As Royster has stated, many citizens saw in the impending military contest “the greatest test of the chosen people. ”6 Whether by Christian precept, whig doctrine, or some combination of these two in conjunction with Enlightenment rationalism, the concept animating most provincial Americans in 1775 was republicanism. Theirs was a special calling, since citizens firmly believed that liberty was being snuffed out across the globe. ” With this sense of noble purpose, the patriot enthusiasts of 1775 decided to test the very vitals of republicanism and their worthiness in aspiring to that ideal.

Another vexation centered on housing for British regulars. Parliament adopted a new Quartering Act in 1765. Troops were to be billeted in public and uninhabited private facilities when barracks were not available. The Act was silent on the subject of using private inhabited homes, although everyone agreed that this practice was illegal. The major point of contention was that of indirect taxation. The colonists were to absorb the costs of quartering the troops, based on provincial taxes and appropriations made by their assemblies.
