Why did you select that specific event?
You have a number of events to choose from, encompassing the entire time span from 1764 to the summer of 1776. Bear in mind that, even after the decision was made for independence, indications are that anywhere from 20 to 35 percent of colonists STILL were not in favor of it. So, perhaps, the question could be phrased another way, which is to say what event changed the most people’s minds to be in favor of independence?
