Causes of the American Revolution
See the events that led to this historical battle.
During this period of time, political and economic factors ultimately led to the American Revolution. The French and Indian War caused The British Parliament to accumulate debt over land in the Ohio Valley. As a result, England believed the colonists should pay for this massive debt. With more control from the English government, colonists believed that they had rights to create their own taxes. This in turn created friction between the colonists and the British Parliament.
The Tea Act
This was where colonists were forced to boycott tea.
Colonists were taxed on paper goods such as newspaper and legal documents.
England closed the Boston Harbor and took away the rights of the colony of Massachusetts.
