Results of the Revolutionary War


Would your group have gone to war to declare independence form Britain?
Yes, because we want to get our freedom from the British. They were very unfair to the colonists and refused them some of their basic rights. We wouldn't have tollerated this disrespectful behavior from the British. If we were colonists at  this time and date, we would have been proud to stand for our beliefs even if that meant going to war.

What were the major points that made your decision?
We feel as though it is our responsibility that if we were colonists at this time we would have stood our ground against the British, especially when the British forced us to pay for simple items such as, paper and tea. Also, we don't agree with their taxation on us when we had no representation in Britain.
Did all group members agree with the decision? Yes, we all agreed on going to war against the British, because of their unfair treatment to the colonists. Also, we all think being free is an important value as a citizen of the U.S.A.

What are the alternatives to war? Why or why not did your group choose these alternatives?
There were not very many alternate options to going to war against Britain if we wanted our rights. The king wouldn't listen to us no matter how many petitions we wrote. As colonists we didn't just go straight to war. We sent the Olive Branch petition to try to and stay away from war but still get our rights. War was a good choice even though many people died. We still got our freedom, and that is very, very important to us.
