Comparing Revolutions to the English Civil War, the American Revolution has the most in common. Both the English Civil War and American Revolution ignited into battle because of unfair taxes that was brought upon the people from their rulers. Charles I imposed taxes on towns in order to fund his expensive desires and show off his wealth, while the British Government also taxed the American colonies to pay off their war debts. This infuriated the people on both sides, who felt that they were being forced to pay unnecessary taxes. Eventually, this made the citizens rise up against their rulers, causing riots, battle and chaos. In addition, the French Revolution sparked up because the Government was corrupt and in crisis and Charles l wasn’t doing any better either.
The end of the English Civil Wars may not seem like justice was served. The Monarchy, Charles I, was punished accordingly by being publicly executed. However, the amount of deaths and property damage which occurred over all three wars was devastating. Many citizens and farmers were left in poverty after their houses were destroyed and by the end, more than 200,000 men and women died including 50,000 royalists and 40,000 parliamentarians. On the other hand, Oliver Cromwell, alongside the parliament, formed a new government that is now known today as a Republic. This had a huge positive impact on England as it started to lead England towards a fairer government, allowing all citizens of all classes to live more equally.
