The American Revolution
(Two video's and two assignments)

 

As you watch these video's try to get a sense as to the attitudes of most people. Very few people could imagine a nation that was not ruled by a king of some kind of dictator. In the beginning the American people loved King George but as the ideas of the Enlightenment took root in the minds of the Americans we began to change our attitude. Finally we came to the conclusion that we did  not need a king. In fact, the United States was the first country founded on an idea tather than some military conquest. We were the first people who believed that ordinary people could rule themselves. We did not need a king.
