The British refocused on the colonies in 1763 after their successful war against France because they were in a large national debt.
Protests against the British
The British created acts that were laws from 1764 to 1773 to affect the colonist after the war that was fought by the British.
Beginning of Revolutionary War
Between 1763 and 1775 tension arose between the british and the colonies. So the colonies created groups and the committees of correspondence was the most significant of them all.
Declaration of Independence
In 1770 to 1773 the colonies made big protests call the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party. In the Boston Massacre british troops open fire on a crowd of protesters. In the Boston Tea Party protesters ripped open 342 chests of tea and dumped them into the harbor.
On April 19, 1775 fighting broke out between Great Britain and the American colonies. Which then lead to the Revolutionary War.
A year later, a committee was asked by congress to draft a document explaining why the colonies felt it was right to be free of british rule. That document was called the Declaration of Independence.
