Unity Before The American Revolution 
There were a number of different aspects that contributed to the American colonists  finding a sense of identity and unity. Acts from the Continental Congress questioned British  authority, and after the French and Indian War the British government increased taxation  policies. One single colony does not have the power to start a revolution to break away from  its mother country, but instead all the of colonies must join together to depart from its mother  country, England. Up until the eve of the American Revolution many of the colonies were still  greatly dependant on England, receiving food, and supplies from overseas. Between the time  periods of 1750, and 1776 the American colonies continued to develop their own currency,  government structure, ideas,  and moved away from the mother country, England.  The political contributing factors to the American colonies finding their own identity was  the French and Indian War, The Declaration of Independence, Common Sense by Thomas  Paine, Continental Congress. Document A is a political cartoon by Benjamin Franklin. The  French and Indian War started in 1754 and ended in 1760 therefore giving it the name of the  Seven Years War. This document is encouraging the colonists  to join together as a nation  during this war, instead of as separate colonies. Parliament was the lawmakin
