American revolution pt 1

  1. 1. American Revolution Pt. 1byKyle FluckChapters: 14151718<br />
  2. 2. Chap. 14 The Atlantic News<br />The volume and predictability of shipping through trade routes took away the feeling of isolation from the colonies and gave them easier access to information and news. <br />Due to the amount of information streaming in and the demand for information throughout the colonies the newspaper was born.<br />The London news was a primary supplier that provided the colonies with news stimulation that was needed as the colonies became more involved with transatlantic commerce and more vulnerable to imperial warfare. <br />
  3. 3. Chap. 14 The Atlantic Trade<br />In the 17th-18th century trade and commerce greatly expanded and became very complex between the empire and colonies. <br />Instead of a simple bilateral trade between the two regions, the empire developed a multilateral trading system that used bills of exchange drawn on London merchant firms. This was done to ensure that regional credits and debits were balanced.<br />The great flow of information and<br /> commerce caused a great influx of <br /> economic growth in the colonies.<br />
  4. 4. Chap. 15 Establishments<br />The founders of the colonies believed that religious uniformity was needed to keep public morality, political harmony, and social order throughout. <br />Anyone who did not believe in this was either fined, whipped or jailed. <br />Each colonist was required to attend and pay taxes for at least one religiously established church. <br />In the 17th century more colonies offered less religious toleration than those of the original colony. <br />
  5. 5. Chap. 15 Growth and its Limits<br />Even when the colonies were experiencing difficult conditions they found a way to develop a vast array of notable and beautiful churches.<br />Although everything looked good from the outside and it seemed that churches and religion was spreading an internal conflict was going on between evangelicals and rationalists.<br />
  6. 6. Chap. 17 The Great Plains<br />The great plains belonged to small bands of hunters and gatherers who traveled on foot. <br />They were known as Nomads and were well known for their buffalo hunting skills. <br />The plains soon became full of villages that grew crops and lived off of hunting. <br />Unlike the typical villagers the Nomads moved from place to place in small mobile camps, they lived off of scant food and fed from the land freely. <br />
  7. 7. The Great Plains: Horses and Guns(Western civilization)<br />The association that the Great plain Indians have with the horse was largely influenced by the intrusion of colonies and villages within their lands. <br />As the colonies expanded and traded with the Indians the Natives also acquired firearms.<br />The reason for the use of horses and firearms was for the Indians to keep up with their new intruders. <br />They counted on the firearms to defend their villages and raid the colonies.<br />They did not abandon all of their own original weapons such as the bow and arrow. As this was also used for war and hunting. <br />
  8. 8. Chap. 18 Imperial Wars and Crisis<br />During the 1700’s there was a possibility of a renewed war with France, but a dominant British politician, Sir Robert Walpole, argued that stability and peace was far more agreeable that a war. <br />His view while far more intelligent was ignored by the press and parliament. <br />
  9. 9. Imperial War and Crisis<br />The war became over who had control in the New world. <br />Savvy Imperialist recognized that they must use the natural resources to win the battle. So they enlisted the help of Indian tribes.<br />The Indians used their knowledge of the land and specialties of guerrilla warfare to dominate the forest between the rival empires. <br />The war depleted the supplies within New France and caused the Indians to make peace with British Officials in order to get certain goods. <br />
