Why did most floridians support Britain during the American revolution?
because they was the best
What accounted for part of American colonists' anger towards Britain prior to the American Revolution?
Robespierre DID support the American revolution. It was partly the American revolution that inspired him. Many French soldiers also fought in the American revolution. As for why; Robespierre belived that everyone should be equal and have rights, including the people in America. He always had his client's (for he was a lawyer) human rights as his best interests, so he belived strongly in the American revolution.
During the American Revolution, France supplied the new American government with money (gold and French Francs), soldiers, and the French Navy. After the Americans defeated the British at the Battle of Saratoga, the French realized the American colonists could defeat the British regulars, and that helping the Americans would potentially weaken their hated British rivals.
Monarchies by their very nature fear revolution. When the American revolution happened a fear spread through Europe. Catherine the Great was asked by King George to send Russian troops to help him in the revolution, but she declined fearing she may need them at home. In Britain people who supported the American revolution wore a powder blue ribbon or dressed in the color as a silent form of support. Anything else would have been considered…
The Anti Federalists were very enthusiastic about the French Revolution. Thomas Jefferson supported the Revolutions Republican ideals. The Anti Federalists were known for their support of France versus the Federalist's support of Great Britain. Although the Anti Federalists were for the Revolution, they agreed with the Federalists to remain neutral in the Revolutionary War between Great Britain, Spain, France and other European powers.
