As A Result of The American Revolution, Americans Rejected
As a result of the American Revolution, Americans rejected too many old socio-religious, political, and economic systems.
Some of those systems were:
- They Rejected The System of Great Britain’s Colonial Rule
- Americans Rejected Great Britain’s Mercantilism Policies
- Americans Rejected Religious Inequality Between Christian Catholic And Protestants.
Okay, now let’s make a short discussion over these three points below.
1. They Rejected The System of Great Britain’s Colonial Rule
Before the American Revolution, the 13 colonies were controlled by the Empire of Great Britain.
But as a success of the Revolutionary War, the 13 colonies succeeded in achieving full independence from their mother country, then they became the United States of America.
The United States of America became an independent country, politically separate from Great Britain.
Here, throwing out English laws, Americans established their own rule with democratic principles.
2. Americans Ended Great Britain’s Mercantilism Policies
As a result of the American Revolution, Americans also rejected British economic policies; especially they abolished British Mercantilism policies from the newborn country.
Before the great event, using Mercantilism policies, Great Britain often used to exploit the 13 colonies’ wealth and enriched the mainland.
As a result of the revolution’s success, Americans created their own economic policies, which benefited all the people and companies on the continent, based on equality.
3. Americans Rejected Religious Inequality Between Christian Catholics And Protestants
During the colonial era, the British government tried many times to increase religious distances between Christian Catholics and Protestants.
Usually, they did it to fulfill their propagandas. For example, in 1774, the Quebec Act provided special privileges to Catholic people (alienating Protestants).
Through these moves, they intended to create religious distances between these two communities.
However, once the 13 colonies achieved independence, all these systems came to an end.
Even, in the 21st century, you will see very few religious inequalities in the United States.
