The Battle of Concord in New Hampshire was one of the first major battles between the British and the Patriots.

What were they major causes and effects of the American Revolution?

after the french and indian war, Britian was in debt (wars cost a lot of money!) And so they started taxing the colonies on various items and forcing the colonists to house british soldiers (Quartering act). And then, there was the boston massacre. British soldiers came marching through town, and american colonists called them names and threw stuff at them. The british troop's leader told them not to shoot, but one person on the british side shot anyways. They killed several innocent american colonists. (not really innocent, actually.) Eventually, after lots of debate, America attacked britian. Britain had a lot of powerful and experienced soldiers, and America had a weak army back then. But, we won, and now we are free!

Who is responsible for the Boston Massacre the colonist or the British?

For some people it is a matter of opinion, but colonists were angry with the British and decided to mess around with some soldiers. They began to throw rocks and such at the soldiers, which angered the British. One of the soldiers fired a shot, and whether it was accidental or not, the rest of the soldiers began to shoot as well. You could say that the colonists were responsible for throwing rocks at the soldiers, but that is no reason for the British to open fire on civilians.
