Exciting extreme alarm or intense fear describes the life of mine and others. The screaming of war is like kids yelling for what they want. Religious people, are people who are against war; they are called Quakers. At one point soldiers started to not trust George Washington and they started leaving which led more and more people leaving. I have decided to reenlist because I have pride in my country, knowing my lifestyle, and I will always fight for my country.
For my whole life, I have lived in Boston. In 1773, me and some others went on to the British’s ship to protest. We threw 342 chests of tea into the Ocean. This had caused the Boston Tea Party. As I am serving in the war, young women at home are crushing on British soldiers, only for their handsomeness and red fancy coats. At one point Washington’s position was uncertain. Valley Forge was located about 18 …show more content…
Powell had documented that,” The committee of five congressmen stayed several weeks and was helping in getting more food.” This relates because, the Congressmen didn’t trust George Washington and then ended up helping us throughout the war. ‘The Congressmen didn’t trust him because, “George Washington's position was uncertain and so the Congressmen were unsure if they could trust him (Powell 149). The Summer soldier and the Sunshine patriot will, in the crisis, shrink from the service of their country (Paine 153). Busch had also documented,”from December 1777 to February 1778 over 4,000 soldiers had either left or died.” Tyranny, is like heck or under the ground and is not easily conquered. This is why we need more soldiers so we can fight for freedom. Fighting is extremely hard and you will lose many friends, but you will feel joy, if the right thing has happened.

Many people believe that the Boston Tea Party arose just because of the Tea Act that came into play in 1773, but in-fact, this major statement arose from two issues surrounding the British Empire in 1765. The first of the issues was that the British East India Company was at risk of going under and the Parliament was finding ways to bring it back. The second issue was that there was a continuing dispute about the extent of the Parliament’s authority. Many colonists believe that the Parliament went overboard with their power and the people were concerned about the future. Attempting to resolve these two major issues, the North Ministry only worsened the problem and produced a showdown that would eventually result in revolution.
Many people left the army or got sick and died. Everyone who stayed was valuable. In the background essay, it was said that "Washington was having trouble keeping his soldiers in the army." Soldiers left his army because their contracts were up and they did not want to stay any longer. Thomas Paine reasoned in Document D that "these are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country..." and he was right. Anyone who did leave was only there during the warm, summer months when

However, the series of events happened before 1775 already marked the beginning of the revolution war. During 1754 and 1763, there was a war between Britain and France which ended up with the victories British deeply in debt. Britain was weakened by the war and their economy was suffering, thus they started to impose tax from the American colonists. And that leaded to the the Stamp Act and the Sugar Act. The American colonists were not happy about the taxes not only because they were paying more money, but also because they were outraged and have no say in the taxes since they do not have a
...itish government. In Boston, the site of a bloody confrontation between British redcoats and Americans citizens less than 10 years before, emotions ran high. Boston was a center of agitation and finally on the night of December 16,1773, the course of world history was changed. A revolutionary event was on the horizon. As once patriot mournfully observed, “Our cause is righteous and I have no doubt of final success. But I see our generation, and perhaps out whole land, drown in blood.” (Liberty, 2) The rest is history.
After a decade of political and social disputes between the American colonies and the British government, war seemed inevitable. The Continental Congress tried to reach a political compromise but British taxes along with a growing presence of British regulars (soldiers) in the colonies, were fueling colonists talks of rebellion and the greater need for Independence. Deteriorating relations between the two came to a head on the evening of December 16, 1773, when sixty men disguised as Indians boarded three ships in the Boston harbor and proceeded to destroy and toss overboard more than 300 chests of British te...
Imagine, several men dressed as stereotypical Native Americans, dumping what is equivalent to $1,000,000 of stolen tea into the Boston Harbor. This seemingly unrighteous and illegal activity was a reality in the Boston Tea Party, just one of the many unjustified acts performed by the Sons of Liberty, a group responsible for so many violent and illegal activities, they can even be considered a terrorist organization. While many patriots believe that seceding from Britain is the best way for the Colonies’ success because the British have supposedly taxed the Colonies unfairly and exercised too much control over the Colonies, the American Colonies should stay loyal to Britain and pay their taxes at the level Britain requires. In order to prevent

Further, the strategies of the agitators and the establishment will also be provided.
The Boston Tea Party led to the creation of the US and the revolutionary war. Before any taxes were put on tea, the colonists had to deal with the Quartering and Sugar Act.

It worked and both acts were taken away although this angered Parliament and they ended up getting another act.

But what most people fail to realize is the great importance behind this protest. To fully understand a topic of history one must first acknowledge the actions behind it.

The Americans harassed the troops by yelling and shouting names at them and throwing snowballs and sticks. A crowd formed and in the noise and confusion, weapons were fired. In the end, ...
The French and Indian war had left the British economy in ruins. The secretary of state William Pitt had spent copious money on the war. In order to accommodate for the massive debt they had, the British thought it reasonable to tax the colonist on certain goods to help. Considering the British had fought for them, they saw no reason the colonist would oppose. Some of these taxes were the Townshend acts, the Sugar act, which was the tax on sugar and allowed conviction for smuggling without a court case. The stamp act, which was a tax on anything paper, and the Currency act. Some acts were added in hopes of bringing in money, others were not. There were the Writs of Assistance which allowed them to search cargo without a warrant, there was the
Depending on the situation, civil disobedience can either negatively impact or positively impact a free society. For example, the Boston Tea Party, which occurred in 1773, was a form of civil disobedience. The Boston Tea Party was a protest against having to pay taxes. A group of just over 100 people participated in this act in Boston, gathering together on ships, and protesting by simply throwing tea overboard. Hence the name, "Boston Tea Party." This act of civil obedience didn't necessarily disturb anyone's peace, but it did start a revolution, and it did cause thousands of dollars in damage, in their currency, at the time. According to the online article, "Boston Tea Party Facts," the damage that was done would be worth around $1,700,000 in today's United States currency. In that case, the Boston Tea Party in fact would have negatively impacted the "free society." Only due to the fact that it caused quite a bit of debt in their time.

Boston, Massachusetts is known as “the cradle of liberty.” (Stein, R. Conrad. The Boston Tea Party. New York: Children’s, 1996. N. pag. Print (pg. 28) (10-30-13)) The Boston Tea Party occurred on December 16, 1773 as a protest of the American colonists against the British government. Both the British and the colonists loved tea and it brought a substantial amount of money to the East India Trading Company. Due to the heavy debt incurred by the French and Indian War, the British government imposed new taxes upon the colonies. As a result, Great Britain passed the Tea Act. They didn’t want British companies to be hurt by the new tax so Parliament declared British companies exempt from the Tea Act. The Tea Act would force American colonists to buy tea from the East India Company saying “it was the cheapest around.” (http://www.socialstudiesforkids.com/articles/ushistory/bostonteaparty.htm (10-25-13)) The result was a protest known as the Boston Tea Party. When the tax was passed, it affected all of the colonies. The price of tea went up in the Americas a...
