Thanks for sharing. I always find it very interesting to read different perspectives on how, why, and when the ball started rolling toward the revolution.
If asked, I tend to place most of the blame on the Proclamation of 1763. It drove a wedge between GB and the colonies that was not to be repaired.
But, if questioned further, I'm rather fascinated by the starting role George Washington played as a young man, way, way back before the Revolution. As a young officer at Fort Necessity, if he had not signed that paper "confessing" to be an assassin, causing an "international" incident - perhaps the Seven Years War (French-Indian War) could have been avoided or postponed, eliminating or delaying the snowball effect of future events. But, it happened the way it did, and I find it intriguing to contemplate Washington's full circle role in it.
