Road to Revolution

About some key people, conflicts, and coperations

Introduction

“It is not in the still calm of life that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. Great necessities call out great virtues."

~Abigail Adams

This is what the daughters of liberty would say, would do, that people wish they had the courage to do, their boycotts also demonstrated their loyalty. The Daughters of Liberty, the Boston Massacre, John Adams, and paul revere all had a big role in the events occurring in the pre-war.

John Adams

John Adams was born on October 30, 1735. John Adams went to Harvard to become a lawyer, he then was a lawyer for 2 of the british soldiers that killed 5 boston residents and injured 3 more in the boston massacre. Adams believed that besides his own beliefs or ideas that everyone deserves a fair trial. that's precisely what he did, gave a man a fair trial. One of the men the Adams defended was Captain Preston. After that he became a critic on the british forcing higher taxes on colonial america. He is intelligent, opinionated, patriotic, and blunt, these are some of the qualities that made him significant to his part in the revolutionary war. When the American revolution rolled around he was the main guy up front and center, he became a leader. Which lead him to be the first vice president in 1789-1797. Adams also helped negotiate the Treaty of Paris (1783), which officially ended the American Revolutionary War (1775-83). John Adams died on July 4, 1826.

Paul Revere

Paul Revere was born on January 1, 1735. Paul Revere mostly known for his long ride warning everyone that the british were coming in the poem "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" by Henry Wadsworth. First Paul received an education in writing before going to join his father's trade, he then started his talent as a craftsmen. He was known for his industrial perspicacity (the quality of having a ready insight into things). He became one of the preeminent american goldsmiths, it's a term that had every phase of the eighteenth-century precious-metals craftsman’s art. Paul Revere died in May 10, 1818.

The Boston Massacre

The Boston Massacre was a street fight between a a group of patriots throwing snowballs sticks and stones, and a some british soldiers, 5 boston residents killed and 3 injured, which lead to a big campaign, and trials. The Daughters of Liberty formed and more and more boycotts started happening which lead to the boston massacre, then after the conflict of the boston massacre the correspondence formed and the sons of liberty took place in the boston tea party. A few important people that were involved in the boston massacre were: John Adams- lawyer for 2 of the british soldiers that were involved in the shooting part of the boston massacre which killed 5 people. Hugh White and Hugh Montgomery- The main roles and starters in the Boston Massacre. Edward Garrick- first guy to get shot in the Boston Massacre. He was demanding payment from the british officer it then soon escalated into violence when the british soldier struck Garrick with his musket knocking him to the ground. William Wemms, Thomas Preston, James Hartigan, William McCauley, Hugh White, Matthew Kilroy, William Warren, John Carrol and Hugh Montgomery- All the soldiers that were involved in the boston massacre. Some consequences that i believed didn't have to happen was people dying and so much disagreement, which lead to such a bigger ordeal, that could have essentially been avoided.

The daughters of liberty

The daughters of liberty was started because of women not liking what the british were doing and wanted to make an impact that would leave a mark as one of the first ideas of rebellion. This group of rebellious ladies would show their loyalty by boycotting english goods, they would learn to make their own, would not drink tea, and would even reject british "dates". They were patriots, these women brought the attention to politics that women can be just as useful. They also made women relevant in the pre-war and in revolutionary war.

Conclusion

These all tie together because they all had some participation in the revolutionary war.

John Adams is connected to the Boston Massacre because he was a lawyer for some of the soldiers that had shot some Boston residents. Daughters of liberty are related to the revolutionary war because of their boycotting to provoke the war. In conclusion they are all connected in some way, and they all wanted the same thing. Freedom and independence.
