King George Research Paper

Decent Essays
I chose King George because I wanted to know more about him. I was interested in this person when I first read about him in the anthology. I read that he was the king of Great Britain which means he is the most powerful man. George taxed the Americans which got the Americans very angry. After that he taxed the Americans on tea, lead, paint, and more items. This made the two countries go to war. George had an army of over a million soldiers that he used to fight the tiny American army. Later he got frustrated and really wanted to win the war after being beaten in battles. So, he was determined, but wanted to unleash his wrath which made him look insane.

In my research I learned new things that I never knew about King George. One is that George was born on June 4, 1738. A new soon to be king of Great Britain, but a horrible person to America. This is because King George is treating

Since I live in America, I would think a guy on the other side of the ocean taxing us, is aggravating. So, I think he is a bad person in my opinion. I would tell someone that King George was insane or that he taxed the Americans. I would want them to see that King George is a terrible person in the past, but for a reason. All this war and battle was caused by a good idea, a deal, a disagreement, and then to a war. The good idea was to tax the Americans on the British services. The deal was when America wanted the right to vote in Britain. Then King George disagreed and basically said,”You either pay the taxes or no more help from us.” At the end there was a war. So King George was reasonable, but later he wasn’t. I got interested in King George when I first read about him in the anthology. Then I learned more about him online. In the end king george really made me have an entirely different viewpoint of him because he was insane and because of many other facts that I never knew about

    The authors provide clear evidence on how imperialism can have a negative influence on Americans. They both believe that the anti-imperialists were against American policy because they argue that it was unfair to offer illogical reasons to occupy other countries. For example, Larrabee declares that the United States wanted to help the Philippines Islands to get rid of its weak powers so the U.S. can join this country to make a stronger nation. DeCosse also acknowledges that President Bush declared war by providing uncertain causes that were not; furthermore, that’s because Iraq was an oil-rich country and Bush wanted to benefit the U.S. economically. Anti-imperialism is an act of those who care about human nations rights of maintaining their territories, obtaining freedom, and defending themselves.…

    Kaiser Wilhelm II, the emperor of Germany (1888-1918), significantly impacted not only the governance of his country, Germany, but ultimately influenced the rising tensions between rival nations on an international level. Kaiser’s authoritarian upbringing caused dysfunctional relationships within his family and his British monarchy. This led to his hatred toward Britain. His erratic nature may not personally have decided that Germany should go to war, however he had put into place the structures which fostered a culture of militarism and hence an aggressive foreign policy for the outbreak of war, particularly in ousting Bismarck. Wilhelm’s bellicose and expansionistic motives to achieve a ‘place in the sun’, overthrew Bismarck’s realpolitik…

    After looking at both sides, I believe that the treaty was responsible for World War II. the treaty highly offended Germany causing them to want revenge, the treaty diminished Germany 's economy, and the treaty affected Germany 's military. All of these points show how the Treaty was responsible for World War II, and how it failed in many different ways. Also, these atrocities made Germany very vulnerable, and lead to the rise in power of Adolf Hitler. On the contrary, although the Treaty failed in many ways, some people believe that it was not responsible for World War II, and that the worldwide depression was the main factor.The factors that were bad outweigh the factors that were good, and the treaty did more harm than…

    He thought America’s involvement would only prolong the war and increase the destruction in Europe. The only advantage he noted to aiding the allies was that the United States would gain valuable time to build its defenses. He argued that sending war supplies to England, such as planes, strained America’s ability to defend itself. Lindbergh and The America First Committee, also, objected to the Lend-Lease Bill Congress was debating during this same period. (Source) One good point Lindbergh made was, if the nation intervened in Europe and the Pacific, it would create a need to protect supply lines and sea-lanes from Germany and Japan air attacks.…

(Campbell) Even though at fist FDR was very much towards being neutral he still wanted to support Europe in their efforts to end the war. By doing so he wanted to create some laws that would give the United States the ability to support Europe without getting involved right into the war, but still roped the United States somewhat into the war. "Most Americans detested the Nazi dictatorship, yet they favored…
