Explain two of Marsden's reasons for the American Revolution in 100 words or more.
Marsden reading: Treasure Hunt for Factors that Contributed to the American Revolution
Maybe this is just MY problem, but I find Marsden’s organization hard to follow. On pp. 38-54 of Chapter 2, he writes about the religious factors and nonreligious factors that contributed to the American Revolution. The information seems scattered to me and he sometimes repeats himself. Allowing for the possibility that you had problems with his organization too, I thought we’d go on a treasure hunt together to find these reasons, to define them, and identify where this information is in the chapter. The religious reasons for the Revolution are important and often overlooked in the study of this time. But we’ll also make note of the nonreligious reasons he gives for the Revolution. The combination of the two not only contributed to the climate that lead to revolution, they also shaped American culture.
