It was the conflict between the Great Britain and the residents of thirteen American colonies. On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress, which represented thirteen colonies, declared themselves the independent United States of America by issuing the Declaration of Independence. This war ended with the winning of the Continental Army in the battle of Yorktown in 1781, and it had opened a brand new page of American History. Like every rebel in the history, there were many reasons that led to this armed conflict such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the forming of the Continental Congress, but the most essential one was the taxing policies of Parliament toward thirteen colonies. Besides that, its effects on both sides were undeniably important to not only the America but also the Great Britain, France, and the Native American: Indians tribes.Long time before the eruption of the Revolutionary War, tensions had been rising between thirteen colonies and the British authorities because of a series of taxing policies on the colonists. Those acts had been passed to raise revenue for paying the debt of the French and Indian War. The Stamp Act in 1765 was the first act to be passed by Parliament, which imposed direct taxes on legal documents, newspapers, even playing cards and various licenses. However, it was fiercely resisted by the colonists, who lacked representation in Parliament, and violent opposition, then, the reaction to the Stamp Act resulted in the British repealing the act in 1766.
