The colonists strongly objected to Parliamentâ??s efforts to expand their authority in the colonies due to financial losses suffered in the Seven Years War. They objected to being heavily taxed and not having direct representation. These grievances had gone unaddressed by Parliament for a decade.

After the colonists dumped cargoes of tea into the Boston Harbor to rebel against Britain's high taxed on tea,Parliament passed the Intolerable Acts. The Intolerable Acts angered the colonists because Britain shut down the harbor so their trade was affected, the colonists were only allowed to have one town meeting a year,and Parliament passed the Quarterin Act. This angered the colonists and called for war by 1775.

The American Colonists went to war in 1775 because they did not think that the taxes the British imposed on them were fair because they did not have representation in Parliament. They also thought that the king couldn't rule them from 3,000 miles away.
