In 1754, the British and French began a war that would determine which country
would control North America. By 1763 the British army and British
colonists had beaten the French. Fighting together they had won half a
continent. By 1775, just 12 years later, the British army and British
colonists were fighting again. Only this time, they were fighting each other!
What caused this turn of events? Why did loyal Englishmen become rebellious Americans? The answers to these questions will be the focus of this activity.
