Still image from Social Class In Revolutionary America

The availability of land gave American colonists more self-determination than Europeans had, but there were still social class divisions. Outlines the qualities and lifestyles of the gentlemen/gentry, common, working-class, and slaves during the mid-1700s in colonial America. However, because the classes mingled at social, political, and religious events and held common values, they were able to join together, overcome differences, and fight for independence. Part of the Colonial Life Series.
