The American Revolutionary War, in which America won its independence from Great Britain, was fought from 1775 to 1783. This war was one of the most significant events in American history. Without it, the United States of America might have never come into existence.

The British legislature attempted to make British tea marketable in America. A previous crisis had been averted in 1770 when all taxes on British products being sold in America were lifted, with the exception of those on tea. The Tea Act was planned to reassert Parliament's right to levy direct revenue taxes on the American Colonies.

The shipments became a symbol of taxation tyranny to the colonists, reopening the door to unknown future tax abuses. Colonial resistance culminated in Boston Tea Party (December 1773), in which the tea was dumped into the ocean by the Americans.

In the Quartering Act, the British parliament required colonial authorities to provide food, drink, quarters, fuel, and transportation to British forces stationed in their towns or villages. The Stamp Act put a tax on legal documents such as wills, diplomas, and marriage papers. Completely unexpected was the avalanche of protest from the colonists, who effectively nullified the Stamp Act by outright refusal to use the stamps, as well as by riots, stamp burning, and intimidation of colonial stamp distributors.

Colonists passionately upheld their rights as Englishmen to taxed only by their own consent through their own representative assemblies, as had been the practice for a century and a half.

A riot took place on March 5, 1770, between British soldiers and the colonists;

here is the story as Paul Revere told it: "On the night of March 5, 1770, five men were shot to death in Boston by British soldiers participating in the event known as the Boston Massacre. A mob of men and boys taunted a sentry guard standing outside of the city's costume house. When other British soldiers came to the sentry's support, a fight ensued, and shots were fired into the crowd. Four died on the spot, and a fifth died four days later. Capt. Preston and six of his men were arrested for murder but later were acquitted. Later two soldiers were found guilty of manslaughter." This was one of the reasons we had the American Revolution.

Many school children will remember the famous poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow telling of Revere's ride by horseback to warn the colonists that the British were coming. The first verse is as follows:

"Listen my children and you shall hear

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,

On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;

Hardly a man is now alive

Who remembers that famous day and year."

In 1776, the second Continental Congress chose Thomas Jefferson to draft the Declaration of Independence. When Jefferson was done with a rough copy, he gave it to his subcommittee, which included Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, for their approval.

It only took seventeen days before the copy was presented to Congress with the entire subcommittee's approval. One by one, the representatives signed the document, and on July 4th, made it official. Even though independence was declared on July 4th, it took several days for the news to reach all the colonists. Although the revolution would last until 1783, the United States was free from British rule.

The Treaty of Paris in 1783 officially ended the war; it said that Britain recognized the United States as a separate, independent country.
