The American Declaration of Independence was drafted in 1776 by Thomas Jefferson and proclaimed, when the American Revolutionary War had already started a year ago in 1775. The Vietnamese Declaration of Independence was written by Ho Chi Minh in 1945 and announced to the public in Ba Dinh Square , after which a period of struggle occurred between the Vietminh and the French forces. I would like to put forth my argument that both primary sources showed that the two independent movements were responses to the unfair treatment and policies imposed on the colonies by their colonial masters, thereby culminating in a declaration of ambition, desire and action, to form and preserve their new independent regimes. Both sources broadcasted the misdeeds and mistakes, which the colonial masters had committed against the colonists, to the world. The American Declaration provided a long list of grievances the colonists had against the British government, which amounted to over 60 percent of the document.
During the Revolutionary War the colonist were fighting for their freedom from the British Empire. In their quest for freedom, they realized that they would need international allies to win the war. With France losing the French and Indian War against England, the colonial government looked to France to form this bond. Benjamin Franklin composes the Treaty of Alliance, which would become the first military treaty for the new nation. The Treaty of Alliance 1778 had a great impact on the outcome of the American Revolution, and helped introduce the United States of America as an independent country.
The Battle of Yorktown was fought at the city of Yorktown in the months of September and October in 1776. The Reason why the armies where their was because the British General Lord Charles Cornwallis departed from St. Domingue to Chesapeake Bay and he chose to make Yorktown his base. This was one of the final battles in the war for the colonies to gain independence. George Washington realises that this is the perfect opportunity to take action. He orders 5,000 troops to block Cornwallis ' escape by land while the French naval fleet will block Britain 's escape by sea.
In The Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson calls for the independence of the thirteen colonies who were under the British rule. While the thirteen colonies where under the British rule there was many wrong doings done to them by King George III. Therefore, the thirteen colonies wanted to become independent from the British rule.Jefferson’s purpose is to justify the act the colonies took in declaring themselves independent from the British rule to the foreign nations. He is able to achieve this purpose through the use of ethos and logos. At the beginning of the Declaration of Independence Jefferson uses ethos to establish his credibility for his argument.
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.
In 1776, Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, which was officially adopted and proclaimed by Congress on July 4. This marked America 's independence from Britain 's tyranny, hence, the famous event of the Fourth of July that is practiced in the United States today. The American Revolution was a bloody, political war that resulted in the colonists’ freedom against Britain 's rein, however, the war was not for independence but for consolidation. Undeniably, the colonists ' thirst for independence sprouted from their disconnection and dispute with Britain. However, their main objective was to unite the colonies by resolving social inequality and developing a common enemy.
After the Revolutionary War, the Founding Fathers began to develop the country. This Founding Fathers were at first lost and confused at where they should go after the war because the United States Constitution did not leave them an outline that could be followed. In the end, through various attempts and risky tries the country finally began to continue onto the correct pathway. However, the peace and tranquility did not last long, the colonies became aggravated at the interference the British had on them. Then, in 1812, a war broke out once again between the Americans and British.
The beginning of the American Revolution started for a couple reasons.The main reason the American Revolution started was because the colonist of the United States did not pay Great Britain after the Indian war. After the colonist rejected Great Britain 's Monarchy and Aristocracy that is what really made the war start because Great Britain did not think that was fair. The first battle started on the day April 19, 1775. “Great Britain thought they were going to come out with an easy victory over the colonist.”The colonist called themselves, “Loyalist” and Great Britain called themselves,“Patriots.” There were some battles in the American Revolution that were big parts of the war. “There were a lot of battles in the American Revolution, but
The second Battle of Copenhagen took place in from August 16, 1807 to September 5, 1807. The Battle of Copenhagen was a British assault of Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, to try and capture the Dano-Norwegian fleet. The Battle of Copenhagen took place during the Napoleonic Wars. Even though Denmark was defeated in the first Battle of Copenhagen, it still maintained a considerable navy. During the battle, Britain was concerned that Napoleon might force Denmark to close the Baltic Sea by rallying French troops to the island of Zealand.
Although declaring war against Great Britain seemed to be a deadly miscalculation, and an unnecessary one, that could have lead to their imprisonment once again, the reasons as to why America went to war against the British in 1812 were justified due to the conflicts over impressment and naval superiority, the willingness to prove that they were to be seen as a separate nation, as well as the popular idea of expansion as a
