American Revolution


Introduction: Your team has now been sent to the year 1775, North America, British Colonial America. As you might already know, the 13 colonies are about to submit their famous declaration to King George in 1776, demanding that Britain leave North American, allowing the colonies to govern themselves. Furthermore, you know that King George III of the United Kingdom refuses, thus setting the stage for a revolutionary event amongst all civilizations from then onward in history - governments derived from the power of the governed. Crazy!
