American History

Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries the colonists underwent a gradual transformation---they became less Anglo-American and more uniquely American. Discuss four elements responsible for this slow metamorphosis. (To merely list the elements is not enough, you must show how each is connected to the transformation of the colonists from Anglo-Americans to Americans) Which element do you believe had the greatest impact on the development of a uniquely American culture and society? Why?

I cannot find enough facts to answer this in three paragraphs.

  2. Actually, I think you will find that geographic isolation from Europe was the single most important factor, but READ all about it. There are other factors, too.
