American Revolution

As appealing it might be, to hear the lullabies, to envisage the perfect settings drifted away from the world, the more unrealistic it seemed, back in time. Yes, even in the free land spaces of America, where free will and liberty today, echoes its loudest shrill, darkness did spread its expanse, there.

Dating back to the 18th century, unfolding the pages of the history, one was not simply seen stretched back, enjoying the sunbaths.  Big ideals with their even bigger ideas, did roll out the carpets for such new opening to unravel the beautiful beginnings. 13 colonies altogether, did defeat British, all allied with the French, to pave way for the supreme power, to which we today call, the United States of America.

What wasn’t so fancy as the lavish robes of King George III, were his unjustified imposition of Stamp Taxes. Vocally prominent and yet so logistical were the demands of the American colonials , who proclaimed, to abolish the taxes, substantiating it by the fact that  they didn’t even have a representation in the parliament, which was as easy as to say, ‘Why pay for bread, when not consuming it?”

This wasn’t just it, pouncing over the grounds of past, we find stained patches hovering over the battlefields. After the Stamp Tax, there was much more to come. And one could have sensed the chilling silence, before the rise of the massive storm. Protests steadily escalated to the Boston Massacre in 1770 and the burning of the Gaspee in Rhode Island in 1772, followed by the Boston Tea Party in December 1773.

The Americans then withheld its population under the protective umbrella by adopting the United States constitution, thereby establishing a strong national government.
