The American Revolution was very interesting. Mercantilism and the Navigation acts were major causes for the American Revolution. The participants in the revolution varied. There were many important battles in the revolution. France on the rebel’s side played a major role in the revolution. There were also a lot of important events in the American Revolution. Mercantilism was a way that the king made money on his colonies. The Navigation Acts were acts to enforce Mercantilism. The rules were that you can only buy from or sell to the king. The king controlled the prices and told the colonies what to make. Mercantilism and the navigation acts were the Main cause for the revolution.
The participants in the revolution were France, Rebels and some hired pirates who fought for the independence for the United states of America against England’s mighty army and the navy, the loyalist who were colonists who fought on the Kings side, some hired Indians and a lot of Hessians who were also hired as Mercenaries. The important battles in the revolution were The Battle at Bunker Hill because it showed them that they need an ally that produces supplies like gunpowder. The Battle at New York was important because it showed them that the rebels needed training. The Battle at Trenton was important because it was the first win for the rebels. The Battle at Saratoga was the turning point battle because it was a major win so France jumped in the war on the rebel’s side. The Battle at York town was where England surrendered.
France makes an offer to jump in the war on the rebel’s side if they declare independence and win a major battle against England. Later rebel’s win a major battle at Saratoga and declare themselves independent. France signs the treaty of alliance and sends troops and supplies to the rebels. The revolution became a world war so England surrendered because it was getting to expensive. Rebels get independence. The Major events in the revolution were the 2nd continental congress where all 13 colonies showed up. George Washington became their military leader. The rebels declare independence against England. The rebels win at Saratoga. France signs the treaty of alliance with the rebels. England finally surrenders to the rebels at the battle of Yorktown and quits the war. They sign the treaty between England and America at Paris. It was a world changing Revolution. The navigation acts and Mercantilism caused the revolution. Only 1/3 of the colonist fought against the king. The battle at Saratoga was the turning point for the war. Without France the Americans would have surely lost the war. The American Revolution gave birth to the United States of America. The American Revolution was very basic.
