Nearly 10,000 French army officers and aristocrats (nobles) were ready to join the foreign invasion (Doc C). France was facing a real crisis with only two years into the revolution. The Reign of Terror was bloody, but it clarified the goals of all French citizens- join the army, protect the revolution, and resist the return to feudalism and the Old Regime. The map addresses that France had external threats, in August 1792, 80,000 Austrian and Prussian armies were marching towards France to suppresses the French Revolution. That was not the only problem France had though, they also had internal troubles, 10,000 French army officers and aristocrats had moved to the Austrian-controlled Netherlands to form armies and they allied themselves with France’s foreign enemies.
Therefore, America 's success was based more on America’s guerilla warfare and the support from other countries than the debt of the British. The Seven Years War, prior to the American Revolution, broke off with Britain at a national debt of 140 million pounds. Great Britain put taxes on their own citizens to help pay off the debt of their country. The American Revolution took an additional extensive amount of money out of Britain.
How did World War I affect the American traditions of tolerance and liberty? World war 1 affect American a lot. The first war was from festering imperial rivalries and ethnic conflicts in central Europe that set in motion a series of disastrous events and decisions. Just between 1914 and 1921, the war was responsible for more than 9 million combatants.
World War 1 was an atrocious war that caused millions of deaths and hundreds of billions of dollars in reparations. World War 1 lasted from 1914 to 1919 and rudimentarily, was the fight between the Allied powers and the Central powers. The Allied powers consisted of France, Great Britain, Russia, and Belgium while the Central powers consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire. All countries had some participation and damage done throughout World War 1, and the countries who started the war may be obscure. However, there are some countries that can especially be picked out for their contribution and cause for the war.
km. with 12,000,000 population of colonies. This is an example of how imperialism provoked Germany into militarism, and getting Germany started in the ‘friendly competition’ with Great Britain of being better. The last main cause of World War 1 is nationalism, the spirit that
King Louis XIV had a goal to expand France’s borders, and he did that with a powerful army. He standardized the uniforms, weapons, and training. This was the peak of Louis XIV’s success in reforming the government. Similarly, Frederick William I, the Soliders’ King, made Prussia one of the largest militaries in Europe. He was constantly wearing his military uniform and lived a very disciplined life.
National affairs were majorly effected, especially expansion. Funding and grants for railroads went from around thirty-one million acres of land in 1863 to one hundred twenty-nine thousand in 1870. On the other hand the funding for harbors and rivers went from thirty-four thousand dollars in 1862 to around eight million in 1880 (Doc 6). After the transcontinental railroad was built the desire for railroad expansion lessened immensely. As the Civil war concluded the nation needed to rebuild itself more people were employed to create harbors to connect the nation with foreign countries, and the north, south and west even more.
During the mid 1800s, as America was expanding westward, the economy of the different regions in America boosted. The north based their economy off of the recently developed industries, whereas the south continued their work with agriculture and the production of cotton. The development of these two very different forms of business led to sectionalism, or the devotion to the advancement of one’s region as opposed to the country as whole. As more people immigrated to the US in the 1840s specifically from Ireland and Germany, America’s newfound industries were provided with unqualified and inexperienced employees who would work for very little pay. These immigrants were forced to move to the north because they didn’t have the money to buy land
Before World War 1 started, the United States was forced to abandon its neutrality and that is when congress voted in favor of the U.S. entry into World War 1. The government had abandoned its neutrality that America had maintained for three years and the United States felt many pressures that would also end up leading the nations of Europe to a devastating warfare. The western world were deeply influenced by the concept of nationalism because nationalism led was what led to the competitive and antagonistic rivalries among the nations. Many different colonies had supplied the European imperial powers with raw materials and manufactured goods. The growth of nationalism and imperialism led to the increased military spending and the imperial powers
The 1920s also known as the “Roaring Twenties” is best remembered by a time period of change and rebirth throughout America. Before World War 1, the 1800s had been a time period of disagreements and conflicts, but also an industrialisation period of prosperity and growth. Towards the late 1800s the economy grew, wages and production rapidly increased. The opportunities that were available in America caused many to cross the seas in search for jobs and political and religious freedom. From 1861 to 1865 the United States was destroyed by the bloody Civil War which led to more than 600,000 deaths.
"Common Sense" by Thomas Pane enticed the colonists to keep fighting the war by reminding them of there rights and telling them that Britain was contorling them for there own greed. the panflet sold 100,000 copies in the first year mostly in France and Britain it was a staple in every home in the colonies. Another propaganda was the "Join or Die" by Ben Franklin. It showed how the colonists took sides, Loyalists and Partiots, the loyalists were loyal to Britain and the patriots were in favor of fighting for independence. The parts of the snake show the colonies in segments to represent the seperation of the colonies and that they needed to band together and fight for independence (teacherhistory.org).
1) Militarism- Germany, Britain, and France all wanted to build the largest armies and their navies and the battle to use them on each other Alliances- Serbia had an alliance with Russia and Austria-Hungary had an alliance with Germany which lead to more countries getting involved. Imperialism- countries sought to increase their amount of land either for cultural or economic reasons Nationalism- people thought their country was better than the others which led to more people fighting for their country 2) the official policy that was used at the start of the war was to remain neutral. Wilson had ordered that the US would trade with nations on both sides war. In the start of the war, many Americans agreed with that policy saying
World War I was the first long lasting war of the 20th century. It changed the outlook of everyday citizens, and it was even the first war to use things such as airplanes,submarines and poison gas. However, World War I began with an act of terrorism. On June 28, 1914, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand had taken place in Sarajevo by a Bosnian Black Hand member. More than ever before, the war involved more countries and colonies than any of the wars before it.
Because of the trouble between white settlers and immigrants at that time there were numerous outbreaks of violence and laws aimed towards discrimination. Social- Chinese immigrants who migrated to the west would work for wages considerably less than normal and them doing so caused tension between white settlers. Economic or type of economy- The west relied more on agriculture than any other place because it was the most efficient.
Some countries such as Russia and Austria-Hungary didn’t greatly increase expidentures until around 1910, but this still evidences growing aggression before the war. The average of these country’s expidentures in 1870 was $1.91, and in 1910 this had increased to an average of $3.99. Instead of doing so in a way that made allies feel safer, it seemed this new technology could be used against anyone; “the imperialism of all European states has chronically poisons international relations” (document 5). Counrtries prioritized advancing their own military far over helping allies, and thusly allies became aggresive. Eventually, “a European war broke out.
