Best Answer

The greatest achievements during the 1700s were the preparation and beginning battles for independence from Britain. Nowhere in the colonies was the patriotism and the refusal to be subjugated stronger than in the New England colonies. The most important events prior to the war took place in New England. The Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre, both took place in the New England colonies. The important beginning battles of the American Revolutionary War in Lexington and Concord also took place in the New England colonies.
