Seven Years’ War 1 Running Head: Seven Years’ War Seven Years’ War Author Axia College of University of Phoenix Seven Years’ War 2 Seven Years’ War So begins another day living through this war. Life has been extremely chaotic. There is not time to mingle with others or simply enjoy life. Every family is struggling to make it through to the next day. It is depressing to walk down the street and see the families that have money, enjoying themselves while people like I struggle. We are glared down upon as if we are nothing. There is a large diversity here. Individuals have come from many different countries to America were the many different cultures are apparent (Davidson, 2006). It remains unknown to me how the lives of so many different people will survive here. Some came to America against their will (Davidson, 2006). I feel extremely bad for those that have been forced to come to America and be owned as slaves. Even some people who have wanted to come to America but could not afford it are here trying to work off their debts they incurred on the way over. I come from a very large family which is great. Many colonists come from large families because it is a big help for the family. We all help out each other and work as a team. Though I enjoy the large family I know that the increases in populations have been an issue. The families with so many children are often so busy and stick to themselves. The large families do not often get to interact with one another and make friends. We all go to Church on Sundays though even there we do not often associate although I believe it would be beneficial for us to communicate with one another. There are large levels of diversity within the system of classes. During the 18 century there are many different class systems visible (Davidson, 2006). The class system is based on the political and legal rights of the father. The class system is also based on what clothes a person is wearing or the church that the family goes to. Though I am unsure of why these classifications Seven Years’ War 3 are there that is just the way it is. They also classify based on how much money families have, their political influence, and their levels of education (Davidson, 2006). Families of upper class are called the gentry class which are the ones with large amounts of money, are well educated, and have a lot of influence within life (Davidson, 2006). The gentry’ class is in charge of everything. They are the ones with the highest levels of education, especially since they can afford the education even with many children in the family. This class often consists of families working as lawyers or doctors in the community. My family falls within the middle class. The middle class are the ones that are not well off but not severely struggling. Small farm owners and business owners fall into this category along with skilled craftsmen (Davidson, 2006). The workers from the middle class are the ones that are putting a lot of work in within the community. The gentry’ class is also treated better than the middle class though the middle class is the ones doing all the hard work. Individuals within the gentry’ class often has others working for them and doing all the work. The lower class is the ones that struggle the most and rarely own property or businesses. The middle class families are often large since they realize that the more people that are involved in their household work the easier it is to succeed as a family. The women in my family are the ones who tend to the household work such as cooking and cleaning. The men work in the fields or in the businesses that are owned by the family. Women will often help out in these areas if it is necessary. My father is the one who is responsible for the family but my mother makes sure that the family business is handled. Our house is very nice though not as big and expensively decorated like the houses of the upper class. We all work together to keep up the house and the needs of the family. The goal of our family is to keep improving our lives. One Seven Years’ War 4 area of life that is a bit difficult for us is the education for all of our children. The upper class can afford to educate all their children but it is difficult for my family to afford an education for all the kids so we are often homeschooled. The rapid rise of enlightenment has caused many conflicts (Davidson, 2006). This has been a large factor influencing the Great Awakening (Davidson, 2006). However, it was the conflict and controversy of the superpowers in the world that really controlled our continent during this time. The start of the war began in 1754 though it was not recognized till 1756. The war ended in seven years in 1763. It was amazing to see the fight between Great Britain and France while they tried to gain the control over the colonies within the eastern North American section (Davidson, 2006). Great Britain and France both believed that they were in control over the section of land between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian Mountains. Great Britain won the war and the area of land doubled while Ohio gained attention from the Indian and French fighting for control (Davidson, 2006). The effects of the seven year war and the British rule have greatly affected the colonists. During this time period the colonists were pushed apart more so than before. The individual colonies have all developed their own military. With the British increasing their control over us it was apparent that more problems were to come. There are times when I feel that staying in the house is best. Luckily for me I am able to attend school thanks to my family. I am hoping to become a lawyer and take care of my family. We have experienced many struggles thanks to the Seven Year War but my family and I have grown closer. I only hope that the different colonist families can bond together with one another before more problems arise with the increase in British control.
