The spend a lot of money on building back

  The American Revolution or also known as The American Revolutionary War, was many wars that led to the end of this revolution but the ignition or the start of the French Revolution. Some of the wars were The French and Indian War, Stamp Act, Proclamation of 1763, and the lack of Representations in Parliament (Not in order). This all started when The French and Indian War had ended which left Britain having to spend a lot of money on building back up. Then Britain decided on passing laws in the 1760s that made colonists “pay taxes on sugar, tea, and other things”. After that the colonists were infuriated with these laws, writing and making speeches about the laws. A one memorable group I might say, protested by throwing British into the Boston Harbor.        Many colonists protested for not having many representations in the Parliament, so they demanded to have equal rights as the British subjects. In 1770 Colonial had the idea to go physical, that’s when the Boston Massacre happened. Where British soldiers fired at a rampage of colonists, then killing five men. After wards they had a trail which ended with 4 civilians, eight soldiers and one officer charged with murder and arrested. Afterwards, colonial delegates decided to meet in Philadelphia on September in the year 1774, to give notices about grievances against the what some call “British crown”. While the First Continental Congress try to demand rights and independences from Britain. Instead, they condemn taxation without representation, also including British in their colonies without their consent.           Then discussed declaration rights to every citizen, having life, liberty, property, and assembly and trial by jury. In April of 1775 The Lexington and Concord had fired first shots to the Revolutionary War. One of the first big battle started on June 17 Battle of Bunker Hill had ended with The British being victorious. The Revolutionary War is in full swing by June 1776, The colonists had come to terms to the independence from Britain. The Continental Congress had adopted the Declaration of Independence on the 4TH of July, it was planned by the committee of 5 men including John Adams and Franklin but Jefferson has written most of it. The British government wanting to end the rebellion, sent 34,000 troops to New York, but later in August The Redcoats have surrounded “the Continental Army on Long Island”.             Washington had no other choice then to take his troop out of New York City on September and be Pushed through the Delaware River. Washington deciding to fight back the attack came as a surprise in Trenton, New Jersey. During the 1777 this is when the Revolutionary War took a turning point. British focusing on two tasks, one separating New England from the other colonies. One General named John Burgoyne directed his army to go south from where they were which was Canada to a drafted meeting near the Hudson River with Howe’s army. Then, British defeating the Americans at the Brandywine Creek, on September 11 through September 25 in Pennsylvania. In early October Washington recovered to aim at Germantown as when he was withdrawing to the nearest Valley Forge or known as a Winter Quarters.        Having trouble at the Valley Forge during the cold winter, the troops of Washington has benefited from all the training and discipline of the Prussian military and also Marquis de Lafayette. The end comes near for The Cornwallis is being supported by the French Army being commanded by General Jean Baptiste de Rochambeau. Washington leading his army of 14,000 soldiers moved against Yorktown. They then become trapped, Being forced to surrender Cornwallis made his army surrender on October 19. Men after men surrendering Washington looked for acceptance to his deputy, Benjamin Lincoln who actually accepted it. On September the 3rd 1783 Britain recognized the independence of the U.S in the Treaty of Paris, during this time they also signed individual treaties with both France and Spain. And ending the 8 years of war also ending the American Revolution.
