THE CAUSES FOR THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION 2The Causes of the American RevolutionThe American Revolution of 1700 to 1790, was the period that the 13 colonies thatbecome or formed the United States of America gained their independence from the BritishEmpire that colonized them. The cause of the American revolution which can be summarized ina simple phrase of liberty vs. tyranny. The revolution was a struggle by those people who werethe liberty-loving American who wanted to free themselves from the tyranny of the British rule.In this period of time, the colonies rebelled against the British empire and entered into therevolutionary war, which was also known as the American War of Independence. Therefore, thisis the most single important event in the nation’s history (Allison, Ferreiro, & Blanco, 2018).In 1763, Great Britain possessed a lot of holdings in the North America continent. TheBritish government then started to tax the accessories, that were meant to pay for NorthAmerica’s defence from the French during the seven years of war. The major problem among theAmericans was not that of paying high taxes but it was just that they did not have therepresentation in parliament. In 1765, the first Stamp tax was imposed on the citizens, being thefirst direct tax to be collected by the parliament on their colonies. All the newspapers, pamphletsand the official documents had to have the stamps, and all the 13 colonies protested against it.
