When you think of things like independence and patriotism, you probably also think about the American Revolution. "Independence" as a whole is such a beautiful and enchanting concept because it truly signifies the meaning of freedom and personal power. Independence, by definition, is "the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint". The American Revolution provided the people with that such lovely ideology and we still live by and follow it today! Patriotism undeniably came hand in hand with the revolution because the people were so thankful to have their freedom in the truest sense of what that meant. Vigorously supporting our country after the triumph of something as risky and brave as the American Revolution only makes sense! Mercy Otis Warren spoke about it by saying, "The progress of the American Revolution has been so rapid and such the alteration of manners, the blending of characters, and the new train of ideas that almost universally prevail, that the principles which animated to the noblest exertions have been nearly annihilated." Her powerful words, especially as a woman who worked as a political writer and propagandist during the sexist era of time that she was alive, still ring true to this day. Her passionate statement really says it all! The American Revolution was a defining chapter in history and without the events of that time, America simply would not be where it is today. We had to rebel and break free in order to experience freedom and the most genuine sensations of utter patriotism! Take this quiz if you remember learning the details in history class!
