Go Patriots!!

My name is Anne Smith. I am a thirty two year old mother who moved my whole family from England to start a fresh life in Chesapeake Bay. I am siding with the Patriots because I want my two young kids and my older son to grow up in a free country, without worrying about Britain’s troubles. My husband James, and my son John are both currently fighting for the Patriots. I do not understand why some people are still siding with the British. We left that country for a reason and I plan on never turning back. I cannot believe the way those cruel English are fighting. I do not believe that this is fair, Britain should mind their own business and control their own country and leave us to control our own problems! Does Britain not realize that we want to be left alone for that is why we fled England?



The Patriots

I chose to be a patriot because of their unique battle techniques and their never ending persistence to end the war. My wife and my son, Karl lives on a cow farm in chesapeake Bay. The british are very oppressive and have many taxes. They tax everyday goods like tea, types of paper, molasses. Also the British have taken away many of our, the colonist’s rights. The British took away the right to be involved in government.

My name is Jeremiah Smith and I am a young potato farmer who decided to help in the war. I chose to be Patriot in the revolutionary war after long debate, because of their determination and strong strategies. They have everlasting persistence shown through the fight they put up when all the acts and taxes were enforced upon them. The first example is shown in the tea act. Us colonists drink tea one or more times a day and it gets shipped all over. The British are in debt, so they decided to put taxes on our tea. The taxes cost us lots of money, so we began to fight back. The British got scared and lowered the taxes, so that we would be less mad but still have to give them money. We realized this and fought back again by dumping the tea in harbor and boycotted it. Because of this the British gave us more taxes with the stamp act and townshend. Again we stayed determined and fought back until both those acts were repealed. All these examples show one of the reason I joined the patriots, through all these things we kept fighting and finally got rid of the taxes instead of letting the British rule over us and give them all our money. The next reason i became a patriot is because of their unique, yet sufficient fighting tactics. I know we will win the war because of our great generals and hit and run techniques. When the British line up in their rows of people we run by and shoot them,  then escape before they can shoot back. If they chase us we have a trap of people hidden with loaded guns so when they are running and not looking to shoot we kill them all. It is risky because they might see us but it pays off big.. So overall those are the reasons why i became a patriot and you should too.



I want to get rid of the British! I am sick of them! I am siding with the Patriots because they are taking away our rights and not giving us a say in government! Our taxes are too high! The British are starting unnecessary fights and riots. The Boston Massacre killed my best friend and others unarmed. They had no right to kill them. This isn’t fair. I want my life back!
