Transcript of The american revolution and the United empire loyalists

The american revolution and the United empire loyalists Why did the U.S. 13 colonies
rebel? There is many reasons the U.S. 13 colonies rebelled against the Brits. One reason was that the colonies could not move into Ohio even though thier soldiers fought so hard just to get the french out. other reasons were...
Guards were posted just to keep them out of Ohio.
Britain passed the "intolerable" acts, a series harsh acts to punish.These include closing the port of Boston, placing more troops in the colony, and owtlawing town meetings. (i just had to put these) Finally what lead up to the American revolution the Boston massacre in 1770 when a crowd fought against British red coats causing the deaths of many inoccent people. Who are the loyalists?what happened
to them?where did they go? The loyalists were people who lived in the U.S. 13 colonies who did not want independance from Britian and were still loyal to King George the third. Some of the loyalists were not even British, there were Germans, Dutchs, and many other origins. Americans who called themselves "patriots" went out and frightened anyone who could be a loyalist and spy for Great Britain. They would be beaten, stole from, black mailed, and many other horrible things. Many fled to Canada and those who could afford it sailed to Great Britain. What was the outcome of the war? Finally the war was put to stop in 1783. Britian accepted the American independence from them and retreated giving up thier land in America. The new country refused to forgive the loyalists and they could not vote, move freely, and had to pay higher taxes. Some loyalists left America and became "refuges". After the end of the American revolution,
a huge migration of loyalists(35 000) went to
New York to be moved to Nova Scotia. They
went there because it was the fastest and easiest
place to go.
Who played a big part in the war/ revolution?
Some people who played a big part in the war were...
George Washington because he took command of the troops in Boston and was chosen to be the leader of the American army.
Thomas Jefferson because he actually wrote the declaration of independance that offically made U.S. independant.
Betsy Ross whom was asked by General washington to make the american flag and possibly convince him to have five pointed stars instead of six.
Joseph Brant was a war chief and was first a translator for the British and was commissioned as officer in 1779.
