The American Revolution war was fought because the British attempts to take control of the colonists to make them repay the King.
Why did the American revolution war happen?
The tea was a major factor in the French and Indian War because the colonists were very mad that they put a large tax for something that most people love. These people wanted the tea tax to stop immediately.The British colonists also believed that tax on tea was violating their rights as a citizen.
The colonists got very mad since the government did not do anything or make the law not applicable anymore. They rebeled and had the Boston Tea Party and poured lots and lots of tea into the harbor.
This act required for the colonists to pay a tax on every single piece of paper they used.
This furied the colonists because they felt like they had no right to tax because there were not any representitives of the colonies in the British parliament.
