FIVE  EXPLANATIONS OF WAR 

1.Political Conflict:  A struggle between tyrannical control of England & the liberty-loving Americans who saw an opportunity to carry out the beliefs of the Enlightenment thinkers

2.  Practical: the impossibility of England’s maintaining colonies 3,000 miles away as part of its empire as well as the internal political conflicts in British government

3. Economic Conflict: between the growing American free enterprise system & the English mercantile system

 

4. Religious Conflict – between the variety of religions that settled in the colonies & the Church of England, the dominant religion of English officials & aristocrats

5. Social Conflict:  The development of a new class structure in the colonies due to the ending of heredity, birthright status, & primogeniture, & the availability of land & the expansion of the the right to vote as social “level-ers”
