DIBS.


Probably the number one conflict between Britain and France was dominance. Being both mercantile, they knew that the more money they had the more power they’d have. To achieve such a great dominance, they had to be the leader in trade. In North America, cotton and tobacco were a big deal. The more cotton you’d have, the more clothes you’d have, etc. The West Indies provided a tropical climate; with this tropical climate came the sugar cane crop. Sugar wasn’t a luxury anymore, it was now a staple. Everybody and anybody had it and needed it; it was necessary for daily life. It seemed as if there were no limits to its uses and no limit to its supply; the possibilities were endless. Moving on to India, we have spices. Yes, spices were a big deal… at the beginning. What I mean by that is that India also had a very nice silk and cotton industry. These fabrics caused a boom for demand. If one of the two countries could dominate, they knew they’d have power over everything, and that’s exactly what happened. England came out on top, pushing away France’s trade posts in India. The British also dominated the sugar industry, and the North American cotton and tobacco. With such a great dominance, they became number one just like that.


Yes, of course I can rephrase:
What I mean is...

Why did slave buyers want to buy the Africans from the West Indies, like what was so special about them? Why were they better than taking/buying Africans from Africa? How did this affect plantation life?

I got this one!


1. Sugar Act-tried to produce more revenue from goods that were being bought and sold.
2. Stamp Act-tax on all printed good.
Both acts were efforts by the British Parliment to raise funding for their empire because the empire's resources were being stretched thin. The English had invested a lot of money into the colonies in America and were just trying to get some of their funds back.



What did the acts of John Wilkes confirm about the American suspicion of the English Government? Why is this important?

It proved that the English parliament was very corrupt, because of the way they refused to let him into the government even after he was elected several times. And even with multiple groups of people in society supporting him the English government refused to recognize him because of his ideas in politics and because of how he criticized Lord Bute’s handling of peace negotiations with France. They even tried to arrest him and get him out of the country. But because of wide spread support he was still elected.


how did France lose most of its land in North America and how did this effect Great Britans ?

France lost its colonies in North America mainly due to William Pitt. Pitt was Secretary of State in charge of the war in 1757. Pitt's main goals were to gain all of North America east of the Mississippi for Great Britain. He sent over 40,000 regular and colonial troops against the French in Canada and the colonists cooperated with Pitt because they saw it as an oppurtunity to defeat the French. France had a corrupt military and troops in Canada were divided, meaning that France couldn't properly support its troops. The British army defeated the French on the Plains of Abraham, beginning the end of France's reign in Canada. Britain supported their army with the money from the sales of captured sugar and increased slave trade. Eventually, a truce was reached in the Treat of Paris of 1763, Britain recieved all of Canada. This meant that Great Britain's empire grew. However, Britain had a lot of debt from the war and turned to the colonies to pay it back. They taxed the colonies and eventually this led to the Revolution.

American Colonists had many political ideas that eventually led to the Revolution. What were some of these ideas and where did they get them from?

The ideas of "natural rights" (AKA "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness") came from John Locke, an English philospher. American Revolutionaries got many of their ideas from him especially their idea of deposing a unjust government (George III and Parliment) and installing their own. The Bill of Rights shows John Locke's influence (see his Letter COncerningToleration) especially in the First Amendment dealing with freedom of religion.

this one is mine

Frederick II was intent on invading Austria because he thought Saxony, France, and Austria were conspiring against him and that Austria was a threat to the Prussian power. As well as the Austrian threat to his country, Saxony was good land and would increase his territory. He had originally tried to capture Silesia, and he didn’t respect the Austrian power and the balance between the other countries.

Thank Ya Smile and... DIBS!



The Diplomatic Revolution was when George ll of Britain was the elector of Hanover in Germany and he feared attacks from the French. This caused Britain and Prussia to sign the Convention of Westminster, a defense alliance, preventing foreign troops from entering Spain. Fredrick ll feared an alliance between Russia and Austria, causing Britain to ally as well. Then in 1756, France and Austria signed a defense alliance, reversing France's foreign policy. During the Seven Year’s War, all of these alliances caused Fredrick ll to invade Saxony in August 1756 because he considered this to be an attack against a conspiracy by Saxony, Austria and France to destroy Prussia. In 1757, France and Austria begin a new alliance to destroy Prussia.
Sweden, Russia and many small German states then joined. In short, everyone started choosing sides.

Mine!

The Yorkshire Association Movement was organized by Yorkshire landowner, Christopher Wyvil. British citizens were unhappy with Lord North as minister, how the war with America was being handled, and the high taxes. So, Yorkshire landowners got together in a mass meeting to try to demand changes for the government. The Yorkshire Association Movement collapsed because the supports didn’t want to try to get broader support for it.

The slaves in Europe kept their culture and heritage by;
They were able to visit each other when going to the towns and markets. They still spoke their native language to fellow slaves, and upon arriving to the plantations, they organized themselves by ethnicity. For example, if we went to be slaves, they would have all the people from Kentucky together, slaves from Tennessee, etc. Also, African slaves upheld their native religions and organzined themselves upon that, too. Oddly enough, they also created queens and kings within the slave communities. On some occassions, they would communicate through playing the drums.

some examples of things maria theresa did to change and improve the harpsburg empire were granting new powers and privelages to the nobility,thus securing the crown; and she made Hungary her number one priority and worked to make it one of the most powerful monarchs in the world.

The 1668 Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle ended the War of Devolution, between France and Spain. France fought the war to win the Spanish Netherlands and Franche-Comte, an area bordering on Switzerland. By the treaty Louis XIV of France gained several cities in the Spanish Netherlands but gave up Franche-Comté, which his army had occupied. The 1748 Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle ended the War of the Austrian Succession. Great Britain and France took opposite sides in this war, and their hostilities extended to America (King George's War) and to India. By the peace treaty nearly all the conquests on both sides were returned, but Frederick the Great of Prussia was permitted to keep Silesia, which he had taken from Maria Theresa of Austria.

Question:what were the reasons for the escalating anti-British sentiment in the American colonies during the pre war decade from 1765 to 1775.
