Imagine how different American history would be without the affects inspiration and hypocrisy and how they shaped the early United States. Early American history is defined rather equally by both inspiration and hypocrisy they just affected early America in different ways.
This is shown by the treatment of native American Indians by early white settlers as well as when early American citizens rebelled against English rule, and how the very first settlers or the puritans changed American history.
Too start Hypocrisy and inspiration had a major impact on how Native American Indians were treated by early white settlers. Both Inspiration and hypocrisy affected them in different way they also went hand in hand in many other areas at this point in American history.

It started with just a few men who felt them and their fellow colonists were being treated unfairly by england. As time went on they inspired more and more people to join their cause. One of their best forms of inspiration was through their writing. They were able to inspire many colonists through these writings. Without them the colonists would of never been able to defeat and separate from england rule.
The final main point is the first early early colonists to
