The Information that we will give comes from the best teacher of this class, her name is Ms. Touché, she knows every detail of U.S history, thanks to her, this is happening. I expect you enjoy this, and it helps you on your work and projects.
Why did the American Revolution happen?
First we should know this war started by a battle for America between the French and British colonists, it happened in the Ohio River Valley. This war in Europe was called the seven (7) year war, by the fact it lasted 7 years. George Washington was the commander of the british colonists, by the years 1756-1757 British were losing war, because the French allied the Indians, who raid the frontier were many small villages were, they attacked there because they knew, that they where so far from society, that British could jot ask for help, they felt more comfortable to attack there also because there were less persons, and the Indians had weapons, but not guns. This attacks weakened the British, so between 1758-1759 British started a tactical counterattack were they blocked the French supplies boats, that brought food, ammunition, weapons, this forced Indians to retrieve since French could not maintain them. British were able to capture some strongholds near Saint Lauren River, by this they were able to attack Quebec, Canada in 1759, they also captured Montreal and the French governor was forced to give Canada to the British, later on all French stronghold surrender near the Great Lakes. British defeated French and with Spain these three countries sign the “Treaty of Paris” that established the end of the 7 year war, and peace between this countries.
Causes of the rebellion.
Taxes were the main reason, but they were imposed because Americans enjoyed life
they were protected from the French, and Indians, they had political rights, since they had the British government style, Americans enjoyed trades with Europe, by this British suffered many losses of money, since they had to pay those expenses that the Americans did not payed at all,they had to find a way to recover that money, so they imposed taxes to the Americans. They were upset they said they did not have the right to pay taxes unless taxed was imposed by their own government. By 1760 colonists protested against the imposed taxes, here its when The American Revolution starts, we can see how calm and how many peace Americans had, and when something that did not benefit them arises, they had to fight against it.
