This a concise review summing up why the American colonists decided it was time to sever ties with King George III and the British. It reviews key terms and vocabulary like, "no taxation without representation" and "patriots" vs. "loyalists". It ends at the start of the war. It focuses on key concepts, but does not go into all the details of every event. That's why I would use it as a review of the road to war, rather than as a means of teaching the causes and effects of each individual event along the way.
