This song relates to the information about the American Revolution because the colonies are struggling with the laws that Britain is passing and they are trying to make Britain see that they don't want any trouble, but they don't want laws. So, the song says "…never begin it, never, but once engaged..." That means that the colonists are saying "hey, we don't want trouble, but if you provoke us, we'll engage with you." Some actions that upset the colonists were first, the Stamp Act. The colonists responded by boycotting every English good that had the Stamp Act. Finally, England revoked the law. Second, was the Townshend Acts. The colonists responded to these laws again by boycotting British goods and protesting. Third, was the Intolerable Acts. The colonists responded to this law by protesting, and boycotting British goods. Some of the lyrics in this song that help me figure it out are "threaten no more" and "to secure peace is to prepare for war"
The singer of this song has the point of view of not liking the power of the King and English Parliament. The singer says "liberty or death" which is close to "give me freedom or give me death." These were similar words of Patrick Henry. "What we so proudly hails", means what the colonists really loved or wanted, was FREEDOM!
One word that this song relates to is justice. Justice because the song again says "liberty or death, what we so proudly hail." That relates to justice because the colonists wanted independence. Liberty deals with justice because justice comes with liberty. The song also relates to change because the colonists are saying "hey, some thing's have got to change. You keep making these laws, and we keep resisting them!" That's what this song is all about. Another word that this song relates to is environment. It relates to environment because the song talks about how the colonists are in their homeland and they are protesting these laws. The colonists want self-rule in their environment.
