In the Declaration of Independence King George III was accused of a long list of transgressions. Did he really deserve such treatment? He was alleged to be a tyrant and unfit to be ruler of a free people. Really? The colonists were understandably angry at the laws and taxes imposed on them from London, but should their anger be laid at the door of King George? In Hamilton he was portrayed as a preening fop, but what was he really like? All shall be revealed in Defence of King George.
