One thing that led to the american Revelation was many colonist had to give up their beds, food, and water to soldier. Which was bad for the peole who barely had food and water to survive. This caused the colonist to get very mad.
Another thing that led to the Reveloution was the Boston Massacre. This event pushed colonist over the edge because five colonist were murdered just for throwing snowballs. Colonist didn't waste time after in revolting.
One way that the colonist revolted was by dumping tea into the harbor. It sounds like not a lot of tea was dumped but today that tea cost $1.7 million , and the colonist didn't buy the tea they store it by highjacking the boats.
