Week 1 Notes Monday, March 14, 2016 10:32 AM Modern Era: 1750- 1950 The various revolutions gave way to democracy North American Revolution  When: started 1776-1787 (Declaration of Independence)  It was a long process of figuring out how this new country/government will work  Why: to break off from British rule.. Britain wanted more control and money from their colonies. Britain ran out of money from fighting France in the Seven Years War, so they started heavily taxing the North American colonies w/o telling them. "taxation w/o representation" it gave a sense of nationalism  Enlightenment idea played a crucial role. Independence and Democracy  Outcome: united 13 colonies into one democratic country, created a model for other countries  Land-owning white men could vote (15%)  Bankruptcy of French  Continued pre-revolutionary political institutions  New democracy political system  Bill of Rights  Said all men were created equal but only white men could  More of a movement or an evolution instead of revolution. They just took their current beliefs and values and codified them into the law. French Revolution  When: 1789-1850 national assembly came together and said "men are born and remain free and equal in all rights"  Why: conflicts within France b/t different social classes, corrupt system. Clergy and nobility were not taxed, they made up 2%. 98% being the commoners were heavily taxed because of the Seven Years War.  Enlightenment ideas  Outcome: Brutality- Reign of Terror: (40,000 people executed). Napoleon was in charge and wanted to be the emperor which is the complete opposite of what people were fighting for  Women had now voice, men feared them and closed all women's groups  Spread of democratic ideals  More revolutionary than the North American revolution because they completely over threw their government and basically started from scratch, changed everything they previously knew. Both of these revolutions set an example for future revolutions in other countries. Haiti (1791-1804)  French colony  African slaves- 500,000 majority  Small population of white population- 60,000 minority  Small mixed population  It started because  There was a rumor of slavery ending  Enlightenment ideals  Desire for social and political independence  Consequences  All whites were killed  Their plantation system of sugar and coffee is destroyed and all land was redistributed b/t former slaves and free blacks  Economy tanked  Stopped mass production of coffee and sugar  Independence debt (pay France the money France would've made off of this colony)  Isolationism  Few workable democratic institutions  They Became a nation of small scale farmers  End of slavery  Not full equality Abolitionism (abolition of slavery) late 1800s, 1890  Protestants and Quakers said it was a moral issue, against their religion  Enlightenment Ideals, legal issue, it takes away human right  Industrialized areas so they were not needed for farming labor, it's no longer economically efficient, economic issue. Technology is more advanced/efficient Women's movement, Feminists movement  Increase in work force (economic)  Enlightenment Ideals (legal)  Women got the right to vote but there still was not full equality
