Looking at Chapter 6, and the primary source readings pertaining to women during the era, please answer the following questions based on your understanding and interpretation of the historical developments that have taken place. Please respond to two other student responses with analytical feedback as you have done in previous discussions.
- Not everyone supported the independence movement within the colonies. Explain who supported independence and who did not. Be sure to include a discussion about how socioeconomic standing, race, religion, and gender affected an individual’s support for or opposition to independence. Also consider why the other regions of the British Empire, such as Canada, the Caribbean islands, and Florida, did not also rebel and seek independence. How did women in particular react to the language of freedom and liberty?
Please submit your responses by Saturday, 8:00PM!!!
