The American colonists are getting very angry at the British for taxing without letting them have a representation in the British government, which was called Parliament. They make a plan to get back at the British. "No taxation without representation!" the colonists say.
The Americans get back at the British by starting a war between the British soldiers that were deployed In America. It was one of the bloodiest wars in American history.
The American Revolution ended in 1783, which resulted in independence from Great Britain.
