I will pay for the following essay Hutchinsons Strictures upon the Declaration of Congress. The essay is to be 17 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page.
Thomas Hutchinson, erstwhile Governor of Massachusetts, claimed that the Declaration of Independence was obsolete and that the grievances listed in it were paltry excuses for the rebels to use while justifying their revolution against the British Crown. But while Hutchinson’s strictures sought to justify British exploitation, the words actually proved that every grievance listed in the Declaration was valid. The Declaration of Independence is supported by historical fact and by the essences of nationalism and justice, making Hutchinson’s Strictures a prime example of Britain’s attempt to belittle the American clamor for freedom, which resulted in the American Revolution.
In Hutchinson’s letter to a British noble, he introduces the Declaration with this insult “I thought there would have been more policy in leaving the World altogether ignorant of the motives of the Rebellion, than in offering such false and frivolous reasons in support of it”3. But historical evidence supports the fact that Britain did tax the colonies unmercifully, and quelled any resistance the American settlers raised, using their Redcoats. The taxes were levied to help pay off Great Britain’s 143 million dollar debt, plus an added $5 million in interest, after the pace of Paris in 1763.4 This proved that the Congress of Philadelphia had a strong reason for Rebellion i.e. the protection of their economy and their rights to autonomy, which were being undermined by colonial policies.
