in the early 1600s the colonists came to America in search for a better life
once in america the colonists got into conflict .The french and Indian war was a territorial dispute between the British and the colonies militia the British ended up winning.
After the French and Indian war Britain was in major debt so they taxed all the colonies. The colonists got mad at some of the taxes such as the stamp act which taxed all printed items.that is were "taxation without represntation came from.
The colonists responded by throwing all the British tea into the Boston harbor.Then the British responded by taxing the colonists even more with the intolerable acts.
All of these treason led to the revolutionary war because if Britain had taxed the colonists less then they wouldn't have been mad an the war would have been prevented.
