The Revolutionary War consisted of many conflicts from the time the war started until its end. But some of the most pivotal events leading up to the war happened before it even started. After the French and Indian War, tensions grew between the American colonies and Britain. While there were many clashes during the war, the major conflicts consisted primarily of taxation without representation. After the French and Indian War, Britain was in debt. King George III decided it was a grand idea to tax the colonies to help repay his debt. He implemented several different Acts on the colonies. The Sugar Act, in 1764, was the first form of taxation and it wasn’t just on sugar. This brought about the first saying of “No taxation without representation”.
