During the mid 18th Century, English colonists appealed to the metropole for redress of various grievances. In this essay, I want you to consider the ethics and civics of those seeking change (later known to us as the Patriots). Who were these Patriots? What methods did they use to further their goals through civic engagement? What ethical considerations did they take into account in seeking redress of their grievances? Did the new United States (under either the Articles or Constitution) address their grievances?

Note 1: Successful responses will consider a broad range of evidence in support of arguments. Take a few moments to consider how you would respond by making a list of both "ethics" and "civics" related to the colonists and their grievances.Be sure to have a mixture of big/broad ideas and specific/detailed evidence in your argument.

Note 2: We DO NOT want summaries. Summaries will not earn a high grade. "A papers" utilize rule of three analysis (including strong rule of three thesis statements in the introduction and each paragraph of the body), specific and detailed historical facts as evidence, analysis instead of summary, consider change over time and historical geography (as necessary in response to the prompt), and properly cite both primary and secondary sources.

Note 3: Required length is 2-3 pages (introduction, 3 paragraphs of the body, conclusion).

With the help of these revolutionaries the 13 colonies of America rejected the British rule and were able to get independent in the year 1776. The opposed the decisions of the loyalist who supported and wanted to be under British rule. During the American Revolution not every people had chosen a side of either loyalist or patriots. Many of the people were unbiased. While most of the loyalist lived in the city of New York, the patriots formed a committee of juries known as the committee of safety. The committee was formed to get the authority to roam and travel freely in the te
itories and colonies controlled by the patriots.
Analysis
The patriots were the people from various social, economical and principled backgrounds who protested against the autocratic rule of British colonial power in America. They protested against the taxation system under the British rule where the American was taxed mercilessly without any valid reasons. The patriots cried for liberty and freedom from the dictatorial British rule. Some of the patriots who fought for the independence of America were the former president Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. They were also called the revolutionaries or American Whigs.
