At the conclusion of the French and Indian War in 1763, Britain's North American colonies enjoyed a privileged status within the empire: business was good, taxes were low and religious tolerance was high. Nevertheless, within fifteen years, the colonies would be in open rebellion. How could a dispute over colonial taxes spiral so quickly into all-out war?
This seven question short-answer & identification worksheet traces the American Revolution from its origins in Britain's unfair trade practices and the inflammatory prose of Thomas Paine, up to the war's turning point at the Battle of Saratoga. Special attention is given to the series of tit-for-tat retaliations that drove the colonies against her mother country: what did King George III's Royal Proclamation do? How did the British government respond to the Boston Tea Party?
