The American Revolution, 1763-1791
The course begins chronologically with the end of the Seven Years’ War (1756-63), exploring the impact of that conflict on the British colonies and Empire. It then examines the various crises leading to American Independence, beginning with the Sugar Act (1764) and continuing through the Stamp Act (1765), the Townshend Acts (1767), the Boston Massacre (1770), the Boston Tea Party (1773), the Intolerable Acts (1774), and the Declaration of Independence (1776). After describing the War of Independence, the focus shifts to exploring the creation of the American republic, culminating with the implementation of the US Constitution (1789) and Bill of Rights (1791). In TDs students analyse a variety of primary documents related to the above.
