Survey of United States History 2110 Week 3 Road to Revolution French/Indian War Treaty of Paris (British win and force French out of the Americas) Proclamation of 1763 Boundary line for settlement west of the Appalachian Mountains British wanted to cut violence between natives and settlers, by keeping them separated. Proclamation angers settlers who fought for the land that they are now not allowed to step foot on. (Settlers start to question King George III, come to believe that they are second class citizens) Colonel George Washington joins Virginia militia looking for way to wealth. Turned down as officer, b/c British do not allow nonEngland citizens to be officers in the army General Braddock’s defeat, 1755 Force of 2,000 led into Pittsburg, General loses almost half of his soldiers (Brits are used to rank formation warfare, not Guerilla warfare, this hinders them in the war) This leads colonist to come see the British as weak as they struggle against the French) French/Indian War England spent 5million pounds (800 billion in this period), Brits in debt = taxing colonist. Stamp Acts, 1765 Tax on paper items, aimed at only colonist, direct tax to only make money = illegal taxation. Colonist angered, taxation w/o representation. Believe that if they do not have a delegate in Parliament that they should not have to pay. Parliament = 2 houses, LORDS & COMMONS Commons – represents all citizens under the king (English, India, and 13 Colonies) or virtual representation Virginia RESOLVES several sets of resolutions. Adopted by the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1765 except for the last two, which were considered too radical. Colonist should be considered full British Citizens, Only colonial legislatures can tax colonist, not Parliament Sons of Liberty, begin to terrorize tax collectors (tar and feathers, death threats, protest) works, STAMP ACT RESINGED Townsend Duties, 1767 – new taxes on imports Begin Boycotting = nonconsumption agreements (woman called on to participate) Troops On the Move, 1768 – troops launched to Boston, begins to change colonist view about Britain. Boston Massacre = Pure Propaganda kids throwing snowballs × crowd forms, throwing rocks × Brit soldiers panic, fire into crowd × 5 colonist dead Change on Views – Colonist begin to feel separated from the British, George Hues – knows 4/5 of dead colonist, 1 dies in his arms, goes on to serve in patriotic acts.
