Sir William, I can't remember why it was that we battled each other in the revolutionary war.
Me either Mr. Washington. Lets ask some folks around town and see if they could help us out.
Excuse me Mr. Franklin, do you remember any of the implications that pushed us to revolt against the British?
Certainly! Lets go to the back and I'll inform you some reasons behind the revolutionary war.
One main reason was the sugar act of 1764. This was a tax on imported sugars aimed to stop smugglers and bribery at British ports. The tax was established as a tactic to get colonials to pay the debts of the French and Indian War, which really irritated colonists.
Darling, don't forget to mention the Stamp Act of 1765. Oh I'll just tell them. This act called for the requirement of all paper documents to have a government issued stamp. It was the first internal tac that has an affect on everybody. Colonists were furious about the act because they weren't getting any say, which led to the famous phrase, "Taxation without Representation"
Ah, excellent point Margaret! That reminds me of the 3rd most important factor, the Tea Act of 1773. This is when the British made the East India Tea Company the only allowed tea in the colonies. It gave the colonies no freedom of choice and caused multiple rebellions including the famous "Boston Tea Party".
Ah yes, our memory has been restored! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Franklin for sharing with us the 3 most significant factors that ultimately sparked the Revolutionary War!
