    That's an interesting question, because that correlation between the Enlightenment and the American Revolution is often overlooked, or is subordinate to the specific Acts and taxes imposed by the British. but give me a minute and I'll answer it

    well basically people got tired of the "tyranny" of the absolute monarchies. They rebelled and when that happened everyone else caught on. in the case of the American Colonies, the enlightenment thinkers inspired them to break free of the "wrath" of King George III. The ideas of the enlightenment thinkers are reflected in the Declaration of Independence. that's just the short version of it
