  • Causes of the American Revolution
  • Background
  • Cause 1: Stamp Act
  • The American Revolution Begins!!!
  • Reaction 1:
  • The French and Indian war contributed to lead up to the revolution. This war created major debt in Britain. This meant that Parliament started to tax the colonist heavily. 
  • Cause 2: Townshend Acts
  • This act directly taxed the colonists. It made it so that the colonists had to print out stamps and put them on newspapers, playing cards, and other documents.
  • Reaction 2:
  • When the stamp act was put on the colonies colonists got very angry. The leaders decided that this was their chance to prove they were being unlawfully taxed.
  • The townshend acts made it so that any good imported into the colonies was taxed. This was because Britain still needed money to pay off the debt from the French and Indian War. It also gave British soldiers a search warrant to any colonists house.
  • The colonist were very angry as a result of this act. The colonists boycotted British goods, got into fights with British soldiers, and everyone started to get involved in protests. Colonist came up with the saying, "No taxation without representation".
