Explanation:

The Civil war was the deadliest war in the United States of America, the president at the time Abraham Lincoln wanted to abolish slavery and the fight between the Union and The Confederate States became brutal, this was a very long war were many died from little young to elderly fought. In this line, the word "however" is an expression of contrast in the ideas, which makes "the fight lasted four years" the best answer from being opposite to the first sentence that says people did not believe it would last long

The actions that resulted from the Mecklenburg Resolves were the following: The provincial assembly gained government power; Laws passed by the British government were annulled.

Explanation:

The Mecklenburg Resolves are a set of anti-British resolutions that were entered into agreement by local authorities and influential citizens in Mecklenburg County (Charlotte), North Carolina in 1775. It is said to predate the actual and official Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. There is controversy surrounding the supposed existence of a "Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence" even more radical or declaratory than the Resolves. It is not known who signed the Resolves, but they were published by local papers in North Carolina and South Carolina in 1775. It is significant because it shows there was a grassroots push to independence as other cities and towns in North Carolina followed suit like Wilmington and Fayetteville in giving the Provincial Congress power and vacating or annulling British laws.

B. British troops and minutemen fired their weapons at each other.

Explanation:

On Lexington Green, in 1775 the first shots of the American Revolutionary War were fired and the battles of Lexington and Concord began.

They marked the outbreak of the armed conflict between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the American thirteen colonies. The first shots were fired by the British forces and the militiamen responded, casualties were on both sides.

I hope this answer helps you.

1. The provincial assembly gained government power.

3. Laws passed by the British government were annulled.

Explanation:

The Mecklenburg Resolves also known as Charlotte Town Resolves are the list of anti-British statements that were agreed by the local authorities and influential citizens in Charlotte in 1775. The Mecklenburg Resolves is believed to be the basis for the unproven "Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence” because there is a controversy surrounding this. It is not clear who signed this Resolves, but newspapers published the same. People wanted independence from the British laws and cancel them. They wanted to give power to Provincial Congress.

Options 1 and 3 clearly indicates these points. Other options are incorrect.
