American Revolution By: Anthony, Mary, Decardo, Matthew, Micah and Ilisa

The​ ​economic​ ​problems​ ​faced​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Congress​ ​deeply​ ​touched​ ​the​ ​lives​ ​of​ ​most​ ​Americans​ ​in​ ​the 1780s the war had disrupted much of the American Economy.

The​ ​Enlightenment​ ​and​ ​ineffective​ ​leadership​ ​influenced​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Enlightenment​ ​were​ ​direct​ ​causal​ ​factors​ ​of​ ​the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. These​ ​combined​ ​to​ ​form​ ​a​ ​climate​ ​of​ ​diluted​ ​institutional​ ​authority​ ​and​ ​a populace enamored with change.

.​By​ ​the​ ​mid​ ​1700s,​ ​the​ ​American​ ​colonies​ ​were​ ​separated​ ​from​ ​their​ ​British​ ​rulers​ ​by​ ​more than an ocean. The colonists' experiences settling the New World had given them a separate identity of self reliance and resourcefulness.

A​ ​main​ ​event​ ​that​ ​caused​ ​the​ ​american​ ​citizens​ ​anger​ ​to​ ​increase ten fold was the Boston tea party. The American colonist believed that Britain was unfairly taxing them to pay for expenses incurred during the French and Indian War. Because of that about 342 crates of tea was wasted and tossed off a sail boat.

The​ ​stamp​ ​act​ ​was one of the major cause of American citizens breaking point this event led to colonist terrorizing British tax collectors.

John​ ​Locke​ ​during​ ​the​ ​revolution​ ​he​ ​believed​ ​that governments should be to protect the natural rights of people which included life, liberty and property.

The​ ​declaration​ ​of​ ​independence​ ​was​ ​signed​ ​and​ ​the​ ​people​ ​started​ ​to​ ​stabilize.

​The​ ​people​ ​being​ ​to​ ​look​ ​for​ ​stability​ ​a​ ​new government is chosen, they chose a democracy to incorporate the citizens of the USA into decision making.

​The​ ​radical​ ​ideas​ ​go​ ​away​ ​they​ ​got​ ​what​ ​they​ ​want​ ​which​ ​was for the British to recede out of the U.S so they could be their own country so they stop the riots and conflicts.

Despite​ ​the​ ​hope​ ​brought​ ​by​ ​Independence​ ​and​ ​the​ ​best​ ​efforts​ ​and example of some of the leaders of the new nations, the goals of the revolutions of equality and unity largely went unfulfilled.

After​ ​three​ ​centuries​ ​of​ ​colonial​ ​rule,​ ​independence​ ​came​ ​rather​ ​suddenly​ ​to most of Spanish and Portuguese America. Between 1808 and 1826 all of Latin America except the Spanish colonies of Cuba and Puerto Rico slipped out of the hands of the Iberian powers who had ruled the region since the conquest.

It​ ​is​ ​a​ ​popular​ ​misconception​ ​that​ ​revolutions​ ​are​ ​usually​ ​started​ ​by discontented, oppressed masses of people.

The​ ​Venezuelan​ ​citizen​ ​became​ ​angry​ ​due​ ​to Spain trying to control all of Venezuela, not approving to the taxes made by the French and not approving the social ladder. The British helped the revolutionaries fight in Guerilla warfare against Spain.

​After​ ​the​ ​revolutionaries​ ​won against the economy started to fall which led to the fight against the Spanish monarch.

​Other​ ​gov’t​ ​during​ ​this​ ​time​ ​were​ ​the British which was a somewhat of just a monarchy

At​ ​​Carabobo​​ ​on​ ​June​ ​24,​ ​his​ ​forces​ ​decisively​ ​defeated​ ​Spanish​ ​and​ ​colonial​ ​forces,​ ​winning Venezuela independence, although hostilities continued.

he​ ​radical​ ​ideas​ ​of​ ​war​ ​ended​ ​when​ ​Carabobo​ ​happened​ ​and​ ​that​ ​led​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Venezuelan people to victory over the Spanish

José​ ​Tomás​ ​Boves was then chosen as the leader.
