The Revolutionary War was not revolutionary for multiple reasons. Benjamin Henry Latrobe drew in November of 1797 a painting of men playing pool. This is the first reason why it was not revolutionary, because in document 3, there was a painting of men playing pool. This didn’t change as a result to the war because lots of men played before and after the war. In document 4, it stated the economical status of Colonial Legislatures. William and Mary quarterly stated in 1966 the status of Colonial Legislatures; the congresses had money and were rich. But the congressmen were always rich/had money before and after the war, the war never impacted the political and economical position of congressmen. The 9th document talked about Native Americans and how they sought respect. In the northwest ordinance written in 1787, people/Native Americans wanted respect for the Native Americans. They wanted the whites to show them respect for they had taken their land without sharing any part. Before and after the war, nobody respected the Natives so the war didn’t affect their respect shown. The revolutionary war was not truly revolutionary because of these reasons. Men were painted playing sport, instead of seeking progress. These same men disregarded the Native Americans and gave no deserving respect; after it all, it was their home. Not much had changed except the land of free people being taken. The Legislatures were busy swimming in their money pile before and after the war. Their Revolutionary War seemed only efficient in taking over the land of

I think the American Revolutionary War was revolutionary because it was going from a monarchy to a democracy and that is revolutionary. Many people don’t believe that it was revolutionary. They had their opinions because we didn’t get rid of our pre-existing social or political infrastructures. People like to compare the American revolution to the French Revolution, which ended in the country having a whole new take on social equality and freedom to live as you please. They got rid of King Louis….
Was Atlee a truly revolutionary PM?
A revolution is defined as forcible overthrow of a government or social order for a new system. Atlee did not do this in my opinion.
Atlee and the Labour party were in power post World War II, for six years. In these six years they introduced many reforms. Whether these reforms were revolutionary is very debatable.
Perhaps, the most ‘revolutionary’ reform that Labour introduced was the NHS. Although there was liberal influence and consensus between the parties….
In order for something to be revolutionary, it must not only be new and innovative, but it must be a change in the system that, for the most part, is for the better. The American Revolution was certainly a period of time in which the country we know today underwent somewhat of a change and created a ripple in our country’s history. However, the American Revolution was not truly revolutionary. Taking into consideration the experiences of both racial and ethnic minorities in the new United States,….
The American Revolution also known as the Revolutionary War was a war that ended with many sacrificial deaths but, it was the beginning of the formation of the United States of America.

As everyone may have heard, recently the war between England and America has just ended. Through all the battles America has stayed strong and pushed through. We showed England that as an army, we could beat them and gain our independence. We persevered in the face of strong opposition and the might of the British. But how did this all begin and why did we, as a colony want to put an end to this? One of the main reasons the colonists started rebelling was because they felt they were not being represented….
The America we live in today would not be possible without the sacrifices of those who participated in the American Revolution. Without their bravery & fierce determination, we would not have all the freedoms we enjoy today. The Revolutionary War is the most important war in U.S. history.
There were several causes that led to this war. The prime cause was the growing demand of….
When you think of the Revolutionary War, a quick thought of weapons, attacks and military strategies come to mind. However, the war of words were not only influenced changes with this time period but also shaped the future of America and literature. During these conflicting times of obtaining freedom from British reign, American leaders pulled upon rhetorical devices to strengthen their fight for freedom. These persuasive techniques influenced beliefs, attitudes and even the course of America and….

The word revolution had been defined as overthrow of government: the overthrow of a ruler or political system. That is exactly what the Revolutionary War had successfully completed. There is no exact point during this period that would constitute the cause of the war. It could range from the French Indian War to the Stamp Act. Mainly the Revolutionary War began because there was a disagreement between Great Britain and the thirteen….
Beginning The Revolutionary War
Thesis: The American revolution was not only a battle with muskets and cannons but also a battle of philosophy and gaining trust.

A loyalist was a person who was still committed to Britain, they were the majority at the beginning of the war and the minority near the end. A patriot was a person who was united with the….
