The colonist are coming to the new world in search of religious freedom, land , and a better life.
! NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION !
By the middle of the 1700's british settlers were moving into the french territory. resulting in the french and Indian War. the war costs the British government millions of dollars so they looked for a way to generate money.
The British Government (parliament) decided the best way to make up for the war debt was to tax the colonist. One of the first taxes placed on the colonist was the stamp act. This Taxed almost all paper items.
This is the battle cry that the patriots cried out . They thought it was not necessary for the king to charge them after his mistakes.
The Boston massacre occurred because the colonist got aggressive and threw snowballs at the loyalist. They then decided to take action and fight back. The loyalist killed a few patriots and this is when they took action and started to declare war.
After all the wrongdoings of the British government the colonist had enough and declared themselves independent. The war begins in lexington, Concord.
