The Revolutionary Founders and Patriots: the Genius of the People
In American history, Britain’s 150-year old colonies in North America became restless when the crown ignored their established rights and freedoms. Repressing dissent ended in an eight-year guerilla war and a movement toward independence. Early dissidents Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry were called patriots by some and traitors by others. In the revolutionary War, George Washington, Von Steuben and Lafayette led the military effort.
