  1. 1. American Revolution Monika Ahmadi Mon
  2. 2.  Many factors influences the American rebellion known as the American Revolution. Though QuickTime™ and a political influences existed, the decompressor are needed to see this picture. American Revolution was primarily an economic rebellion, because of conflict over taxation and representation in Parliament. The colonists had strong beliefs that the English government was unfair and often tyrannical. The conflicts over trade, taxes, and government representation brought about the revolution that began shaping the United States as it is today. QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.
  3. 3.  Although there were many economic influences on the American Revolution, these were not the primary causes. The colonists believed that the king of QuickTime™ and a decompressor England, King George III at the time, are needed to see this picture. was too controlling over the colonies, with tyrannical leadership. This is shown in the Declaration of Independence, declaring the United States free from quot;absolute Tyranny over the States.quot; To add to this conflict, British forces were attempting to intimidate the colonists into submission. The colonist's attitude towards this policy was that it only gave them more cause and justification for violence. The general belief among to colonists was that it was God's will that America and Britain be separated, and God's will was a pretty strong proponent and motivation for them. In 1775, the colonists took up arms against the British troops in the colonies. They met at the QuickTime™ and a Battle of Lexington and Concord, and decompressor are needed to see this picture. some of the captured American soldiers were being executed. With all of these events, the adversity towards the English was growing.
  4. 4. Republicanism  Republicanism and direct democracy, these are two ways that a people can be governed. There is a major difference between these two systems. In a republican system the government represents the people. The representatives are chosen by popular vote and are given the power to make decisions on behalf of the people. The people do not get to voice their own opinions, the best they can do is vote for their representative and hope he wins. This can also be referred to as indirect democracy. Direct democracy which was exemplified in the ancient Athenian city-state, or the New England town meeting in modern times, is a government based solely on the people. The governmental decisions are passed only if the majority of the people vote for it. quot;Peoplequot;, that is the key word, the people themselves are included in making political decisions.
  5. 5. Republicanism  The philosophy of a republican form of government was certainly not a creation of James Madison and the Federalists. The idea of such a government has been around since the beginning of political philosophy. While the definition has changed over the centuries, certain constants continue to define a strictly republican regime. The goals and priorities of a republic are distinct yet dissimilar from those of James Madison’s philosophy. Generally, a republican government is defined as one which idealizes the public interests as the highest good and imposes a duty on each citizen to work toward the public interests before individual ones. Due to the influence of natural rights philosophers, Madison’s ideas are not strictly republican despite the fact that he considers them to be so.
  6. 6. American Resistance  Independence was the main focus of the colonies after monarch rule of the British. During this key period of American history, quot;The American Revolutionquot; would be a more appropriate term instead of quot;The War for Independence.quot; In the dictionary, the term quot;revolutionquot; is defined as an overthrow of one government and its replacement with another. The American Revolution gives a broader sense of what is going on; starting from the initial ideology of independence, the acts and protests carried out based on this ideology, and the war that resulted from it. quot;The War for Independencequot; is only a small section of the whole spectrum of The American Revolution. In this paper, I will show differences between the two ideas by providing concrete examples from Thomas Paine's Common Sense along with historical events discussed in the text book and in class. America has grown vastly apart from the British Empire culturally and politically. Instead of the colonies becoming an extension of England, it has become a new country in itself.

  8. 8. Revolution  The causes of the Industrial Revolution were complex and remain a topic for debate, with some historians seeing the Revolution as an outgrowth of social and institutional changes wrought by the end of feudalism in Great Britain after the English Civil War in the 17th century. The Enclosure movement and the British Agricultural Revolution made food production more efficient and less labor-intensive, forcing the surplus population who could no longer find employment in agriculture into the cities to seek work in the newly developed factories. The colonial expansion of the 17th century with the accompanying development of international trade, creation of financial markets and accumulation of capital are also cited as factors, as is the scientific revolution of the 17th century. The presence of a large domestic market should also be considered an important catalyst of the Industrial Revolution, particularly explaining why it occurred in Britain. In other nations, such as France, markets were split up by local regions, which often imposed tolls and tariffs on goods traded among them
  9. 9. Revolution  The following events represent the major events along the way to war. While it would be hard to point to any one event that singularly led to the Revolution, there is no doubt that the American view that they were entitled to the full democratic rights of Englishmen, while the British view that the American colonies were just colonies to be used and exploited in whatever way best suited the Great Britain, insured that war was inevitable.
  10. 10. Constitution- Making and War  The Constitution of the United States, the fundamental law of the United States of America. Drafted by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pa., between May 25 and Sept. 17, 1787, it is the world's oldest written constitution still in effect. The document presents a set of general principles out of which implementing statutes and codes have emerged. As such, it embodies the essence of constitutionality--that government must be confined by the rule of law. The House of Representatives, Congress, The President and Vice President were executive powers outlined in key sections within the Constitution. These people represented all of the colonies together as one, the United States of America.
  11. 11. Constitution- Making and War  The Constitution consists of a preamble, 7 articles , and 27 amendments. The first part of the constitution is the Preamble. The Preamble explains the purpose for writing the Constitution and the main ideas to be carried out by the government and the people in order to make a more perfect union. Each purpose of the preamble had a special meaning to statesmen in seventeen eighty nine. The purpose was one, to form a more perfect union of people living together. Two, to establish justice for creditors by given them the right to take away the possessions of people who don't compensate them. Three, to ensure domestic tranquillity, or prevent events such as Shays Rebellion. Four, to provide common defense or to protect the nation from adversaries such Indians and the pirates. Five, to promote general welfare, which relates to the depression the country was in economically (by the way our nations economy is called Capitalism). And lastly six , to secure the blessing of liberty by enforcing the idea of freedom in every way possible.
