THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR STORY.......THINGY!
THIS IS MY STORY TIPE THING UH YEAH HERE YOU GO!
In 1662 King Charles granted a charter to Connecticut 25yrs ago, king James none to take the colonists charter. Electing members represented the king and British parliament, all had a say had a passing of British law even British citizens living in Britain were represented by electing members of parliament.
In 1764, British parliament could make laws for colonists, the king needed to pay for the French and Indian wars so he made laws to tax the colonists.
The king started the sugar act in 1764 this angered the colonists, but what bothered them most was that they had no part in making this tax law the king and British parliament all had a say in passing laws. Unlike other British citizens would not elect lawmakers
The stamp act was another blow to the colonists to metric deals the colonists had been practicing self-government for years.
The stamp act of 1765 was another attempt by parliament to get the colonists to pay for the war the new tax law angered people in the colonists.
The stamp act required colonists to pay the stamp on all paper goods like newspaper.
Parliament added these new laws for the colonists the stamp act congress met to get the act reaped. James otis said the quote,
“No Taxation Without Representation”.
These British laws were directly against the demonstration ideals of self-government the colonists have been practicing for 100yrs.
The colonists did not get to elect representation into British parliament. They did not have any say in the tax laws they were being forced to pay. The king king made a third law that angered the colonists, the tax on tea in, 1773, the colonists believed in democracy the colonists weren’t represented in British parliament and believed the only way ensure there right’s was to fight for them.
The colonists were British citizens living in America. When there right’s were being trampled by the sugar act, the stamp act, and the tax on tea, they first appealed to the king and parliament. When that didn’t work they protested. Eventually the real cry of no taxation without representation government.
In 1776 in the revolutionary war, British colonists fight Britain for the right to become American citizens and be truly FREE!.
