Chapter 4

The American Revolution

In September 1774, most colonies sent representatives to Philadelphia for the purpose of addressing grievances against Great Britain. British colonists in North America objected to new taxes imposed by the British. This dispute, alond with other issues such as the Proclamation of 1763,

eventually brought the colonists into armed conflict with Great Britain. Actual fighting between the British army and the colonists broke out in Massachusetts at Lexington and Concord in 1775. Open warfare finally pushed colonial leaders to declare their independence from England a year later.
