The French and Indian War was one of the first events that led up to the American Revolution. Due to the long and hard war Britain was in massive debt, so they decided to tax the colonists. To say the least the colonists were not happy.
Cause 2: The Intolerable Acts
The British passed a set of laws/taxes that forced the colonists to pay taxes on most of all paper goods. THe colonists were outraged and were urging for the British to repeal this law.
Reaction 2: Protests
One day in the middle of the night three patriot colonists raided a british ship and dumped out British tea into the Boston harbor. This angered the British and they ended up passing a set of laws called the Intolerable Acts.
In reaction the Boston Tea Party Britain passed a new set of laws that the colonists called the Intolerable Acts. The acts took away the colonists government and historic rights. They also closed the Boston Port.
When the Intolerable Acts were passed the colonists were so angry that they decided to protest in the streets by marching. They would be yelling chants to disgust the British and make them angry. The British eventually got so fed up they started a war.
