America in the eighteenth century was a combination of contretemps, avarice, subordination, and contemptible barbarity. Geography, natural resources, and the hope for something better brought about a collision of cultures, among which were the French, Spanish, British, American settlers and Native Americans. In retrospection, we can see that the American Revolution began long before the shots rang out in 1775. In 1763, a different attitude emerged from the Americans. The hubris of the British led, indubitably, to friction. England, sending over British troops and expecting the colonists to subsidize their expense and allow the soldiers to live in American homes was a classic example of ...

President Trump’s Advisory 1776 Commission released its 1776 Report on Monday January 18, 2021. "In the course of human events there have always been those who deny or reject human freedom, but Americans will never falter in defending the fundamental truths of human liberty proclaimed on July 4, 1776.

The American Crisis is a powerful pamphlet series written by one of America's least appreciated founding fathers, Thomas Paine. Paine originally wrote and published the pamphlets between 1776 to 1783. George Washington was so moved by Paine's words that he ordered his officers to read the December 1776 issue to the entire Continental Army prior to going into battle, before he crossed the Delaware on his way to victory at Trenton, New Jersey. Paine's first pamphlet began with the immortal line "THESE are the times that try men's souls." Overall, the pamphlets bolstered the morale of the colonies and the Continental Congress while starkly illustrating to the English people the ...

The American colonists were determined to move west, ever since the first settlements in North America. Even before the first shots were fired in the American Revolutionary War, in the year of 1763, the British proclamation to halt westward expansion was met with colonial disregard. As increasingly more settlers moved out west, past the Appalachian mountain. This independent mindedness and desire for self-tenacity is precisely the thing that leads to the cause for independence. While westward expansion was beneficial for the young nation, it was a tragedy for the native tribal nations and the native environments.
