Summary
This look at situations and events leading to the American Revolution features dramatic readings from letters and diaries of the period, comments by historians, and live-action recreations. In episode 2, a total break from Great Britain remained hard for Americans to imagine, even after shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. Words pushed matters "over the edge" in 1776. Thomas Paine's pamphlet, Common Sense, argued that it is the natural right of men to govern themselves. The Declaration of Independence declared this same idea a "self-evident" truth
