Economic - The resent war had increased Britain' standing in the world but at the expense of much of their assets (Tindall and Shi, 112). To overcome this, British prime-minister Grenville imposed a number of taxes on the American colonies. These caused large amounts of unrest that motivated people to rebel and ultimately loosened British control of the colonies to the point where it lost it completely. Social- The amassing taxes that had been placed on colonists lead them to feel as if their home country was against them. And it was in this mess that they saw their neighbors and relations around them as people with whom they had more in common with than those whom they had left in England (Tindall and Shi, 125). They all knew each other's lives and, they related to their struggles more and more with every passing day.

    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.
