Transcript of American Revolutionaries

By: Bronson Rivera, Joe Rayray,
Trenton Chang, and Cody Kurihara American Revolutionaries What is their view of God? -They believed that God was a sign of
hope to win the war. What are their values? - Their top three values were Freedom, Equality, and Justice. How do they define truth? 1) All men are created equal
2) That they are endowed with
unalienable rights.
3) That among these are life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness. Do the colonists have an optimistic
or pessimistic view of life? They view life optimistically because pre revolution colonists wrote
books that explained the tyranny and the oppression of the British, but envisioned
a brighter future that was set for the colonists if they had chosen to break free
from British rule. As said in the Declaration of Independence, What are their views of work
and worldy sucess? They view life optimistically because pre revolution colonists wrote
books that explained the tyranny and the oppression of the British, but envisioned
a brighter future that was set for the colonists if they had chosen to break free
from British rule. As said in the Declaration of Independence. What is their view of society? The colonists saw society as a place in which all men were treated as equals and they also seeked to instill freedom and justice into their government. Who is their authority? During the American Revolution, the colonist made colonial governments that provided money and troops to the continental government but they also could withhold these thing because the continental government had a lesser governing body. What is their view of education? Do they view man as inherently
good, evil or somewhere in between? The colonists viewed man as inherently in between because not everyone in the colonies could be fully good or fully bad. The colonist saw education as a way to establish their independence in thought and in deed. Education was also seen as a tool for the growth of freedom, liberty, and democracy. do you think arriving at moral perfection a worthwhile goal? How does that philosophy translate
into how they lived? Sayings of Poor Richard
Love your neighbor; yet don’t pull down your hedge
Love your neighbor, but keep your distance
A lie stands on one leg, truth on two
A lie cannot be backed up and you are bound to fall sooner or later
The sleeping fox catches no poultry
If your lazy, you get nothing
Little strokes fell great oaks
If you pursue something, chances are that you can achieve that goal
One today is worth two tomorrows
If your do something right today, it can prevent double work later on according to the autobiography
"moral perfection", i believe that reaching the lifelong goal of moral perfection is worth a lifetime and it would not be wasted. it also shows that a person that achieves this is a gentlemen with superb moral values. How does that philosophy translate into
how they lived? Based on the reading “Speech to the Virginia Convention”, they were into slavery, so this speech is all about the idea of them being freed from slavery. Patrick Henry wanted to explain that he would rather die instead of having a life as a slave, which is where the famous quote “give me liberty, or give me death” had came from. They were also forced to go to war, since they went to war, they wanted freedom even more because in the reading they were crying for peace. They couldn’t fight the war by themselves.
