Almost all products that had any trace of paper in them were taxed; letters, newspaper, and, as the name implies, stamps, had a high tax set upon them.

No, food can't be taxed. It is one of the necessities of life. Food and drinks cannot be taxed, but other unnecessary items can be taxed.

The US got involved in the Revolutionary War to become a separate country. American history classes will teach that the colonists wearied of 'taxation without representation'. This meant that while they were being taxed (and taxed and taxed and taxed again), they had no voice in the taxation process.

The items that cannot be taxed by congress are Exports. The Congress compromise would not allow the government to tax the cash crops exported from the states.

He changed the way you were taxed for shipping items. Instead of being taxed for the quantity of the item, you were taxed for the quality if the item.

The colonists, angry that the British government passed an act that taxed such important items for daily life (the Stamp Act - Taxed all printed material), protested against the act. They also boycotted the taxed items, but paper was (and still is) used all the time in an average person's daily life. Eventually, the Stamp Act, with many other acts, angered many colonists. With that, the Revolutionary War began.

The British Parliament severely taxed the American colonies. The colonies protested and finally went to war against the British. The American colonies were victorious and won their independence from England. The Revolutionary War began in 1775 and ended officially in 1783.

Because the British were oppressing the colonists. They taxed them on just about all the essentials for life. They broke off because they didn't have a say in any of this, and that started the American revolutionary war.
