Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There were quite a few "commoners" involved in the US Revolution from the start, whether in the Sons of Liberty, the Green Mountain Boys, or the militias (especially in the Carolinas and the western parts of Pennsylvania and New York), and word of what the Revolution was about spread pretty readily, but when these folks tried to make the Revolution actually apply to themselves, the elites smacked them down hard.
