This biography of the 18th century British monarch George III focuses on his attempt to preserve control over England's American colonies. Beginning with the Proclamation of 1763, which prohibited colonial settlements west of the Appalachian Mountains, the biography details increasing tensions between the colonies and the British government, including the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, and the Coercive Acts. When the colonies declared their independence in 1776, George III vowed to punish their resistance with a war that "promised to be eternal."
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
