1. What led to the separation of American colonial political culture from British political culture? The American Revolution and the resistance formed by it. 2. Make a list of the short and long-term causes of the American Revolution. (You may use bullet points here. Separate and label the long and short term causes) Short term Long term Higher costs in Britain Colonists’ demand for territory Increased taxation and restricted liberties for some colonists Resistance 3. What did the colonists find so objectionable about the Stamp Act? There was an extra internal tax involved. The Stamp Act required many documents be printed on paper that had been stamped to show the duty had been paid, including newspapers, pamphlets, diplomas, legal documents and even playing cards. There was a tax that people didn’t want to pay for pamphlets, cards and anything that needed stamping. It was ridiculous.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
