Almost everyone would argue that the colonists did the right thingwhen they declared independence from England. If they had not doneso, it is hard to know what type of country the United States wouldbe today.
The revolutionary era began in 1763, when the French military threat to British North American colonies ended. Adopting the policy that the colonies should pay an increased proportion of the costs associated with keeping them in the Empire, Britain imposed a series of taxes followed by other laws in…tended to demonstrate British authority that proved extremely unpopular. Because the colonies lacked elected representation in the governing British Parliament many colonists considered the laws to be illegitimate and a violation of their rights as Englishmen.

Merlin had created the sword in the stone which read that, "whosoever pulleth this sword from this stone is rightwise born king of all England." A great tounament was being held to determine who would have the right to try to pull it out. Young Arthur was acting a squire to his foster brother, Sir K…ay. When they were getting ready for Kay to fight, it was discovered that Arthur had left Kay's sword back at the inn. When Arthur ran back to retrieve it, he saw the sword in the stone and grabbed that instead, without realizing what it meant. Kay recognized it immediately and showed it to his father. At first he tried to claim he had pulled it but on questioning admitted that Arthur had done it. They went back to the stone, accompanied by all of the knights, and Arthur demonstrated that he could put the sword in and pull it out. Several of the knights tried to pull it and failed. After Arthur had demonstrated several times that he could do it, and no one else was able to, he was acclaimed king. ( Full Answer )

For instance Puritan Protestants wanted the only church to exist in each colony to be theirs and this became the "state". This meant establishment as term referring to the fac…t that the financial, legal, and privileges were to extend to that one church and others were to be seen as dissenters. Nine of the 13 colonies had this at one time or another. The founders of Rhode Island were the exception. Mainly Baptist they permitted all churches and believer equal status. William Penn also was determined that many faiths represented in Pennsylvania should have equal rights and that none should depend on civil authority for support. This is one reason that there is a amendment in the Bill of Rights that there is no establishment of religion. ( Full Answer )
During the war the Americans benefited greatly from international assistance (from France, and then later also Holland and Spain, all of whom declared war on Britain). In addition, Britain had significant military disadvantages. Distance was a major problem: most troops and supplies had to be shippe…d across the Atlantic Ocean. The British usually had logistical problems whenever they operated away from port cities, while the Americans had local sources of manpower and food and were more familiar with (and accustomed to) the territory. Additionally, ocean travel meant that British communications were always about two months out of date: by the time British generals in America received their orders from London, the military situation had usually changed.

Colonists, such as the European people who colonised the American continent, believed they had the right to settle in those lands because they were "unclaimed" by anyone else (e.g. not part of another European state). Generally speaking they did not recognise any native American countries and also c…onsidered it a divine obligation to impose the Christian religion on the "uncivilized" and "pagan" native people of America who would otherwise live damned lives of ignorance and barbarity.

Did the colonists do the right thing in declaring independence from England in the Boston tea party?
The colonist didn't do the right thing because the English just tax them more after the whole surplus of tea.
First, in theory, the people of England had more rights than anyone else in the entire world. The exceptions involved the nobility. While everyone was equal, the nobility was more equal. While the nobility could and did pull rank in the legislature, they did not have the power in the courts they had… in England. The courts treated everyone alike until King George III established Admiralty Courts. During the Colonial period in America, England was a settled country. America was not. America had to create many solutions to solve many of its own problems. How would Americans create houses, schools, churches, roads, bridges, farms, etc., where there were none and fight hostile enemies at the same time? England did not have those problems. Thus, Americans used the rights they had and took other rights because they needed them to survive. ( Full Answer )

because they lost the war and they were in dept. they had to make money by taxing the colonists. the colonist thought that this act was very unfair because they had no say ans The colonists, like all citizens everyplace, always paid tax. It was not anything "begun". They paid them in Britan, or… where ever else they came from, before coming to North America. Many paid substantially more. Taxes are paid for army, and police, and education and all types of services....all of which the colonists needed a large amount of. What they objected to was paying MORE tax (on some things) than the other citizens of England did. Now you decide - was that objection justified?
