    American Revolutionary War

    Post by fearlove on Mon Apr 18, 2011 1:22 pm

    The American Revolutionary War (1775ā€“1783) or American War of Independence,[6] Revolutionary War, or simply American Revolution, began as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and thirteen British colonies in North America, and ended in a global war between several European great powers. The war was the end result of escalating political tensions between the Parliament of Great Britain and colonists opposed to various taxes and other laws they considered oppressive and illegitimate. Earlier responses of the colonies to Parliamentary actions included petitions to King George, a boycott of British goods, and the Boston Tea Party in 1773. Parliament responded to this act by sending more British soldiers to Boston and appointing General Thomas Gage as governor of Massachusetts. In April of 1775, Gage sent a contingent of troops out of Boston to seize a suspected rebel armory. Rebel militia, including many known as 'minutemen' because they were trained to muster on short notice, confronted the British troops in the town of Lexington, and the resulting Battles of Lexington and Concord began the war.
