I am King George, the Ruler of Great Britain. I received the British throne in 1760 and started my 59-year ruller life. Right before the Revolutionary war, I let the parliament put the Stamp Act, and the Tea Act on Boston. I let them do this because Britain needed money to pay for the war debts that just happened. This made the colonists extremely angry because they did not like these terrible acts or paying so much for things that they used almost everyday like tea or paper! I thought that the colonists should at least respect me because I am their king but some of the colonists became patriots and did not like me at all.
I believed that independence was not the best idea. I knew that the colonists did not like me that much but I had to get their money to pay those debts and do other things that they did not enjoy.
I have many beloved possessions but my favorites are my top three. It is my Crown, my Rulership, and my Empire, which is Great Britain. My crown is one of them because it is covered with very valuable gems and because only a very important person can wear it which is, of course, me. My rulership is another one of them because I am able to put rules and acts on Great Britain. And my last one is my empire because my empire is where I am able to have power the most and it is where I was crowned king.
Signed, King George The Third
King George wanted to have all the colonists under his command and be the most important person in their lives. Although the colonists really wanted independence and not be ruled by King George, he did not let them. That was when the colonists decided to write The Declaration of Independence. So then in the end they got what they wanted, independence and that meant that the colonists could do some stuff that they could not have done before the declaration was written. Some of the things that they could do was have say in the rules and acts that the parliament put on Boston and be in the government.
