to back him.
The Cold War caused people to question the United States’ government’s reliability and strength, which negatively affected America’s domestic affairs and foreign policies. Citizens lost respect and trust in the government and other civilians, due to several threats within the country and worldwide. People were left questioning their rights and safety due to the second Red Scare, which threatened the coming of power of communism within America. Various forms of propaganda advertised fears, causing panic to spread throughout the country. Russia’s gain of power throughout Eurasia showed off the USSR’s strength and abilities, threatening the Western Powers.
TRU: The main reason Marshall Aid has been brought into action is that Europe is in need of support and needs to rebuild due to it being ruined by the events of World War 2. We offered Europe $13 Billion dollars and the resources needed to jumpstart the dying economy and restore Europe back to its former glory. The plan was gladly accepted by most; however the offer was rejected by the USSR and its “allies”. INT: And what do you think of Eastern Europe refusing Marshall
Fascism under Mussolini and Nazism under Hitler started to rise in Europe during the interwar periods. Both totalitarian governments brought great impact to their nations and international peace, which eventually led to the outbreak of WWII. The German economy suffered severe setbacks after the end of World War I, partly because of reparations payments required under the 1919 Treaty of Versailles. The government printed money to make the payments and to repay the country's war debt; the resulting hyperinflation led to inflated prices for consumer goods, economic chaos, and food riots. When the government failed to make the reparations payments in January 1923, French troops occupied German industrial areas along the Ruhr.
(Doc 2) Still shaken by the events of World War II, where German leader Adolf Hitler invaded France and much of Europe for land power, de Gaulle was fearful that a Western European union with German leadership would undo the resolutions of the war. France, having been allied with Britain in the previous wars against Germany, wanted to renew this alliance in the form of a European Union under French and British leadership. However after the formation of the European Economic Community, an organization promoting economic integration among France, West Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, 21 years later, Charles de Gaulle took a different stance on leadership in Europe. (Doc 8) Having been rejected by Britain in the earliest unification attempts, de Gaulle became supportive of a sans-Britain Community. De Gaulle’s view, removed from the immediacy of French-German conflict, started agreeing with the idea of a French and German led Community, united by similar economies and therefore similar interests.
Some of the things that happened soon after they passed the Stamp Act was colonial resistance. Colonists did not want to be taxed on a war they didn 't even fight in or have a say in. The war was France and Britain fighting over who got control over North America. All the colonists were doing was living there and the war did not involve them. Also, violators of the Stamp Act could be tried and convicted without juries in the vice-admiralty courts.
Naval Reserve. Upon his difficulty working with his boss, Josephus Daniels, who was not interested in supporting large naval force, he decided to quit. Roosevelt then decided to run for the U.S. Senate seat for New York in 1914. His plan was not fortunate from the start and he lacked White House support. President Woodrow Wilson couldn’t support FDR any longer, because he needed the Democratic Political machine to get his social reforms passed and ensure his reelection.
Stamp act forced the Americas to defy the laws made by the British parliament. As a result of this act, the respect of Americans towards British parliament reduced to great extend. The Americas begins think of alternative to British parliament. Till 1965, America was divided among various small states. There was no coordination between these states.
However, by 1954, the French armed forces proved that they were incompetent and ill-equipped, even with American aid, to deter the insurgency of the communist Viet Minh; after its resounding defeat at Dien Bien Phu, France abandon its attempt to regain control of the country. This left the United States and another administration to deal with the fallout. President Eisenhower continued with America’s Cold War ideology of containment in Vietnam; along with economic aid, he increased the United States’ commitment to include military “advisers” (Faragher, et. al, pg. 717).
