    1750-1918 Key events

  • French and Indian War begin

    The french and Indian war was an important event because, it was a war that determined either the british/french would win the land of the natives or would the natives keep their own land. The war started out the british wanting the french land in North America but soon spreaded toward the Native lands. I think this was an important event because, it showed who started taking over lands so early in the worlds history.
  • Industrial Revolution

    The Industrial Revolution started from about the 1760's to around the 1840's. The revolution was a turning point in mankind, in a short amount of time we had gone from horse and cart to cars and planes, candles to lights. We started excelling in machinery and factories, work loads had been increesed majorly. People started moving from the farm lands to densly populated cities and towns. There was downsides to this, guns and firearms had been inevented, killing and the deaths had increesed.

    The Declaration of the Rights of Men wrote about hat all men were equal and should be able to vote amongest the government issues.
