Throughout the years the American colonists have changed their attitudes towards the British politically, economically, and socially by the 1775. Politically the British and the colonies were loyal and support to each other between 1700-1763.
1765-1783 was the time during the American Revolution. Prime example of Liberty or being sheltered. Settlers of Britain had came to this new land and made many new settlements for Britain.

I believe that George Washington did an outstanding job during his time as the leader of the Continental Army. Despite the fact that George Washington did have his failures, his brilliance and numerous successes can't be overlooked. Washington was faced with an incredibly hard task of leading an army that was subpar in almost every aspect in comparison to the British army.
