Reasons for the American Revolution
The King of England and Parliament were the direct causes of the
American Revolution, because of their demands on colonists and harsh reactions
after the colonists failure to meet their ridiculous expectations. These demands
were far greater than any loyal American was able to provide.
The taxes placed on Americans were so heinous that the sugar in their
mugs was taxable. Survival while paying these taxes was slim to none. How could
Britain force such severe taxes on the greatest asset of the crown. The Stamp
Act forced the colonies to purchase a stamp with prices of upwards of four
pounds on all legal papers, advertisements

Political revolution didn’t occur in my country, I think the revolution happened in United State is a good thing, some of the good things about the American revolution are America gotten its independence, and brought about a freer where there wasn’t a monarch on the throne, the governor was the one who judge every one and do whatever he want, the main cancer of the American is not to be punished without reason or paying too much tax without any reason or protection, because that time British use to send the army to collect money from the colony with no reason or any benefit for the people.

Wood, Gordon. The Radicalism of the American Revolution. Vintage Books, a Division of Random House, Inc., New York, 1991
Gordon Wood describes the American Revolution as a journey from paternal colonialism to an egalitarian democracy. His contention is that the American Revolution does not seem to have the same kinds of causes that Revolutions usually display. There were no big social wrongs, no class conflict, no severe poverty, or gross inequitable distribution of wealth. Wood claims our revolution was not about independence as most history books claim but about the radical transformation of the American society

Many early on followers of the French Revolution were uneasily aware of the role that slavery played in France’s colonies, some of them formed a group called the Société des Amis des Noirs (“Society of the Friends of Blacks”), which discussed plans for gradual abolition of slavery, the ending of the slave trade, and the granting of rights to educated free colored men from the colonies (one of the

During the Scientific Revolution scientists such as Galileo, Copernicus, Descartes and Bacon wrestled with questions about God, human aptitude, and the possibilities of understanding the world. Eventually, the implications of the new scientific findings began to affect the way people thought and behaved throughout Europe. Society began to question the authority of traditional knowledge about the universe. This in turn, allowed them to question traditional views of the state and social order. No longer was the world constructed as the somewhat simple Ptolemaic Model suggested. The Earth for the first time became explicable and was no longer the center of the universe.

The most important factor was the Bessemer process. Henry Bessemer and William Kelly discovered a new way to convert iron ore into steel, which led to a rise in steel production in the second Industrial Revolution. In 1767, the textile industry was invented by steam engines, which were used to make cloth. The spinning jenny was introduced by James Hargreaves, which was a machine that increased the amount of cotton yarn that could be spun. In 1779, one machine called the mule was introduced by Samuel Compton who combined the jenny and the water frame machines to produce 300 times as much yarn than on a

Similarities of the American and French Revolutions
Occurring during the latter half of the 18th Century, the American and French Revolution were linked through similar circumstances and ideals. Born out of dire economic conditions and a desire for liberty, they both brought about constitutionalism in their respective nations. Just prior to the Revolutions, the citizens in both France and America were suffering under the weight of tax burdens. Along with the immense influence of the Enlightenment ideals of the time, out of both revolutions formal documents were written addressing the natural rights of citizens.

This paper will compare and contrast the French and Indian War, American Revolution, and the War of 1812. All three wars were fought over land or expansion in one form or another. The French and Indian War was fought because both countries believed they had the right to the Ohio River Valley. This caused Britain to tax the colonist and place restrictions that led to the American Revolution. The American Revolution gave the colonies their freedom from British rule and the ability to form their nation and laws. Great Britain never respected the United States as a sovereign nation.

The American Revolution was a violent revolution between the British and 13 American Colonies. The American colonies wanted to break away and form their own independent nation. “No taxation without representation” is a quote from the American colonies stating they would not be taxed by the British without their consent. As American colonies became more and more self-sufficient and self-governed they became less tolerant of the “mother land’s” harsh taxations and lack of participation or involvement in British parliament. In 1765, Americans decided that they would no longer pay taxes without elected representation

The new forms of communication competed with books as sources of amusement and enlightenment. New forms of communication and new modes of transportation made American society increasingly mobile and familiar with many more regions of the country. Literary voices from even the remotest corners could reach a national audience. At the same time, American writers—particularly writers of fiction—began to influence world literature.

Many politicians, such as Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, had opposing views on how the country should achieve this result.

colonists obey trade regulations, and passed the Sugar Act in 1764 (Davidson, 2006). The British colonists were taxed on molasses imported to the colonies because of the Stamp Act. In 1765 the Stamp Act extended the tax to included colonial taxes on newspapers and legal papers (Davidson, 2006).
The American Revolution found the American colonist challenging the most powerful Empire in the world, which was the British Empire, after repeated conflict. The Americans won the battle of Yorktown, in Virginia, on October 19th, 1781 (Davidson, 2006).

“The "Reagan Doctrine" was used to characterize the Reagan administration's (1981-1988) policy of supporting anti-Communist insurgents wherever they might be. In his 1985 State of the Union address, President Ronald Reagan called upon Congress and the American people to stand up to the Soviet Union, what he had previously called the "Evil Empire": "We must stand by all our democratic allies. And we must not break faith with those who are risking their lives--on every continent, from Afghanistan to Nicaragua--to defy Soviet-supported aggression and

idea of having independence from the King and England because of the strong arguments in Paine’s piece. They realized that it is ridiculous for a king to rule a country or colonists from a this far distance of 1000 miles and then to make them pay tax even if they have no say rights and say in the government. His strongest point, however, is that the British’s control over the colonies is self-serving. He says that England is only looking after its own interests even if it means that the colonists have to suffer and if they do not separate from their mother country they will not be able to grow to a good nation. This is why it is necessary for the Americans to win the war and become independent.
Overall many different aspects incensed the colonists and made them to rebel against Great Britain. The American Revolution was an effect of taxation, restriction of freedom and passing on of colonial political ideas. If these three cases wouldn’t have taken place the Colonists and Great Britain might not have separated from each other.
