What key events led to our rebellion on July 4, 1776?

00:00 / 00:00

What events were bad enough for us to take the crazy, bold step of announcing we were no longer going to be loyal to the crown in Great Britain at a time when that country was the most powerful on earth? What mistakes did Great Britain make? Who in the British government warned them to leave the colonies alone? And what aspects of the British government did we fold into our own Constitution (you might be surprised)?

In this episode I interview Constitutional genius Prof. Rob Natelson who walks us eloquently through the events that led up to our break from Great Britain, and he breaks down the sections of our own government we modeled after our enemy.
