  1. Revolution. Independence. War. The American colonies have broken from Britain, but how will they govern themselves?

  2. Im pretty sure if you dig deep enough you can link Walpole as amongst the root causes of the American independence. We should put Nic Cage on that…. National Treasure 3 confirmed !

  3. When Britain taxed out tea we got frisky! Imagine what gonna happen when he tries and tax our whiskey!!

  4. well,since America comprises the totality of the contintents of North and South America….I believe the United States of North America would have been a proper name for english speaking americans

  5. The Colonists wanted Parliament to give them representation when taxing them. They weren’t against being taxed at all. There’s a reason they wanted “No taxation without representation” instead of just “No taxation”.

  6. I love it when I click on a video and on the comments I see my fellow hamilsquad making references and jokes (but we need more in the video)

  7. You called the Haudensaunee a confederacy of 6 nations though at the time it would have only been 5 as can be seen on the Hiawatha Belt.

  8. There was an Ad so long I forgot I was about to watch this and I was about to comment that I spent 60 dollars on a virtual XM-1 Chrysler when it ended

  9. So out of all the officers that were part of the USA army (militias included) the best person they had was the leader of the battle that started the French and Indian War which lead to the debt they had to pay off and complained about? Seems smart.

  10. I will ignore your letters to remind you of my love, da, da, da, da, dat, de, de, de, di yat, dat, dat, de, de, di, yata…

  11. I think you might want to relook at the Article of Confederation.
    Go to, the government of The United States of America 1781
    Under the athority of the Articles of Confederation the men that made and signed the constitution of the United States had no athority to make it the government.

  12. History of the USA: British colonists flee to a tax haven then rebel when the government wants to tax them the same as they tax everybody else on mainland British soil.
    Forward two and a half centuries, who are the ones most outraged by being taxed? The corporations that have most of their assets in tax havens overseas.

  13. “Shots have been fired”
    “The time is ripe”

  14. The American revolution caused the French revolution and that caused the Philippine Revolution that's a lot of revolutions

  15. Fun Fact: John Adams took some ideas for the Constitution from the Basques Fueros, including the idea that you needed a warrant to search someone's property.

  16. I thought the colonists were mad because the British were taxing them without say of where it'd go
    "No taxation without representation"

  17. Can you make a extra history about Mr. Alexander Hamilton, John Laurens, Hercules Mulligan and Lafayette?

  18. USA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  19. rhode island: lets choose the worst time be a country!

    britain: shut up rhode island go back to open rebellion

  20. hey, you forgot that whole "no taxation without representation" thing. If Parliment had given the colonies a vote in how much they get taxed, or at lest h ow the taxes get spent, it might have prevented the war.

  21. So… watching this after the fame of Hamilton the musical….when King George III is mentioned I just imagine him as my boyfriend….

    Don't judge I have my preference

  22. killing thousands native american= great history

    british soilder killed 6 people= massacarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  23. This is in error you all need to go to The T-Roh show and learn what really happened. You all have been duped by the British and Dutch monarchs

  24. The Articles of Confederation are still in effect and you can confirm this by going to the US Code and look at the section called Front Matters and see that the Articles Of Confederation are still listed as the general and permanent laws of The United States.

  25. You forgot to talk about John Handson the man who made the Articles of Confederation Ben Franklin only finished 2nd grade but of course was ok taking the credit for this. John Handson was the first black president serving only 1 year/ term as president. John Handson while in his one year term as president of the America created the "National Treasury", created "The Seal of the President" stamp and also made "Thanksgiving Day" a holiday!!! Just thought I'd share this.

  26. The Revolution was the most American thing possible: Let’s do some insane, radical, expensive thing because we want to be free! While doing this, we will forget that we might succeed, and will actually need to pay for shit.

  27. As far as it could the Articles of Confederation was a success, not a failure. It solved what problems that it could.

  28. There’s a great deal of evidence that the patriots were fighting a revolution in favor of the crown and against parliament. That the colonies were royal dominions to be governed by the will of the crown alone, that all of George III realms were equal dominions in an Imperial Monarchy, not Motherland Britain to dependent colony. This is the way the revolutionary leaders saw things, that all the realms were united only in that they share a monarch, so the British parliament, has no jurisdiction in any of the American realms just like it had none in Hanover.

  29. The reason the Boston Tea Party was so important is because of the quantity of tea.
    You think it might have been little bags or sacks of loose tea leaves, but no. When tea was becoming increasingly popular in Europe, they got a cool way of storing it from the Chinese. They would compact the leaves into blocks, about the size of a medium-sized book, so that it would last longer. If you wanted a cup, you would just shave a little off the side of the block. They were pretty expensive, because of how much tea was in them.

    The crates the Revolutionaries tossed into the ocean were filled with those tea bricks.

    The amount of money lost was in the millions.

  30. I had a teacher omce describe America just before and during the revolution as a rebellious teenager looking to assert its independence, and Britian as the strict parent who has no idea how to deal with this.
