There are a lot of events that happen in history before the year of 1865. Out of all the events, the one that is most important is the revolutionary war. The Revolutionary war was known as the war of independence. It was a lot of events that led up to American Revolution.
The first event that started it off was the Proclamation of 1763. This was a document that prevented settlement beyond the Appalachian Mountains, stopping colonial expansion. It was design to stop the Indians fear of their land being taken away by the colonist. Colonist took offence to this Proclamation and felt as though their prize was taken away from them (Kindig). Then there was the Sugar Act of 1764. Passed on April 5, this was an act to raise taxes on sugar imported from the West Indies. This act took a toll on British West Indies markets because it made English product cheaper and people couldn’t afford to pay taxes on sugar. That same year, and a few months later, on September 1st the Currency Act was passed. “Parliament argued that colonial currency had caused devaluation harmful to British trade” (Kelly). The Currency Act prohibited the issue of new bills, wither it was bills of created or paper bills.
The next year the stamp act was passed, March 22, 1765. It was an act that required tax on all stamps. In the same year, two days later, the Quartering act was passed. This act stated that a British solider could come in your home and sleep, eat and, do whatever if they needed to and didn’t have a place to stay. The next event was the Stamp Act congress; it was a meeting in New York of 27 delegates from nine colonies who came up with a group of rights that brought colonies together in opposition to Britain (Kelly). Last event in that year was the Sons and daughters of liberty. It was an event where the Sons of Liberty responded to the colonist who tried to start commotion by bringing up non-importation agreements.
The Townshend Act came about on June 29, 1767. It was a resurrection of the stamp act. This act created taxes on paper, glass, tea, and many other products. Because of this act the number of smugglers increased. This act was made to “make colonial officials independent of the colonist” (Kelly). This led to the Boston Massacre in 1770. It was an event where 5 men or colonist was killed by British soldiers. They were angry and opened fire without orders....
