After seven years of the fighting the French and Indian War, tensions had grown between Britain and its American colonies. In response to the substantial debt Britain was burdened with after the war, they began taxing the colonist with the intent of recuperating their losses. The colonist, who had not been given representation in the British parliament, felt the taxes were unfair. After more than a decade of increased restrictions and taxes, the prominent members of the colonial society were left with a decision to make: pay the taxes willingly or prepare for war ("Patrick Henry’s Speeches"). Although many colonists believed action against the British was necessary, only a few were willing to voice their opinions. On March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry decided it was time that his voice was heard (Kindig). His statements on that day later became known as “Liberty or Death” (Kindig).

Lin-Manuel Miranda who wrote the American musical Hamilton, which displays many different characters and their actions. The one character who’s actions essentially was the cause of the tension between him and the U.S eventually leading to a revolutionary war, was no one other than the great King George III. In the first song “You’ll Be Back” the king sings about his love for the U.S and how they’ll come back to the crown, but he can’t see past his madness and realize his actions and unfair treatment was the cause to the revolutionary war. In the song “I Know Him” King George seems to be still stuck in his old ways and in a great mood believing the U.S will fall apart with its new president since Washington stepped down. In the song “What Comes Next” George III acknowledges that the U.S is now free from him, but he shows his madness by believing the U.S will fail without him.
There were many goals that the colonists had in waging the Revolutionary War, and an innumerable amount of those goals contributed to America’s political system. A few of their goals were to convert into a country free of a king, become independent, get rid of all loyalists, equal rights between men and women, and slaves wanted to be freed. A great deal of these goals were accomplished, although they were not very easy to carry out.

On the eve of a modern era, July 4, 1776, a select committee of five representatives sat down to document the separation of the American colonies from the despotic reign of the English Monarch, King George. It was on this day that Thomas Jefferson put pen to paper to write “The Declaration of Independence” and courageously declared autonomy from Great Britain and their harsh and unlawful actions which, the colonists, can no longer be content with. Jefferson proclaims the separation of what will later become the United States of America from Imperialistic Britain. Jefferson addresses King George directly to state his intentions as well as the Patriotic Colonists in order to persuade them in favor of the liberation of colonial America and obtaining
Many people are under the superstition that the tyrannical laws and taxes that were imposed on the Americas were solely George’s actions but actually king George hardly contributed to the laws he just approved the laws the parliament created. But none the less King George was responsible for the American revolution.
The colonists were justified declaring independence. Ignoring their every plead, speech, letter, King George III didn’t always treat the colonists fair, thus forcing them to live in absolute tyranny. The colonists dealt with numerous hardships accompanied by Great Britain. They decided to turn the other cheek, to walk the dirt path into a new future of independence and liberty.

When people are instructed, they have capacities to do evil and blind obedience sometimes leads to disasters. Being obedient to a reassuring leader will make it easy to win a war.

It is a prolix process from a decision was proposed to this decision was adopted.
In 1760, when George III became the King of England, his one mission was to get rid of the war debt with the help of the colonists.

They formed the Sons and Daughters of Liberty groups, in order to get their rights back.
One loud shot was fired, leaving everyone with the question of “who fired first,” The Revolutionary War had begun. The American colonist were unquestionably right in waging war and breaking away from Britain. The colonist no longer wanted to be under Britain's strong mercantilist. Conflict had rose between the mother country and the colonist. The American colonist were justified in waging and breaking away from Britain because of taxes, treatment, and mercantilism.
In 1775, America was under the control of Great Britain. Many people were oblivious to the fact that we were under control, while other people thought it was time to break free and gain independence. Among these people was Patrick Henry, who was a huge advocate for colonial independence. In his speech at the Virginia convention, Patrick Henry argues to forcefully persuade the audience to go to war with Great Britain and pushes for the use of military action by using figurative language, rhetorical devices, and organization, and by confronting them with their current position of danger in the face of the inevitable British invasion.
