American Revolution 2 These are the 8 topics I would have liked to learn more about while reading and researching the American Revolution. 1.The British Government under Lord North’s rule. Frederick North, 2nd Earl of Guilford, KG PC (13 April 1732 – 5 August 1792), also known as Lord North, which he used from 1752 until 1790, was Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1770 to 1782. He led Great Britain through most of the American War of Independence. “Lord North's efforts to rescue the East India Tea Company from bankruptcy lead to the Boston Tea Party.” The Boston tea party was a turning event for the colonies. The colonist was against the high taxes that were forced on them. North decided on removing the 6-d. duty on tea, but the 3-d. duty would be kept. 2. General Washington George Washington (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799) commanded the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), and was the first President of the United States, serving from 1789 to 1797. ... Washington played a leading military and political role in the American Revolution. George Washington had the most military experience over the others. There was also a political advantage to having an “outsider” lead their troops. “Despite this seeming lack of experience in managing large army formations, Washington brought a number of strengths to his new position as commander of the Continental Army.”
