The American Revolution is an interesting study, especially when you take events like the Boston Tea Party into account. Colonists were fed up with British rule at that time, and they decided to take it out on goods imported from their leaders’ homeland. Tea was refused entry into the city, and was even dumped into the ocean in protest against taxes and tyranny. In the end, that anger-based action ended up being one of the pivotal moments that led to the start of the American Revolutionary War.
In the following trailer for Assassin’s Creed III, a narrator recounts the events of the Boston Tea Party, then switches gears to the game’s protagonist and his chronicled story, by saying that revolution is “the one that mattered.” It provides interesting food for thought, but may not sit well with historians.
