THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM ON THIS DAY IN 1775

rev war

The American Revolutionary War began on April 19, 1775 as a war between the
Kingdom of Great Britain and the thirteen British colonies in North America, and
ended in September 3, 1783 following a global war between several European
great powers, such as conflicts in India and West Africa between Great Britain
and France. It resulted around the unconstitutionality of the Stamp Act of 1765,
imposed by the Parliament of Great Britain on the colonists. The colonists felt
it was taxation without representation and was illegal. They soon formed a
unifying Continental Congress.
