This chapter is heavy on the abstract political ideas that the American Revolution was built upon; democracy, equality, freedom and liberty among others. These were the lofty goals of the revolutionaries but all of these ideas impacted different segments of society differently. Look at the document posted in this section as well and think how other groups were impacted differently by the American Revolution.

For this chapter write a TWO PAGE essay that describes: 1. the specific complaints the colonists had against the King in regards to these ideas and 2. how did marginalized groups feel about the same revolution as described in the document.

Make sure you quote Foner at least twice and quote the document once.

You can employ your internet research skills and do additional web browsing to learn more about the ideas that drove the American Revolution.
