The American Revolution
The problems between the British and the colonists begain after the French and Indean (Seven years) war. The Proclimation of 1763 prohibited the coonists from claiming land they were promised in the west. Of course the colonists moved to the west anyway. From that point on the king forced new acts upon them.
Another event that led to the Revolution was the Intolerable acts of 1774. The act banned town meetings, imports on tea till payed for, charges on British solders, and colonists had to house British solders. The colonists were angry and eventually declared their war.
The Revolution had begun the colonies were divided into the loyalists "kings followers" and the patriots "king haters". In the war one of the minor battles between the colonies and Great Britain was the battle of Kettle Creek. Georgia's militia was able to claim needed weapons and horses from British solders. A great victory for those in Georgia.
