Literary Philosophy
Major Writers
The view of Man during the American Revolution was tough during this time because some people during the war supported Britain and the others supported the Americans during the fight. A man named Thomas Paine wrote a book called, "Common Sense" which impacted American Citizens to change their minds of whom they were rooting for whether they rooted for the British or if they didn't have a side to choose from. Because of this book written by Thomas Paine, the people were constantly debating whose side to choose because most were not sure who would win the fight. As we know more people in America at the time decided to root for the Revolutionaries and side with America which soon led to the American Revolution.
The view of Nature in the time period of the American Revolution was very dangerous. The reason that it was dangerous was because many conflicts were going on at the time like battles. Also another reason that the nature was dangerous was because people whom sided with different sides would argue on the streets and cause chaos which led to street brawls and massacres.
The view of God during the American Revolution changed the course of many people's lives. Some people that followed God and that were believers stayed with their creator or they left him. The reason some people left God was because times were tough back then because people were fighting constantly for the freedom of America, by doing so many lost loved ones and friends and they blamed the losses on God. Then there was the other people whom strongly believed in God and kept worshiping him throughout the war.
The view of society was the biggest "view" out of the four. During the American Revolution it was the Americans VS the British. The Americans fought the British in many battles throughout this time and this caused lots of conflict for people whom supported a side. The society was effected and was viewed differently by everyone whom were involved in the war. Because people whom fought for the Americans wanted freedom while on the other side the British wanted America for the King and wanted to keep the colonists from rebelling.
Thomas Paine
Thomas Paine was a very important writer during the American Revolution time period because he inspired Americans by writing the book called, "Common Sense". This book inspired them during the Revolutionary war to side with the Revolutionaries and fight against the British.
Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was also a very important writer during the American Revolution time period because he was the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence which said that the thirteen colonies were independent from the British. Not only did Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence but he signed it which showed a huge act of braveness to his country.
The Boston Tea Party
Lexington and Concord
US Constitution Signed
Declaration of Independence
Ideas
Rebelling
The founding fathers of America came together and decided to create a document saying that they wanted to break away from England and become their own nation. Thomas Jefferson wrote this document which is pretty much a break up letter from America to England. But the main reason this is important is because they signed their own signature which is a very brave move. If the British were to find out the people whom signed it in that time, those people would most likely be be-headed.

Before the Americans started the war they had to get the idea of rebelling first. The American colonists led by their General "George Washington" rebelled against the British after the Boston Tea party massacre. After this massacre the American Revolutionaries began to fight the British and many years later they won and became independent from England.

The Boston tea Party of December 16, 1773, occurred when a group of Patriots protested the monopoly of American tea that was imported. Recently granted by Parliament to the East India Company, they seized 342 chests of tea in an overnight raid on three ships full of tea and threw them into the harbor. Adams and a small group of Sons of Liberty disguised themselves as Mohawk Indians and stormed the ships and threw the tea overboard.
The Constitution of the United States of America was signed by 38 of the 41 Americans present at the result of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Those whom supported the constitution fought a hard-battle to win ratification by nine out of 13 the US States. On May 26th 1787, delegates who represented every state except Rhode Island met at the state house of Pennsylvania for the Constitutional Convention. The state house, known as the Independence Hall, earlier had hosted the signings of the declaration of Independence and of the Articles of Confederation and instead drew up a new scheme of government. George Washington, a delegate from Virginia, was elected as the convention President.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord, fought on April 19th 1775, was known as the shot heard around the world. The battle was the beginning of the revolutionary war in 1775. Prior tension had been building for many years between people of the American colonies and the British authorities, which eventually sparked the war. April 18th, 1775, hundreds of British troops marched from Boston to Concord in order to seize arms. Paul Revere and other riders sounded the alarm and militiamen began setting up for the attack. A fight on the Lexington town green sparked the fight, and soon the British were hurriedly retreating.
July 4th, 1776 The Declaration of Independence was signed giving America its upright freedom. Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson on July 4th. The president of Congress, John Hancock, immediately signed the draft. To this day the Declaration of Independence still grants America its freedom and is one of the most famous documents in English History.
