THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION What do you know about the American Revolution? In the second half of the 18th century, the colonies began to seek independence from Great Britain. One of the main causes of the Revolutionary War was the colonist’s reaction to the taxes being placed on the necessary goods and activities of the colonies. They felt that they had no say in the governing of their communities and began to revolt against the British government. The Revolutionary War began in 1775, when colonial militias began to fight against the British army. Many colonists were impatient to build a new government separate from the British, and enthusiasm for the war grew. Despite the main fight for independence from Britain, many countries joined in the American Revolutionary War. France and Spain played a big role in the American victory. Some colonists remained loyal to the British for a variety of reasons. Despite this, the colonies won the war and were granted freedom from Great Britain. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
