The long war with France in 1753 left Great Britain with a large debt. This was The French and Indian War.
To pay for the war, Parliament put laws, or acts, on the colonies, such as the Quartering Act of 1765 that required colonists to provide their house and food to the soldiers.
The Revolutionary War begins
To fight back against British´s actions, groups such as the committees of correspondence, formed in 1773, and the Sons and Daughters of Liberty, formed in 1765, were put together. The Sons acted in more violent ways while the Daughters boycotted.
The Declaration of Independence
The Boston Tea Party of 1773 and the Boston Massacre of 1770 were both examples of colonists protesting against the British´s actions because they did not agree with them.
The Revolutionary War began on April 19, 1775, when the colonists forced the British troops out of Boston because they had been warned about them trying to capture hidden guns and supplies.
The Declaration of Independence was created by the Second Continental Congress and was made to prove why the colonists needed to have freedom from the British rule.
