Roots of Revolution
Colonial America, 1607-1776
Early American Settlements
Jamestown, Virginia (1607)
Massachusetts Bay Colony (1620)
Fueling the seeds of Revolution...
Early 1700s - England took a policy of salutary neglect in the colonies (hands-off government)
Colonists got used to acting on their own!
Mid-1700s - the fur trade in the West created military and economic alliances between Europeans and Native American tribes
Basic survival needs (food, shelter, drinking water)
Exposed to new diseases
Cultural differences with Native Americans
Conflicts over land ownership with Native Americans (King Philip's War - New England)
Challenges/questions with colonial governments - who is the ultimate authority?
Defining the role of the "mother country" - England used the colonies to gain power and money
The French and Indian War
Think-Pair-Share: Make a Prediction!
How do you think the outcome of the French and Indian War is going to affect the relationship between Britain and the colonists?
The costs of war...
The relationship between colonists and Native Americans continued to be challenging.
Pontiac's Rebellion and the outbreak of violence between British settlers and Native Americans led to the British issuance of the Proclamation of 1763 (forbade colonists to settle west of the Appalachians)
Restrictions on settlement and new demands from the British government increased hostility between the colonists and their Mother Country...
"Taxation Without Representation is Tyranny!"
The British began to impose new laws and taxes on the colonists to fund the war debt and to continue to defend their colonial empire.
