Yo Whats up buddys!!! First of all I am here for your learnshould know abit about the American revolution. (Well I didn't just want to do it. It was just an assingment.)
First of all some British citizens sailed to America for freedom and probably something eles but I can't remember. They then started 13 Colonies. Some of the Colonies were called Virgina, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Then in 1754 the French And Indian War started. This war cost The British a lot of money to pay the cost of war. The when the war ended in 1763 the damage was amazing! The British gained new land for the colonists, but then the British decided to kick the Americans out of some of the new lands from the Indians who helped fight for the British.This angered the colonists but they still were ok with it. Then Brithish Parliment decided to make the Colonists pay for the war that was fought to protcect them, the called tis law the Sugar Act because the colonists had to pay an extra price on goods like sugar and other things. Then there was the Stamp Act which ment all items printed on paper had to have a special stamp on it. This law made the colonists furious!!! But then the Britis parliment took away all taxes except the tax on tea! The colonists refused to pay the tax and instead bought some Dutch tea. But the the British stopped the Dutch trade in to the colonists. Thats all for now! See ya!!!

P.S. Here's a shorter way of saying it.
The British taxed the colonies so that they would have to help pay for the war that protected them.
The colonists responded by not paying the taxes because they thatouh it was unfair that they didn't have a say in this new tax law.
