  • Taxation and Trade Regulations: Colonists grew increasingly frustrated with British taxation and trade regulations, such as the Stamp Act and the Navigation Acts. The cry of "No Taxation Without Representation" became a rallying point.

  • Boston Tea Party (1773): In protest of the Tea Act, colonists, dressed as Mohawk Indians, boarded British ships and dumped tea into Boston Harbor, a symbolic act of defiance.

  • First Continental Congress (1774): Representatives from the colonies convened to address grievances and coordinate resistance to British policies.

American Revolution (1775-1783):
  • Declaration of Independence (1776): The Continental Congress declared the thirteen American colonies independent from British rule with the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

  • War of Independence: The American Revolution began in earnest with battles at Lexington and Concord in 1775. The conflict continued for eight years, with major battles at Saratoga, Yorktown, and Trenton.

  • Treaty of Paris (1783): The war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris, recognizing the United States as an independent nation.
