DBQ over Whether or not the American Revolution was a Revolution (using sources in the Chapter 5 DBQ)

No votes yet

Starting in 1763, a non-violent back and forth struggle between the British homeland and the British colonists in America morphed into a violent movement seeking to overthrow the British. While this movement does share some revolutionary characteristics, such as seeking to overthrow a government and the establishment of a new type of government, the movement was ultimately led by class elites who sought to maintain the same social and economic order. Therefore, the revolt that founded the United States of America fails to pass muster as being a true revolution due to a continuation of class elite domination of both the systems of government before and after the revolution.
