revolting americans nuts

America can’t be tamed!!!

As you probably guessed, Americans were not happy whenKing James II grouped the colonies together as theDominion of New England" and appointed Sir Edmund Andros governor of the whole dominion. As soon as everyone caught wind that King James II was overthrown, Boston began organizing a revolt. The mob attacked on April 18th and arrested Edmund Angross along with other dominion leaders. 


UPDATE: We’re hearing reports that Edmund Angross attempted to escape disguised in WOMEN’S clothing. The attempt was unsuccessful. We SO wish we saw Edmund in a dress running around prison!! LOLz!
