Revolutionary Perspectives Katerina Pleskacova AP US History
The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women ► Written by John Knox (1558). A vigorous critique of the tyranny of "Bloody Mary's" reign in England, and a call to resist. A large portion of the Americans who fought in the American Revolution were adherents to Knox's doctrines as set forth in this document.
Perspectives from Native Americans… ► How did the Native Americans fight during the Revolution? ► They fought much as they did before the revolution. Many acted as scouts for the British others fought on the side of colonists. Other tribes did their best to stay neutral during the conflicts. Several volunteered as minutemen even before the breakout of the fighting, joined Washington’s army at the siege of Boston and served in New York, New Jersey and Canada.
… ► How did the colonists affect the Native Americans? ► They affected them in many different ways. European colonists brought their foreign diseases such as Smallpox and many people died. They brought new religion, new habits, new animals and they also affected their minds with different philosophy.
► Did any Native Americans support the colonists in Revolutionary war? ► Many tribes supported the colonists and many others supported Britain. It was a tough decision for them because they all wanted to make sure that they were on the winner’s side. They didn’t want to be punished if they had fought on the side of losers. After the colonies won, they didn’t distinguish between tribes that fought on one side or the other. Pontiac was born around 1720 in what is now northern Ohio. At the age of thirty-five, he became chief of the Ottawas, and an influential Indian leader in the Woodlands region. He had been friendly with the French, but allowed British troops to enter his territory after their victory in the French and Indian War. Conflicts flared up with British settlers, however, and Pontiac organized the series of attacks known as Pontiac's Rebellion or Pontiac's Conspiracy. He made peace with the British in 1766.
… ► Was the Revolution also civil war among Native Americans? ► Yes, we can say that it was kind of civil war because some Americans were for Britain and some were for independence.
