We have finally arrived at the American Revolution. The origins are complicated, but seem to come down to one question - who had the right to rule? The British wanted to govern the Empire with clarity and efficiency. The colonists wanted to continue to have a voice in how they governed their lands. Both were right, but could not come to a consensus on how to share power. Grumbling led to protests, protests led to violence. Join us as we explore the origins of this important event.

1763 was a pivotal year, the end of one period of our history and the beginning of another. The capture of Montreal and the subsequent Treaty of Paris in 1763, brought the bloodiest war in colonial history to an end. Subsequent clashes with native peoples on the frontier would result in the Empire closing the west to settlement. These two events would sow the seeds for the next chapter in our nation's history, the American Revolution. If you like this podcast, please give us a review on ITunes.
