  • Here we are in 1763, the last year of the 7-years war, we join our friend Patrick at the war's end, excited for what it means for the colonists.
  • Oh, George I can't wait to get home! I bought some land and I'm going build my own farm!
  • Thats great Patrick, I'm really proud of you!
  • But soon after Patrick lost his farm, bcause of the proclamation by King George preseved those lands for the native. Pat lost every think and was forced to move back to Boston.
  • No, George you can't do this I put everything I had into this farm I can't leave!
  • Look I'm sorry Patrick I really am, but orders are orders, so you have to leave.
  • While in Boston Patrick joined the Sons of Liberty in order to protest the unfair taxes leveled against the colonies.
  • How is it lining your pockets with theft?
  • Haha! You poor colonists, need to learn your places and keep silent until spoken to!
  • Soon after the Tea Act, the Sons of Liberty, joined by Patrick, disguised themselves as indians and dumped the tea shipments in Boston Harbor overboard.
  • Ha, How do you like that brit? How you don't mind if we don't pay taxes on these!
  • Oh you horrible colonist will rue the day you ruined my tea time!
  • After the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Bunker Hill, Patrick and his wife fled to Philidalpia, in order to escape the British and hear the continental congress' decision.
  • Are you sure about this? Independence sounds great, and all but are we ready?
  • Yes Patrick, trust me everything will work out fine!
  • And so it was that the second continental congress decided to secede from Great Britain with the Declaration of Independence.
  • Can we hurry this up? I told Patrick that I would meet him at the tavern in an hour!
  • Keep it down Ben this is a very important moment!
