Colonialists were in search of a better life in the newly discovered land of the Americas. Ties with their mother-country of Britannia, over three thousand miles away, resulted in miscommunication and arguments. Eventually these arguments and miscommunications lead to the Revolutionary War, provoking many American Colonists to join the Continental Army. Each soldier from the militia to the regular recruits had reasons to fight; many of these reasons were influenced by the first Age of Enlightenment and other reasons were formed by personal experiences with the conflicts of Britannia and the American Colonies. The movie, The Patriot, presented many reasons that are supported by major historical documents, such as the Declaration of
Throughout the lectures and learn smart assessments regarding the American Revolution and the War of 1812, there are many different factors as to why Americans declared both of these wars as well as how these wars were both won by America. Colonists fought for independence, land, and rights while enduring the hate from loyalists and the attacks of the British throughout two separate wars to fight for what they believed in. Though both of the wars were not close in time that they took place, they have a lot to do with each other and a lot to do with the independence of what is America today. The War of 1812 was the second war for independence because the British were treating the people of the United States as they were still colonists and the United States wanted clear independence and freedom.
In the two films The Patriot, and 1776, there were some similarities and there were differences. Some of the similarities and differences had to do with the setting and the time period it was in. Also in the films the some of the characters shared the same traits, the wars in the movies in the movies were also different like in The Patriot it had a lot to do with war but in the 1776 movie it had to do with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. They both both share the one important thing America’s independence.
In early America, there were three factions that developed within the colonies- Loyalists, Patriots, and fence-sitters (neutral). This melting pot of different ideas, goals, and outlooks is what made pre-Revolutionary War America so volatile. These three factions seem easy to identify, Patriots wanted freedom from the crown all together, Loyalists want to stay British, and fence-sitters want to stay out of the political battle all together. However, it goes much farther than that, many different backgrounds and goals drove these people forward. Many did not take up the title of Loyalist or Patriot unless the struggles affected them directly, many more only took sides when it was profitably to

The United States and Venezuela were both once colonies controlled by European Nations. In 1765, The American Revolution took place by the rebellious united 13 colonies against British power. In 1810, The Venezuelan Revolution began with many reasons to go against Spain. Both revolutions had similar reasons such as to become an independent Nation and secure liberal rights. While ideas and perspectives may have differed in 17-1800s, it was about finding peace and prosperity as it did not exist in the colonies. While whites always had the upper hand, during the revolution specific groups of people took over with rebellions and resistances. On the other hand, there were specific reasons to why people resisted and revolted against the leaders in charge. European nations were greeds wanting money and control, their mistreatment were the reasons for the revolution. Both the Venezuelan and American revolution had the catastrophic number. Even though, The American and Venezuelan revolution took place in different time period, there were similar reason for resistance/rebellions in colonies to become an Independent Nation and carry out equality and Freedom.
The revolutionary era refers to the uprising of the common people against authority in the late 1700s. Great Britain ruled the American colonies for several years since 1607. The American Revolution came as a need from the American people for independence from Great Britain. This need for independence was stirred up by the enactment of the Stamp Act in American colonies by the British. American colonies were congenial to liberty and independence due to religion and other factors. The American people reacted to the stamp act with public resistance in the colonies. Therefore, the American revolutionary war was the result of the refusal to pay taxes, imposed on the colonists by British
The Age of Enlightenment served as the concrete base for America. It also served the same purpose in France. The desire for a “utopia” was what each nation wanted, as any country would. The Enlightenment promoted the individual or the idea of humanism. Humanism, which spread across Europe after the creation of the printing press, was a philosophy that no longer focused on theism but human needs. Man was no longer depending on the church for thoughts to make decisions. The idea of fearing their God and church was no longer seen as necessary. People were trying to come up with solutions through their own rational thought uninfluenced by anyone else, but themselves. Both France and the American colonies were becoming secular, though France
The eye has many different views; it can see a vice as virtue just as it can see green as red. There is always a different point of view- a principle that many historical and personal events have demonstrated.
The Treaty of Paris, where the Americans ended the war against the British. You may wonder what kind of war or what started the war? Some say the British started, the other say the Americans started the war. The British wanted to keep control of the Americans. They used the Americans to pay back their expenses on war.
“On the evening of April 18, 1775, Revere was sent to Lexington to warn everyone that the British were coming.” According to the poem. The poem didn't have all the accurate information and didn't tell all the correct details. The title of the poem was, “Paul Revere and the american revolution.” by Ethel Ames. The other one was titled, “How accurate was longfellow's poem?” by Franklin Johnson. One way the poem was inaccurate was that in the poem it said that the lantern led the way that the British was going, but, it was actually so if Paul Revere didn't make it to the village.In Longfellow's poem about Paul Revere there are many historical mistakes. Another mistake is that in the poem, it did not mention the two other guys that helped Paul revere warn people.Lastly, in the poem it said he finished his expedition, but no one
The revolutionary war was started on April 19, 1775 and ended on September 3, 1783. This war was a fight between the loyalist and the patriots. The Loyalist were a group of people who as in their name was loyal to the king. The Patriots were a group of people who wanted freedom so they moved away and became independent. Between the Loyalist and the Patriots I would have to say the Patriots were better.
Compare and contrast the major advantages and disadvantages of the British and the colonists as the Revolutionary War began. (strengths/weaknesses)
The Treaty of Paris of 1783 was signed in Paris by Great Britain and representatives of the United States on September 3, 1783. The Treaty of Paris ended the war between Great Britain and The United states, also known as The Revolutionary War and The American Revolution acknowledging the existence of the United States as a sovereign country. After the British defeated Yorktown, the American Peace Commissioners Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, John Adams, and Richard Oswarld representing Great Britain, started talking about peace in Paris on April 1782. The American negotiators joined Henry Laurens two days before the preliminary articles of peace were signed on November 30, 1782. The Treaty of Paris ended the war and was not
