  • The French and Indian War began when the French and British colonies wanted to expand their territories. The war saw the French colonies allied with Native American tribes pitted against the British colonies along with some Native American allies. The French and Indian War resulted in the Seven Year War in Europe and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763.
  • Protests
  • No taxation without representation!!
  • Because of the wars that Britain had itself caught in, they decided to implement taxes on certain things to gain all of the money they had lost. Britain created the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act, the Quartering Act, the Tea Act, the Townshend Revenue Act, and others. The colonists called these the Intolerable Acts.
  • American Revolutionary War Begins
  • These Acts that the American people found very unfair, sparked different groups to be created. Some of the most significant groups were groups like the comittee of correspondence, the Sons of Liberty and the Daughters of Liberty. All of these groups tried one thing; to resist British control over the colonies.
  • The Declaration of Independence
  • Protesting started to break out in the colonies and the phrase "No taxation without represenation" was created. The colonists organized town meetings and wrote angry letters to the newspapers as some signs of protest. They also put together independent voluntary groups that organized different ways to resist the British. The Boston Massacre and The Boston Tea Party are two examples of violent protests.
  • The American Revolutionary War began when fighting broke out between Great Britain and the American Colonies on April 19th, 1775. The British army was supposed to capture hidden guns and supplies in the towns Lexington and Concord by suprise, but a system of signals warned the Americans. The Americans fired on the British Army and forced them back to Boston.
  • The Decleration of Independence is a document created by the Second Continental Congress explaining why the colonists thought it was necessary to seperate themselves from British rule. The authors of this document were Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger R. Sherman and Robert Livingston. This document was created on July 4th, 1776.
