About this video

In this class, Ralph D. Anske discusses the underlying causes of the American Revolution. He emphasizes that new taxes imposed by the British provoked discontentment and upheaval among the colonists, giving rise to the slogan "no taxation without representation."

According to Anske, the North American colonies enjoyed a strong sense of community, which made it possible to build a nation under one vision.
