The conflict between the British
and the colonists has been the thing everyone’s talking about for a while
now.  It has been like that because the
British government had been trying to upper the control over the colonies. Also
raising their taxes at the same time. The event that happened in Boston helped
to bring colonies together. That’s what the conflict about Britain and the
Colonists were about.

 

            The result of this was a British Parliament that’s was passed
on the year 1764 for Currency Act. Which forbid the colonists from issuing

            The American colonists were very
unhappy with these laws and taxes. It made more difficult for them to pay debts
and taxes. The British Parliament enacted the Stamp Act and the colonists
immediately. They were certain that the Stamp Act was an attempt to raise money
in the colonies without the approval of colonial legislatures. The colonist wasn’t
so happy about this. These were the reactions from the colonies about the laws
and and taxes.

 

            The First Continental Congress was a
series of events imposed by the British government on the colonies in reply to
their refusal to new taxes. Also it was made of agents from the colonies and met
in the year 1774 in reply to the Coercive Acts. “In 1775, The Second Continental
Congress convened after the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783) had already
begun” (history.com). In 1776, it took an important step of announcing
Americans Independence from Britain. Five years later, the congress approved the
first national constitution, the Articles of Confederation, on which the
country would be ruled until 1789, when it was replaced by the current U.S
Constitution.

           

            In Conclusion, the American
revolution was different from any others in the history of revolution.  It freed colonists from British order and offered
to blow in what historians have called “the age of democratic revolutions”. The
American Revolution was a global event. Many British historians even use the
Revolution as a dividing point between a “first British Empire” and a “second
British Empire”. That’s what the American Revolution was about.
