How did the Currency Act effect the colonists?

The Currency Acts created tension between the colonies and the mother country, and were a contributing factor in the coming of the American Revolution. In all of the colonies except Delaware, the acts were considered to be a "major grievance". When the First Continental Congress met in 1774, it issued a Declaration of Rights, which outlined colonial objections to certain acts of Parliament. Congress called on Parliament to repeal the Currency Act of 1764, one of seven acts labeled "subversive of American rights". However, according to historians Jack Greene and Richard Jellison, the currency debate was no longer really a "live issue" in 1774, due to the 1773 amendment of the act. The controversy's most important impact was psychological, in that it helped convince many colonists that Parliament did not understand or care about their problems. Colonial leaders came to believe that they, rather than Parliament, were better suited to legislate for the colonies.

In the American Revolution African Americans fought on which side?

The vast majority of African Americans fought on the side of the British, records show that 20,000 fought for the British after being promised freedom and land, many also signed up aboard Royal Navy vessels. The Continental Army kept no records for Black American slaves; however, it is thought that approx 5,000 fought on the orders of their 'owners'. The British kept their word and many African Americans emigrated to British Canada, England and the Caribbean where they were freed and given small plots of land. It is a sad fact that American slave owners on catching the freed slaves tortured, crippled and even blinded some in revenge. Many historians believe the Revolutionary War was fought to retain slavery in the colonies as England had outlawed the practice. In Simon Schama's 2006 book 'Rough Crossings: The Slaves, the British, and The American Revolution' he lays out the evidence for this horrific fact.

What are some major reasons for the American rebellion against Great Britain?

The American Revolution began in 1775 as open conflict between the united thirteen coloniesand Great Britain. By the Treaty of Paris that ended the war in 1783, the colonies had won their independence. While no one event can be pointed to as the actual cause of the revolution, the war began as a disagreement over the way in which Great Britain treated the colonies versus the way the colonies felt they should be treated. Americans felt they deserved all the rights of Englishmen. The British, on the other hand, felt that the colonies were created to be used in the way that best suited the crown and parliament. This conflict is embodied in one of the rallying cries of the American Revolution: No Taxation Without Representation.
