what effection did revolution have on the natve american
Weegy: The short answer is that the native americans were the biggest losers of the Revolution. [ The Iroquois Confederation who resided in upstate New York were decimated after the Revolutionary war by the American Troops. Member tribes of the Iroquois Confederation fought on both sides of the Revolution and therefore no matter who won the conflict it guaranteed as a political unit that the Confederation would cease to exist. Tribes of the Iroquois Confederation began a civil war amongst themselves and subsequently The American forces after the Revolution ended turned their attention towards the Iroquois Confederation and burned their villages forcing them to flee, because several member tribes joined the British during the Revolution.

what effection did revolution have on the natve american
Weegy: During the American War for Independence, many Native Americans sided with the Americans, but a majority supported the British. The crown promised to protect native lands from encroaching American settlers. [ Many Native Americans were partially assimilated into the American colonies One of the most well prominent was Thayendanegea, or Joseph Brant, a leader of the Mohawk tribe. He was educated at the Moor's Indian Charity School (predecessor of Dartmouth) in 1761 where he learned to speak write and read English. He worked for the British as a translator and fought with British forces during the war. Initially both sides in the war urged the Native Americans to stay out of the conflict. But by 1776 both sides courted the Iroquois Confederacy. Brant succeeded in getting 4 of the 6 Iroquois tribes (Mohawks, Cayugas, Onondagas, and Senecas) to fight for the British, and warriors from the other two tribes, the Oneidas and Tuscaroras, fought with the Americans. This forever dissolved the Confederacy which had kept the tribes a strong force in the north. Other Native tribes in the south also took sides. ] (More)

describe the pre-war event of the french and indian war
Weegy: In A Nutshell In the 1750s, the conflicting ambitions of three great empires—France, Great Britain, and the Iroquois League—crashed together in the backcountry of Pennsylvania. [ In the resulting war, fought between 1755 and 1760, the future of the North American continent was largely determined. Superior organization and strategy allowed France and its Indian allies to dominate the first two years of the war. But William Pitt, named British secretary of state in 1757, then increased Britain's financial commitment to the war, giving British soldiers and their American colonial allies the resources they needed to defeat the French in battle by 1760. In the Treaty of Paris, signed in 1762, a vanquished France surrendered Canada and all territorial claims east of the Mississippi River to Britain. Britain also won control of Florida, ceded by Spain (a French ally). Flush with success, British policymakers came to believe that their control over the North American continent was firmly established. But Native Americans who had fought in the war in alliance with Britain believed that they had won the right to territories west of the Appalachians, while American colonists soon objected to British postwar policies aimed at consolidating their hold on North America. As a result, while the French and Indian War removed one great power from the contest over America, it did not truly end the dispute over control of the Pennsylvania backcountry, nor did it guarantee Britain's control over the continent. In fact, tensions between Britain and its American colonists that grew out of the war and its aftermath led, in just a few short years, to the American Revolution. Read more: ] (More)
