Chapter 5 I: The American Revolution 1. What was the ideal of “homespun virtue” and how did it appeal to different groups in the colonies? The idea of the homespun virtue was reliance on homespun clothing rather than imported finery became a symbol of American resistance and it reflected as a virtuous spirit of self-sacrifice. Women who spun at home were hailed as the Daughter of Liberty. The idea of using homemade rather than imported goods appealed to the Chesapeake planters, who had a debt with British merchants. By reducing the purchase of British luxuries would reduce his expenses without his neighbors knowing he was in financial distress. Virginia leaders announced a temporary ban on importation of slaves, planters in Piedmont region where the institution was expanding ignored the request. Urban artisan, who welcomed an end to competition from imported British manufactured goods, supported the boycott. Philadelphia and New York merchants were reluctant to take a part at first but eventually went along with it. 2. Patrick Henry proclaimed that he was not a Virginian, but rather an American. What unified the colonists and what divided them at the time of the Revolution? What unified the colonists was that they believed they had similar culture as their mother country. They were divided due to the taxing of imported printing goods, and the Stamp Act was the first major split.

    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.
