Summary In the American Revolution as in all revolutions, propaganda was extensively and effectively used. Had the Revolution been the work of a majority, united on methods and objectives, in sure control of the movement throughout, there would have been little necessity for propaganda. That it was not is obvious. The difficulties the leaders faced at every stage of the conflict, the coercion and violence by which thousands were forced into acquiescence or exile, the indifference and malingering of thousands of others, and the constant dissensions which disrupted the leadership itself are sure evidences that the Revolution was at best but the work of an aggressive minority. Propaganda was thus indispensable to those who first promoted resistance to specific British acts and ultimately urged revolution. - Introduction.
