Study Guide Exam 1 Essay American Revolution The American Revolution is one of the most significant events in American History. If it wasn’t for this specific event the United States of American would have never been founded. The events leading up to the American Revolution caused the colonist to realize that they wanted freedom and they needed to fight for it. The three ideologies of the 17 th and 18 th century, mercantilism, The Enlightenment, and the First Great Awakening, along with Great Britain’s imperialistic legislation caused the colonists to fight back and win a war that had three important turning points. Leading up to the American Revolution the colonists were inspired by three important ideologies. The first of these ideologies was mercantilism. Mercantilism is the idea in which a country increases exports and decreases imports in order to make more money rather than give it away to other countries. When Great Britain began to adopt this idea the Navigation Acts were passed in 1660. This legislation prevented colonists from trading with ships that were not at least 75 percent English. Goods could only be shipped from the colonies to other colonies or England.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
