During the late 18th century the first conflict in history involving the colonists was formed. The British began to force colonists to follow laws that violated their natural rights which involved: Rights to life, to liberty, and to property. The American Revolution created mobs in response to the taxes that were imposed by the British Government, due to their financial crisis in which British suffered from the French and Indian War. Although the main cause of this revolution cannot be blamed on any one event, there was a series of events that ultimately lead to the American Revolution. There were many causes that angered the colonists in which caused him to rebel against the British. Although some colonists rebelled because they believed that the king of England was a tyrant, others chose to be loyal to the king and appreciate his rules amongst the colonists.
The British was essential to the colonists in whom they offered them military protection and a stability of government, even though the colonists weren't well represented in the parliament. Many colonists felt that the tyrannical rules of the King violated their rights causing many disputes. Some colonists who remained loyal to the King, known as loyalists, believed that the king was doing the right thing on taxing and ruling them, others just did not agree with this and sparked the first civil war on the United States. To show how much the colonists hated the idea of tea getting taxed, they dumped tons of tea on the Pacific Ocean to symbolize that they did not want to be taxed, in their words it was a violation of their civil rights. By rebelling against the government and causing destruction, the colonists expressed how angered they were and how badly they wanted to break away from the British king.
The British had an important reason to tax the colonists. The loyalists who truly supported their idea did it because the British provided the colonists military protection, which the 13 colonies didn't have at that time. When the British needed help in the French and Indian war, the colonists helped them out with no hesitation. They felt that they deserved to be able to expand west to acquire more land, but Britain refused and declared that area closed. This fueled the colonists because they risked their lives and did not get anything return. The next stepping stone which contributed to the American Revolution was the tax imposed on many goods. Over 150 years of in dependent ruling, the British began forcing the colonists to follow laws who they believed violated their rights. The Great Britain financial crisis was after the 7 year war, Britain was looking for a way to get out of their troubles so they taxed the colonists. The colonists protested the stamp act, which was passed by parliament, by breaking into Mr. Oliver’s house and destroying the windows and the furniture they acquired. They also began boycotts to repeal this act.
The colonists were given no right to argue against taxation...
