The Never Ending Revolution

The Paris treaty

We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” Benjamin Franklin, at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

The American revolution isn’t just about countries fighting against each other. It is more of a fight for liberty, or for the rights of colonists and equal treatment that everyone citizens receives. Of course, there was death and violent, but the bumpy and devastating road of revolution has been crossed over. This video, created by me and Carina, explains the American revolution using plain english. It highlights key events such as the famous “Boston tea party” to the “Paris treaty”. Starting from furious colonists rising up to England, to the Lexington and concord battle of America and England. Some might say that the revolution was excessive, or that there wasn’t a significant change, however, others might argue the huge difference through history. Click the following video to start your astonishing journey of the American revolution. What is your opinion about the American revolution? Is is worth all the scarifies and time?

    Julia, I really enjoyed your video, it’s really specific and brief. Our revolution has many similarities; for example, our revolution has the same cause, the American revolution started because of money, and t the French Revolution started because of Money too. American Revolution and French Revolution ha many differences too. America didn’t really change after the revolution, but France completely changed into a democratic country. Overall, your video was really good.

    I enjoyed the way you did you introduction, it had a great hook but it also got to the point. You also gave the audience a  question to think about related to your video. One way thing that the American Revolution and the Cuban Revolution have in common is that after the revolutions few things changed. For example after the American Revolution; Women still didn’t have many rights, Rich white men were still in charge and more. In the Cuban Revolution, the people still didn’t have much power or say in who their leader was.  A difference between the revolutions is that the American Revolution seems to be based on money. where the Cuban Revolution was based on a change of leadership to promote better living conditions.

    Julia, your video has explained lots of things, and it is interesting. Our revolution is similar because the cause of the revolution is because of the taxes. But they are also very different because after the French revolution that power is still control by the leader, not ordinary people.
