Miscellanea

The American Revolution was a political upheaval that took place between 1765 and 1783 during which rebels in Thirteen American Colonies rejected monarchy and aristocracy in a revolutionary move, overthrew the authority of Britain, and founded the United States of America. The American Revolution was the result of a series of social, political, and intellectual transformations in American society, government and ways of thinking. Starting in 1765 the Americans rejected the authority of the British Parliament to tax them; protests continued to escalate, as in the Boston Tea Party of 1773, and the British responded by imposing punitive laws—the Coercive Acts—on Massachusetts in 1774. The other colonies rallied behind Massachusetts and set up a Congress to take charge.
