This is our declaration of independence from Britain!

The Declaration of Independence is a document that explains why they're breaking off from the British. The British have been extremely unfair using them for money for their own benefit and need.Thomas Jefferson wrote most of it. It took place in Philidelphia and it was on July 4th, 1776. The British weren't happy. That was their source of money that just broke off. What comes next is a war. The Revolutionary War.
Lexington and Concord
Stand your ground!
The Intolerable Acts are 4 punishments that the British thought would make the colonists regret what they did. They closed the Boston Harbor, forced the colonist to let soldiers come into their homes, and took away Massachusetts self-governing right. this struck them in the right place, but this is only the beginning of the end.
A tax law passed by the British to make more money off the colonies. They taxed the imports that the colonists buy. but this wasn't any better than the stamp act. in fact, they got even more riled up and some terrible events occurred because of it.
The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the first battles in the American Revolution. the tension between the colonies and the British have been rising up and becoming worse and this was what lead the breaking to that tension. The British had hundreds of troops march and the colonists got militiamen to fight them.
