You are an American colonist living in Boston in February of 1776. The American Revolution has begun yet the American colonies have not declared independence. You just read Thomas Paine’s Common Sense advocating Independence and you begin to remember two separate sermons you heard the previous year given by the Tory ministers Jonathan Boucher and Charles Inglis arguing against independence. Afterwards, you begin to formulate your stance on American independence. Are you a rebel or a Tory? Is it time to declare independence from the British?
