The Americans went to war with the British because they felt that the British were unfairly taxing them just to pay off their debts, which they were. The famous slogan: "NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION" means just that. There were no people in the British Parliament to represent the Americans. Besides this, the Americans also wanted freedom as a separate country.

During the revolutionary war, America was trying to break free of England and king george iii. The reasons for this were due to taxing, the tea party, the big massacure, and many other things. ANSWER The British didn't dislike the Americans, they supported them coming to America. Americans were British. They jsut had a VERY different opinion

They meant that the British would have to have a good reason for taxing the Americans. If there was not a good explanation, then there was reason for taxation.
