An interesting treatment of the 'revolution's' onset. Not wanting to pay for government services, and avoiding import duties by smuggling, a group of men started a revolution. A disgruntled bankrupt brewer gathered together workers, farmers, small businessmen and conned a few wealthy individuals to overthrow a government. However, the brewer, who started the whole thing saw his power taken by the wealthy, twice. The small businessmen, farmers, artisans and workers who fought for 'freedom' and the right to elect their government found the British aristocracy replaced by an American aristocracy which taxed them, perhaps even more than before the Revolution. It is not without irony that after the revolution, the Governor of Massachusetts who had run the state into debt, resigned due to fatigue before the chickens came home to roost. His successor had to raise taxes to help relieve the debt but was voted out of office in favor of his predecessor who had recuperated from his fatigue. An interesting tidbit, the Declaration of Independence, passed on 4 July 1776 was not signed until 2 August 1776.
