About the Event
For this Zoom talk we will look at some of the forces that shaped the American Revolution: on the one hand, the economic forces; the importance of international trade, and the taxes on it; on the other, the political forces, the self-rule long enjoyed by American colonists, and the political rights guaranteed in the English Bill of Rights.
The lens through which we will examine these forces are political cartoons and pictures, created as propaganda for the American cause in England. - Marta Black
