  5. 5. Document C <ul><li>Document C states that all the Americans in N. America are ultimately united in order to obstruct those who attempt to take away their liberties, regardless of who it is.

  6. 6. Document D <ul><li>Document D shows the opinion of a British Loyalist (Tory) who lives in America and expresses his opinion of rather having the British in rule than the American Colonists, due to the British being three thousand miles away and the “three thousand Tyrants” being in the country which could cause potential chaos within the country, excluding the issues that are already present due to the “one tyrant three thousand miles away.” </li></ul>Nonsense Loyalist to the British Possible Categorization - Social Injustice

The effects of the Port Bill are , and not limited to, the violation of natural rights of many American colonists and the upbringing union of all the colonies to help Boston reserve supplies for the closing of the port.

  15. 15. The Rise in Different Polit. outlook (cont.) <ul><li>Monarchy and Democracy- With the monarchy of Britain ruling over the colonies in America, much of the colonies strived for a Democracy in which they could separate from England and set a system of government in which the people had power. </li></ul><ul><li>Albany Plan-was a &quot;plan of union&quot; that was adopted by the delegates of  the northern colonies ( (South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England) and the representatives from the Six Iroquois Nations when they met at Albany, New York to to unite the American colonies for management of Indian relations and defense against France but it was later used for colonial unity against British.(1754) </li></ul><ul><li>Treaty of Paris- Signed by England, France, and Spain, it ended the Seven Years War in America and allowed for England to gain all of N. America east of the Mississippi. </li></ul><ul><li>Proclamation Line of 1763-The Proclamation Line of 1763 prevented the Colonists from expanding westward, and gave more trade and political power to Britain.

This enraged Americans because it weakened their own trade. (1773) </li></ul><ul><li>Navigation Acts-Were a series of laws that restricted the use of foreign shipping for trade between England and it colonies, which started in 1651, but was not enforced until after the1750s, when the Sugar Act of 1764 became a source of resentment from the Merchants of American Colonies. </li></ul>

External taxes- Internal taxes were taxes imposed that were not related to export or import,like a poll tax (a per-person amount), a sales tax (a percentage of the value sold), and an excise tax (an amount based on an event, such as issuance of a license or permit, or the sale of an item independent of the value of the item). External Taxes A fee paid to the government placed on items of import or export and was generally used to discourage its use, as a regulation of trade (and not to raise revenue). </li></ul><ul><li>Impartial Administration of Justice Act- As a result of the Boston Tea Party, it allowed the royal governor of a colony to move trials to other colonies or even to England if he feared that juries in those colonies wouldn’t judge fairly(1774) </li></ul><ul><li>Massachusetts Bay Regulating Act- As a result of the Boston Tea Party, Made all law officers subject to appointment by the royal governor and banned all town meetings that didn’t have approval of the royal governor(1774) </li></ul>

Idiot Paragraph <ul><ul><li>Although many colonists had identified themselves as Americans by the evening of the America Revolution, there was still some who were loyal to the British. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People within the Colonies who identified themselves as being loyal to the crown were known as Tories. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Document  D helps show the view of a Tory and how he preferred to be ruled by the Monarchy, instead the American Democracy, but still shows how he would rather live in N.America then in England. </li></ul></ul>
