American colonies

  1. 1. American Colonies:Prelude to Revolution<br />Joseph M. Kooiker<br />History 140<br />Professor Arguello<br />
  2. 2. Glorious Revolutions<br />The Glorious Revolution happened after King James of England left the throne of England which was filled by William of Orange and his wife, Mary<br />This was what the English wanted because they wanted a Protestant on the throne versus a Catholic<br />This left many of the officials in the colonies in limbo because they didn’t know whether or not William and Mary would secure control over the colonies<br />
  3. 3. Men and Money<br />After James II was removed as King the English came into conflict with the French who were a Catholic nation which supported James<br />With the Nine Year’s War raging between the English and the French, the English had to charge the people of the colonies more taxes<br />
  4. 4. Colonial and Indian War<br />During the Nine Year’s War the English only maintained a small army in the colonies because they needed most of their forces in Europe<br />During this time the English in the colonies suffered many attacks from the French from New France<br />Indians who sided with the French suffered at the hands of the English at the end of the War because the English colonist would attack Indian villages<br />
  5. 5. The Atlantic:The Scottish<br />Many Scottish immigrated to the British colonies<br />A lot of Scottish people prospered in the colonies which drove more people to come to the colonies<br />The Scottish felt superior to the Irish which caused a rift in the English colonies<br />
  6. 6. The Great Plains:Texas<br />The Spanish had built many missions throughout the American South West<br />Missionaries brought disease to the Indians of the South West<br />The Spanish were very wary of the English and French conflicts in the East because it posed a threat to their possessions in the West and South<br />
  7. 7. Imperial Wars and Crisis: The Seven Years War<br />The English and the French’s peace did not last for very long<br />In 1755, the British sent troops to help defend and fight against the French who were trying to attack the colonies<br />The Spanish remained out of the conflict but watched the wins and losses closely <br />
  8. 8. Imperial Wars and Crisis:Indian Rebellions<br />With the conflict between the French and the British raging the Indians could no longer play them off each other to their own advantage<br />The Cherokee were one of the first groups to rebel against the colonists because the colonists invaded their land<br />The Cherokee would later be put down by the British and colonial troops<br />
  9. 9. Imperial Wars and Crisis:Empire of Liberty<br />The Colonists prior to the Revolution many of them had a lot of pride in being English, one of the main reasons was that they made a lot of money by trading within the British Empire<br />After the British began to tighten their grip on the colonies the colonists began to get a little more agitated<br />
  10. 10. The Pacific:Kamehameha<br />The Hawaiian islands were very important because of their place within the trading routes of the Pacific<br />Chief Kamehameha became the dominant ruler in the Hawaiian islands<br />Hawaii would eventually experience the missionaries disease that effected the mainland natives<br />
