Results of the War

Would your group have gone to war to declare Independence from Britian? Yes, because we don't think that the colonists should have to pay multiple taxes just because the British government needed money to pay for the French and Indian War. Even though a lot of people would die and if they did win the war they would still have a lot of work ahead of them to raise the right government to create a currency and many other things it takes to run a government and an independent country. It would be for the greater good to go to war with the British to gain freedom and to raise up their own form of government.
What were the major points that made your decision? The British were oppressing the colonists to where they considered themselves under the rule of a tyrant. They were taxed on British imports and had their trade with the rest of the world cut off so the British government could make some money while the colonists lost money that had come from trade. With all the taxes they were being forced to pay and all of the other useless laws that King George III oppressed them with we would have been surprised if they didn't go to war with the British.
Did all group members agree with the decision? Yes we all agreed that we would go to war against the British because they were snobs. They taxed the colonists just because they really needed money.
What are the alternatives to war? We could have backed down and done what the british wanted us to do, which would have been paying a ton of pointless taxes. The only reason we wouldn't have gone to war would be because a lot of people would be killed and because the colonists weren't really prepared for a war with one of the most powerful army in the world.
