2.06 Revolutionary War Letter

By dwaynedrummond1 Mar 15, 2011 454 Words
Dear Alice

I haven’t seen you in awhile and I am not sure if I will ever again. I want you to know my loving sister that I am joining the rebellion against Britain. King George III and the Parliament have been wrongfully abusing their power; us colonists are tired of their exploitation and resent being treated as lower beings. Alice I hope you will understand what I am trying to say in this letter; that I am fighting for justice, do not think that I am throwing my life away, I hope that you will respect what I am fighting for. The colonist and I are above tyranny, we hope to make a more fair and just government and live in a country that I am proud to say I helped make.

Alice, what I am fighting for is justice, these inequitable acts are unjust, they are destroying the dream of the colonist people to benefit from the land and make a living. Yet, these acts such as the Quartering Act, the Townsend Act, and the Intolerable Acts are simply taking away the limited money we have. Providing food, housing, and transportation for the troops is very troubling for colonist to give. These troops are here to serve and protect the people, not the people serving and protecting them. Furthermore, being taxed on printed paper, and other things we necessarily have to use often, is crippling our economy with these overpriced tariffs. How is a country supposed to profit if all their wealth is taken away? That is why I am going to fight this oppressive tyranny against our country. As you may know colonists in Boston have protested against these acts with the occurrence of the Boston Tea Party, which sadly produced the Boston Massacre. These events caused the Intolerable Acts, which closed the port of Boston and form even more acts upon us. The British is a supremacy abusing their power against us, sister the colonist will rise against this injustice and fight for what is fair.

As I write this letter, I realize this might be the last one I may write to you. I hope you can understand why I am doing this, and I hope you are not offended by me fighting the country we were raised in. You may not agree with my decision, but I want you to understand that I am fighting for what I believe in. So, my beloved sister, you are the only one I wrote to because you are always there to support me, and was always there for me, and I wish you the best, I love you and you will always be in my heart.

P.S. Love you
