As you can probably see some of the coloniesCauses of the american revolution

They had were here in North America some of them will revolt and will gain their independence after a war against British, but why? On the east coast of today's United States There are 13 organized territories named colonies Which are part of the British Empire For more than 150 years the region developed; people came in for new opportunities And many of them were British. The Seven Years War happened between great powers of Europe including Great Britain against France and the French Lost their colonies in North America in the end. The Seven Years War had been won by British only at a great Financial cost. During the war the British national debt doubled; post-war expenses were expected to remain high, because the government decided to keep 10,000 British regular soldiers in the American colonies. London was looking for money. Spoiler alert: this was the primary reason for the start of the war. The Sugar Act of 1764 had imposed the tax of six pence per gallon; the Parliament knows in April 1764, when the Sugar Act was passed, that they would also consider a stamp tax in the colonies. The colonies didn't want that. Benjamin Franklin Opposed the action saying that this could lead to revolt. But the British still put a tax on the colonies and required that many printed materials in the colonies to be produced on stamped paper produced in London. The colonies didn't understand why the British need to put a tax on them in order to maintain a force in the Colonies when there wasn't a war and the Americans had always protected themselves against Indians. Boycotts and revolts happened and the result was the Boston Tea Party, Which was a political protest as a response to the British Taxes and acts. An entire shipment of tea sent by the East India Company was destroyed. Americans boarded the ships and threw the chests of tea into Boston Harbor. The Tea Party became an iconic event of American history. Colonists objected to the Tea Act because they believed that it violated their rights as Englishmen, that is to be taxed only by their own elected representatives and not by the British Parliament in which they were not represented. After this episode the relations between crown and colonies were more and more damaged and Britain responded by closing Boston Harbor. The colonies formed the Continental Congress To coordinate the resistance. They declared the trade boycott against Britain which was effective in the end. British attempt to disarm the Massachusetts militia at Concord in April 1775, But the reactions lead to open combat, that was the start of the American independence war.
