I have to respond to a DBQ on the Independent Revolution.

The question is:
To what extent had the colonists developed a sense of their identity and unity as Americans by the eve of the Revolution?

My main points are:
1)The end of the French and Indian War in 1763 (led the colonists to rely less on Britain)
2)The disregarded Proclamation of 1763
3)The colonists revolting against all the taxes put upon them after a century of salutary neglect (both 2 and 3 reveal the colonists working together somewhat)
4)The Stamp Act Congress of 1765 (first attempt to unite the colonist)
5)The nonimportation agreements that led to the repealing of the Stamp Act
6)The Association creation The 1st Cont. Congress drew up (boycott Brit. goods)
7) The victory of the Revolution in 1781
8) Declaration of Independence

Do I need better points or to omit some of these points? Thank you for helping.

    It depends on what your documents are.

    Ben Franklin's join or die

    The colonists saying they rather die free than live as slaves

    The Continental Congress deciding to take up arms with the British

    The colonists' contributions to Boston Mass. after the Boston Harbor Intolerable Act

    A letter from an American farmer wanting to cut ties with the British

    These are the documents I'm going to use but book information is required as well. I don't know if I have too little or much information and whether the main points I have will suffice or are too insignificant.
