It would be an over simplification to state that the differences were just between the governor and the assembly or only political. The rapidly growing population had many facets that caused rifts between itself and the ruling government in place. Social differences, economic opportunity, and political perspectives all had roles to play in creating a climate that led to open armed rebellions. These differences led…
