Life and Soul of the American RevolutionOver the course years after the American Revolution, Americans typically viewed the revolution as American colonies standing up to the "big bad bully" that is Great Britain and rebel for their freedom and rights and that "these years are the most important in American history, indeed in the history of the world". That American colonist wanted to be viewed by Great Britain as an independent country. John Merrell thinks that the revolutionary period deserves to be looked at closer. Merrell insist that "the founding fathers would be surprised by our certainty, for they themselves were confused" confused about what they had started in the revolution. In the article merrell talks about how hard it was for john Adams and his friend, Jefferson, to make sense of their Revolution and that they "knew what generations since have largely forgotten" which is that the independence of America was unheard of and such a unbelievable event. Merrell suggest that we have to look past the American heroes to find the real reasoning behind it all. We can find the true impact of the revolution by looking deep into the social aspects in pre-Revolutionary and post revolution.With all the news about a rebellion against Great Britain more social groups started to come into play one of them being white women. In the 1700's women were not considered a person but as a possession males had, but the boycotting of British goods gave women a bigger role. Merrell suggest that woman played a major role in the boycotting of British goods as they would "collect hundreds of signatures from mistresses of families pledging never to drink foreign tea" and that they would also refer to themselves as "daughters of liberty". Women would also take to the streets and sew clothing for themselves and the American people so they would no longer need to look to Britain for clothing. The biggest change in the lifestyle of woman was when some men who were serving would leave their wives at home to run the farm or business. At this point the importance of women grew substantially, but women were not the only group who importance grew, so did African Americans. Merrell writes "for the first time, slavery, was a topic of widespread debate in America" meaning, many black slaves are now free and this is Americas first steps at completely abolishing slavery in American. Except that was after some of the slaves started fighting for great Britain because they promised the slaves freedom if they were to fight with them. Americans were starting to see their slaves leave and fight for the enemy and then they came up with the same idea to tell the slaves if they were to fight for the Americans they would be free. This showed the drive of the African Americans who would stop at nothing if they had a chance at freedom; they were not fighting for neither the Americans nor the British but for their freedom. The last group of people who importance really grew during the...
