Transcript of REVOLUTION
Taxes ENOUGH! proclamation of 1763 Tea Act The Tea Act was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain. Its main objective was to reduce the massive amounts of extra tea held by the financially troubled British East India Company in its London warehouses and to help the struggling company survive. All of this was enforced on the British Colonies Patriots Video British Soldiers were ruled by King George the 3rd. He led the British to become one of the most powerful and dominant countries at the time. He ruled two countries, Ireland and Britain from 1760 to 1820. He accepted defeat by the Americans in 1782 in the battle of Yorktown. 6 years after the colonists declared their freedom from Great Britain and the Red Coat soldiers. A rough model of a particular person, damaged or destroyed as a protest or expression of anger. The American Revolution was mainly caused by British taxation, which then escalated into violence, with fights, riots, outbreaks, and boycotts because the Colonists could not stand the injustice. This resulted in a rebellion. As Britain tried to maintain their hold on the colonies, the colonists rebelled, boycotting goods, taxes and rebelling against the troops stationed in the colonies. Boycott- to refrain from using or buying/ dealing
goods as a protest. Resolution of the war These minor events all occurred as a result of the american revolution The Treaty of Paris (1783)
American independence was guaranteed.
The U.S. was given the territory east of the Mississippi between Canada and Florida.
The British could collect debts from Americans.
Loyalists properties would be compensated for or returned.
The long term results of the war:
More people could vote.
More land was available in the west and from land that was taken away from the Loyalists.
Religious freedom was expanded.
Antislavery feeling increased. All but South Carolina and Georgia abolished the import of slaves.
American manufacturing increased.
State governments were established.
The Articles of Confederation was established as the form of national government.
Conflict between the U.S. and Great Britain was almost assured because British debts were not collected, Loyalists were not compensated and the British maintained forts in the Northwest. Stamp Act -Tax on the colonists imposed on printed documents
or the transfer of documents. Separation
line A patriot is someone who feels a strong support for his or her country Loyalist Loyalists were American colonists who remained loyal to the Kingdom of Great Britain (and the British monarchy) during the American Revolutionary War Victory! The events that took place at Bunker Hill is among the most notorious feats of the American Colonists in the revolutionary war. In 1775, the Battle of Bunker Hill was an extremely vital battle for American Colonists in their quest for independence. Worn down by attacks from the British Army during sieges at Boston, the Bunker Hill battle of June 17, 1775 provided a spark of encouragement for the colonists as well as sending a clear message to the British that the war would not be won quickly or easily. It showed the heart of the colonists who were trying so desperately to get their prize of independence. In 1775 if the Olive
Branch Petition would
have passed this war
would have never
happened. The petition
was a failed attempt
of the colonists trying
to avoid a full blown war
with Britain. However, it
was declined by
King George III, starting
the infamous American
Revolution HOWEVER! Sugar Act The Sugar Act was passed in 1764. The British placed a tax on sugar, wine, and other important things. The British did this because they wanted more money to increase their revenue. VENGEANCE Very Bad News... As if there weren't enough taxes the British also made the Townshend Acts. What were the Townshend Acts? The Townshend Acts, 1767, were originated by Charles Townshend and passed by the English Parliament... They were designed to collect revenue from the colonists in America by putting restrictions on imports of glass, lead, paints, paper, and tea. The Continental Army was formed after the start of the American Revolutionary War by the colonies. Established by the first Continental Congress on June 14, 1775, it was created to revolt against Britain Obvious John Hancock was famous for his very conspicuous signature on the Declaration of Independence, the document that the Colonists created that confirmed their independence from Britain. the income of a government from taxation, excise duties, customs, or other sources, appropriated to the payment of the public expenses Minutemen were members of well-prepared militia companies of select men from the American colonial partisan militia during the American Revolutionary War. The Others OTIS Attended 1st and 2nd Continental congress

Was a major player
in the Revolutionary war. James Otis Thomas Paine In 1776, Thomas Paine was the author of "Common Sense", a document that challenged the authority of the British government and the royal monarchy. The plain language that Paine used spoke to the common people of America and was the first person to openly ask for independence from Great Britain. Let's Start the Revolution! Leave your post? I think not. A standing army is a professional permanent army. It is made of full-time career soldiers and is still waiting for action even during times of peace. Common sense is an example of Propaganda. Propaganda is something that tries to persuade people with a certain political view. MORE about propaganda. Mercy Otis Warren was a famous political writer and propagandist of the American Revolution. Liberty! Patrick Henry is remembered for his "Give me Liberty, or give me Death!" speech about the terrible acts of the British. Along with Samuel Adams and Thomas Paine, he is known as one of the most influential hero of the American Revolution and really fought hard for his country's independence. Sorry Mr. Rothermel this is where I
lost my work. I tried really hard to get the L
done last class but I totally lost everything on that dreaded day of January 9th. To make matters worse...After
my game yesterday my friend informed me our
internet access in our area was down. I didn't
get it back until 10:15. If you are un-happy with
my work I will gladly do it over the weekend,
and give it to you on Tuesday 100% finished.
Thank you- Evan Giannetti
