What united the 13 colonies against England?
independence of the united states.
The patriots were against England and they acts they were forcing on the 13 colonies for example the quartering act,stamp, act, and tea act. The patriots wanted freedom because they thought England was doing unjustice to them because it was taxation without representation. The England cud not force taxes on the 13 colonies because the colonies had no one to represent them in the Parliament in England.
The common purpose that united the 13 colonies was freedom from England. At that time England ruled the colonies harshly and taxed the colonies for goods and services without providing anything in return. Thus the colonists declared "taxation without representation" and declared their independence. Good luck with your homework kid!
No, England was not part of the 13 colonies. A colony is a place ruled by England, so England couldn't be a colony. Delaware, Virginia, Georgia, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, North and South Carolina, and New Hampshire are all of the 13 colonies. They are states today, but before the US declared its independence, it was ruled by England in colonies.
