Best Answer

The colonists came to think of themselves as "Americans" for several reasons. The first is that many times, once a group of colonists had settled in the New World, England gave them short shrift. They had to learn to fend for themselves, and become greatly independent of in tht they had to learn how to make or grow the things they needed. Second, England tried to tax the colonies to death for the goods they did deliver, but were not wiling to give the colonists any say in what taxes were levied.
