theenlightenment_ Patriots in each of the thirteen colonies formed a Provincial Congress that assumed power from the old colonial governments and suppressed Loyalism, and from there built a Continental Army under the leadership of General George Washington. Congress rejected British proposals requiring allegiance to the monarchy and abandonment of independence. Claiming King George III's rule to be tyrannical and infringing the colonists' "rights as Englishmen", the Continental Congress declared the colonies free and independent states in July 1776. The Patriot leadership professed the political philosophies of liberalism and republicanism to reject monarchy and aristocracy, and proclaimed that all men are created equal. The British were forced out of Boston in 1776, but then captured and held New York City for the duration of the war. The British blockaded the ports and captured other cities for brief periods, but failed to defeat Washington's forces. In early 1778, following a failed patriot invasion of Canada, a British army was captured at the Battle of Saratoga, following which the French openly entered the war as allies of the United States. The war later turned to the American South, where the British captured an army in South Carolina, but failed to enlist enough volunteers from Loyalist civilians to take effective control. A combined American–French force captured a second British army at Yorktown in 1781, effectively ending the war in the United States. The Treaty of Paris in 1783 formally ended the conflict, confirming the new nation's complete separation from the British Empire. (Part 2/2) 2w

theenlightenment_ The American Revolution was a political upheaval that took place between 1765 and 1783 during which colonists in the Thirteen American Colonies rejected the British monarchy and aristocracy, overthrew the authority of Great Britain, and founded the United States of America. Starting in 1765, members of American colonial society rejected the authority of the British Parliament to tax them without colonial representatives in the government. During the following decade, protests by colonists—known as Patriots—continued to escalate, as in the Boston Tea Party in 1773 during which patriots destroyed a consignment of taxed tea from the Parliament-controlled and favored East India Company. The British responded by imposing punitive laws—the Coercive Acts—on Massachusetts in 1774, following which Patriots in the other colonies rallied behind Massachusetts. In late 1774 the Patriots set up their own alternative government to better coordinate their resistance efforts against Great Britain, while other colonists, known as Loyalists, preferred to remain aligned to the British Crown. Tensions escalated to the outbreak of fighting between Patriot militia and British regulars in April 1775. The conflict then evolved into a global war, during which the Patriots (and later their French, Spanish, and Dutch allies) fought the British and Loyalists in what became known as the American Revolutionary War.

newjersey_lore Blair Hall was Princeton University's first #tudorgothicstyle dormitory. It was a gift donated by, John Insley Blair, who was a trustee. It celebrated the 150th year of the #americanindependence. It was completed in 1897, by Cope and Stewardson, who considered this their masterpiece. #njhistory #princetonuniversity #princetonnj #newjersey #collegecampus #clocktower #blairhall #njspots #njisbeautiful #njisntboring #explorenj #lookup #just_newjersey #njblogger #njlocal #njshooterz #architecture #architecturephotography #archilovers #architecturelovers #NJL 2w

erbsmatias Ainda dos EUA.
Boston-Massachusetts

Cidade deslumbrante, Lugar histórico para os americanos. Ali atrás é o Local onde a Declaração de Independência dos EUA Escrita por Thomas Jefferson foi lida para o povo em Boston. Em baixo da sacada em frente , um anel de pedras simples marca o local do Massacre de Boston acontecido em 1770. #Boston #EUA #americanindependence #Top

Normal Look Sideways - East
looksidewayseast Thomas Paine is one of Thetford's most famous children, and was one of the greatest political figures of his day. Influenced by his humble origins in a corrupt and violent world, he went on to write the internationally significant, Rights of Man. This helped stir up the spirit of Independence in America and the French Revolution #culture365 #thomaspaine #thetford #norfolk #frenchrevolution #americanindependence 1mon
