Bias
  • By the 1760s, however, the harsh new British
    policies spurred the growth of an American sense
    of community. A growing number of colonists now
    began to think of themselves as Americans drawn
    together by their hostility to British
    authorities. At the same time, colonial leaders
    began to take political action against what they
    felt was British suppression.

More Bias
  • King George III was a pig-headed man rather than
    a tyrantbut from America the distinction was not
    clear to the naked eye.
  • And the 13 rebellious states were recognized as
    the United States of America.
