disagreements in Lexington and Concord in April 1775 (Newmann, 193). France joined the
revolution in 1778 in support of the colonists. After the support from the France, the
Americans earned their independence from the British colonial masters in 1783. This paper is

Events Leading to the American Revolutionary War
There were several factors that contributed to the war. One of these factors is taxation.
The colonists were also not happy with the fact that they were being taxed without
representation. The heavy taxation was introduced after the French and Indian war (1754 to
1763) which left Great Britain in debts (Shi, David and George, 17). In an attempt to recover
from the debts, the colonialists introduced heavy taxation to the North America colonies.
These taxations included the stamp act which imposed a levy on all paper document. This
made the Americans unhappy and started stirring up a revolution.
