|Q. Would your group have gone to war to declare independance from Britan? Explain.
||A. Yes, because they weren't listening to the colonists, and we tried to be nice about it, but it didn't work, and fighting was the only way out.
|Q. What were the major points that made your decision? Explain.
||A. The taxes were getting out of hand, and the protests and the Boston Tea Party were also getting out of control.
|Q. Did all group members agree with the decision? Explain.
||A. No, because Ryan would have wanted to resolve it peacefully to prevent unnecessary bloodshed. Erica and Amanda wanted to go to war because it seemed as if nothing else would work.
|Q. What are the alternatives to war? Explain.
||A. Negotiations, treaties, pettitions, and compromises. We choose to not use an alternative to war because it seemed it would not be effective.
