I am Benjamin Franklin; I was born on January 17, 1706, in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. I am a founding father, polymath, inventor, scientist, printer, politician, freemason, publisher, and diplomat. I helped to draft the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, and he negotiated the 1783 Treaty of Paris which ended the revolutionary war.
I am Thomas Paine the author and publisher of Common Sense. I was born on January 29, 1737 in Norfolk, England. I am a writer who wrote about political topics and crisis papers during the Revolution. As a patriot most of my writings were used to promote the patriot mindset and need for independence.
Common sense was written on January 9, 1776 to convince others to rebel for their independence from Britain this book convinced neutralists to become patriots and it amped up the continental army and gave them energy when fighting.
I am John Adams I was born 1735 in Massachusetts. I am a leader of the American Revolution, and served as the second U.S. president from 1797 to 1801. Adams became a critic of Great Britain’s authority in colonial America and viewed the British imposition of high taxes and tariffs as a tool of oppression. During the 1770s, he was a delegate to the Continental Congress. In the 1780s, I served as a diplomat in Europe and helped negotiate the Treaty of Paris, which officially ended the American Revolutionary War.
American colonists who remained loyal to Britain throughout the American Revolution because of economic benefits, trade or they were simply afraid to go against the British army. About ⅓ of the colonists were loyalists. In 1776 multiple strict laws were passed against loyalists; they were harrased and their proberty would be vandalised.
The largest group during the revolution in the colonies were the neutralists. Some joined to the British to get military victory or fame, they were looking to make profit from selling their products, or they felt they had to because they were originally British citizens. Yet in the long run the patriots won over their support with and changed everyones view with the writing of Common Sense by Thomas Paine.
American colonists who rebelled against British control, fought for their independence and supported the U.S. continental congress instead. Their reason for doing so is because of the taxes and laws being imposed on them when they weren’t living in england and how they didn’t have a representative or voice to represent them in Parliament
