American Revolutionary War


The British used the colonies as a way to make money. They had the power to enact laws in Parliament outside of America which significantly affected life and trade in the 13 colonies. These Acts of Parliament benefited the British but not the colonies. In addition, colonists were not afforded the same rights as the British people, nor did they have any representatives in the British Parliament to present their points of view. The colonists protested and their protests led to revolution.
