This is a short (3 paragraph) “critical commentary” essay from my American Civilization class. I must provide a critical analysis on how the revolutionary leaders convinced the lower class Americans (peasants, farmers, laborers, etc.) to join the armed struggle against England. In other words, poor people had absolutely nothing to fight for; they did not own property, could not vote, and the revolutionary leaders were not promising them a new social order, hence, why rebel if “Tyranny is Tyranny?” In short, the revolutionary leaders consciously “manufactured consent” among the lower class to join the revolution. Note: This is NOT an analysis on how the colonists became independent. Please do NOT write an essay on the independence movement, but rather on the historical conditions that “convinced” ordinary, propertlyless, and disenfranchised people to fight for independence. What historical or contemporary 18th century forces came into play which “united” the colonies against England? Again, this is NOT an essay on how the colonists became independent from England but on how they were “convinced” to join the Continental Army! In short, how did the American Revolutionary leadership “manufactured the consent” of ordinary farmers? This class is based on the readings: A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn, (Chapters 1-10) which is found in http://www.historyisaweapon.com/zinnapeopleshistory.html and US History Outline (Chapters 1-7) which I will be attaching here in PDF format:
