Typical Person and Role in American Revolution
The typical person in the Massachusetts Colony would be a poor farmer who worked a small farm and owned no slaves. They were typically devout puritans as well. Many of the Colonists in Massachusetts at the time of the Revolution were greatly angered by different bills that were being placed upon them. This led sayings such as "no taxation without representation" to be brought about. That is what Massachusetts did. The Colonists stirred up revolution in the other thirteen colonies and it also housed many of the rebellious extremists at the time.
