Benjamin Franklin was a great proponent of revolution. He believed that indipendence from Britain wass essential and inevitable. He also predicted a long war over this. In 1761, John Adams began to write and act against British measures that he believed infringed on colonial liberties and the right of Massachusetts and the other colonies to self-government. Although he was all for colonial rights, he felt independence should be a last resort. He also defended British soldiers who had fired on and killed several members of a rowdy mob of people in Boston.
