No taxation without representation, am I right ya'll?
The causes of the revolutionary war!
In the beginning, the king wanted his people to go to the americas. When they got there, the Natives and the colonists started to argue and cause problems for each other. This started the 7 years war.
Here ye, here ye! the king has stopped all tea trade!
One way the king had them help pay off the debt was taxes. One he inflicted upon the colonists was the townshend act. This act allowed the british to tax certain items and had colonists take care of british troops.
Screw the king!!!!!!
The result of this act led to the boston massacre which killed many colonists. but at least scruffy lives on!
In response to the boston tea party, the king enacted the tea act. it gave british the right to control all trade of tea in the colonies.
The colonists were very upset by this. the colonists dressed up as native americans and tossed barrels of tea over the side of a ship containing the tea.
