loudmouth asshole inciting rioters
Okay, first you must keep in mind that the authority of the state was the King of England to which the colonists (in parts of North America) were legally subjected to. Rebellion and insurrection refer specifically to acts of violence against the state or its officers. This distinguishes the crime from sedition, which is the organized incitement to rebellion or civil disorder against the authority of the state.
Okay, now for the loudmouth assholes (as viewed by the state) that demonstrate not only incitement but actual violence.
The actual inciting to civil disorder is clearly demonstrated by those signatures of fifty-six delegates on the United States Declaration of Independence. Actual sedition.
Insurrection got it start on the night of April 18, 1775, with hundreds of British troops marching from Boston to nearby Concord, Massachusetts in order to seize an arms cache. Paul Revere and other riders sounded the alarm, and colonial militiamen began mobilizing to intercept the Redcoats. The actual insurrection technically began on April 19, where local militiamen clashed with British soldiers in the Battles of Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts, marking the “shot heard round the world” that signified the start of the Revolutionary War.
