Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 How the American Revelation Began How it began Leading up to the American Revolution didn't happen overnight. It took several years and many events to push the colonists to a point where they wanted to fight for their independence. We describe some of the key causes of the American Revolution below in the order that they occurred. The Founding of the Colonies One thing you should know is that many of the American colonies were first founded by people trying to escape religious persecution in England. As the British government became more involved in the affairs of colonies, people began to worry that they would once again lose their freedom. Taxes The British taxed the Americans because they had no money to pay the solders. First they gave them the sugar tax because the patriots loved tea with some sugar but then the patriots started not using sugar. So what the British did is close the sugar tax and then they made the ink tax so any thing that used ink you hade to pay extra money. Next they made the tea tax after that all of the colonist started boycotts. Protesting After the taxation began the colonist started protesting against the British's taxes and laws.A group called the Sons of Liberty formed in 1765 in Boston and soon spread throughout the colonies. During one protest in Boston, a fight broke out and several colonists were shot and killed. This incident became known as the Boston Massacre. French and Indian war The French and Indian War took place between the American colonies and New France. Both sides allied with various Native American tribes they traded manufactured goods and natural resources. This war lasted from 1754 to 1763. British troops not only helped the colonists to fight the war, but were stationed in the colonies for protection after the war. These troops weren't free and Britain needed money to pay for the troops. The British Parliament decided to tax the American colonies to help pay for the troops. The Boston tea Party Not really there was tea involved, but nobody was drinking it. The Boston Tea Party was a protest by the American Colonists against the British government. They staged the protest by boarding three trade ships in Boston Harbor and throwing the ships' cargo of tea overboard into the ocean. They threw 342 chests of tea into the water. Some of the colonists were disguised as Mohawk Indians, but the costumes didn't fool anyone. The British knew who had destroyed the tea.
