The landlessness coupled with the excessively oppressive of the queen’s government prompted the Americans to take up arms against their colonial masters and resist any further encroachment into their land, any exploitation, and finally the rule by a queen who was millions of miles across the sea (Garrison 22). The American people had the will to resist, they were tortured, and some killed in an attempt of having their grievances heard. These humiliations did not discourage them as the strong spirit of nationalism fostered their actions. The Americans organized attacks on the British population killing and maiming as many as they could get. The British government headquartered in London responded with the use of force. The worst of these forceful attempts of repression was the battle of Lexington and Concord. In this, the government had sent over one thousand soldiers to disarmer the region. In doing this, the army was to confiscate any firearm held by any other person in the region a part from the legitimate government soldiers. The disarmament exercise was humiliating enough and showed persistence to the disregard of human rights. They beat up the population, which consisted of mixed population. They raped women and girls and eventually confiscated all that they could leave the locals wounded and broke (Garrison 76). The book: Great Stories of the American Revolution: Unusual, Interesting Stories of the Exhilirating Era when a Nation was Born, looks into some of the issues that affected the revolution, how the actual revolution was conducted and some of its possible ramifications. In thirteen different tales, the book addresses a number of factual explanations related to the great American Revolution. The book uses the narrative format to tell in the form of short stories the events that transpired during the great American Revolution. The narrations are short and concise thereby making them easy to read and understand. The author of the book addresses the issues of the revolution and the period in terms of themes used in the thirteen different stories of the book. Among the most explicit themes in a number of the stories is oppression and economical oppression. The British settled in the foreign land and forcefully turned all its indigenous inhabitants into their slaves. They used these slaves to till the land, at the time, the industrial revolution had not been invented, labor was therefore provided by humans most of whom ere bought as cheaply as clothes. The British settlers chose the best parts of the region of the country, their interest was not to develop the country but to exploit the resources by using them to produce raw materials in their companies back in England. They therefore never cared about what happened to the country after their departure. The British therefore used the American land to plant their crops and fruits and the surplus primitive energy to carry out their light duties such as supervisions which they also did with a lot of contentment of the actual land owner. The author uses the thirteen tales to cover all the issues that had affected the country during the colonial period, the choice of thirteen is effective and appears to be a close thought after development. The American society had thirteen states all under the white leadership.
