Prelude torevolution jamessmithiii

  1. 1. James Smith III<br />Prelude to Revolution<br />
  2. 2. Chapter 13Revolutions<br />The Dominion<br />King James consolidated five different colonies to form one big supercolony<br />This supercolony was a big change from the movement of autonomy and each colony having its own control<br />The Supercolony had the dictator Gov. Andros as their leader and he imposed new shocking laws.<br />He radically reorganized the court and militia systems<br />And imposed new taxes on the masses with the disapproval of his own council<br />
  3. 3. Chapter 13Glorious revolution<br />Revolution<br />With the news of King James fleeing to France and William and Mary taking over England, the controllers of the Dominion began suppressing the news.<br />On April 18, 1689 rebels overthrew the Dominion officials. The colony split and all of the separate colonies revived their old charters<br />By May New York had overthrown their oppressors <br />In VA and The West Indies did not need to overthrow their governors instead, their governor left and the councils left behind relaxed the law<br />
  4. 4. Chapter 14News<br />As wars raged on in Europe, the colonials felt like they were being drawn into things they did not know much about. They cried out for more information<br />During much of the 1600s there weren't any newspaper allowed in the colonies, with the exception of Boston,, they were not allowed for fear of sedition<br />By the year 1700 the colonies became more comfortable and allowed more newspaper to report on things from the homeland and in the colonies<br />
  5. 5. Chapter 14trade<br />During the 18th century the country of England developed a complex multilateral trade system between the country and the colonist<br />Navigation acts forced the colonies to send most exports to England first and many became indebted.<br />As wheat became the commodity choice the colonies, specifically the middle colonies, became richer. <br />The people of the colonies had the highest growing economy of the time; they were only 4 percent of England’s GDP in 1700 and by 1770 they were 40 percent<br />
  6. 6. Chapter 15Revival<br />Early in the 18th century there was new fired up feel towards religion in particular the evangelical type, this was called the revival. There was an explosion to the amount of members to many churches.<br />There was big emphasis on converting sinners to saints. Many of the members believed that just acting good wouldn’t get you “god’s grace” instead one had to be “saved”.<br />With this is in hand, many preachers pulled on the motions and heartstrings of churchgoers to scare them into obedience so that they could receive “god’s grace”.<br />There was a problem of people beginning to become “radical”, some members of evangelical churches began to commit suicide to see god early.<br />
  7. 7. Chapter 15Radical<br />Many members of the evangelical religion felt torn between the moderate view and the radical view. <br />Many moderates believed that they could be “saved” and still do normal things and support the government.<br />Many radicals believed that their religion was the only thing they should do.<br />Many radicals felt the need denounce the radical view in order to defend their own religion.<br />
