Ten things that I learned about the Revolution. bret Grinstead

There were 3 battles itself and they were Rhode Island, Charleston, and Quebec.

There were 5 events leading up to the Revolution, they are the sugar act. The stamp act. Townshend acts. The Boston massacre. The last event leading up to the Revolution was the Boston tea party.

The sugar act is also known as the American Revenue Act. The sugar act was a revenue-raising act. The earlier molasses, which had imposed a tax of six pence per gallon of molasses, had never been effectively collected due to colonial resistance and evasion. On April 5, 1764, Parliament passed a modified version of the Sugar and Molasses act.

The stamp act was passed by the British Parliament on March 22, 1765. The new tax was imposed on all American colonists and required them to pay a tax on every piece of printed paper they used. Ship's paper's, legal documents, licences, newspapers, other publications, and even playing cards were taxed.

The Townshend Acts were a series of acts passed beginning in 1767 by the Parliament of Great Britain relating to the British colonies in North America. The acts are named after Charles Townshend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who proposed the program. The Townshend Acts imposed duties on glass, lead, paints, paper, and tea imported into the colonies. Townshend hoped the acts would defray imperial expenses in the colonies, but many Americans viewed the taxation as an abuse of power, resulting in the passage of agreements to limit imports from Britain. In 1770, Parliament repealed all the Townshend duties except the tax on tea, leading to a temporary truce between the two sides in the years before the American Revolution.

The Boston Massacre was a street fight that occurred on March 5, 1770.

Sons of Liberty dump British tea. In 1773 , a group of Massachusetts colonists disguised as Mohawk Indians board three British tea ships moored in Boston Harbor and dump 342 chests of tea into the water. Now known as the Boston Tea Party, the midnight raid was a protest of the Tea Act of 1773. The Boston tea party was in 1773, there was a group of Massachusetts colonists desguised as Mohawk Indians board three British tea ships moored in Boston Harbor and dumb 324 chests of tea into the water.

There were 2 outcomes of the War and that is the treaty was signed for independence and we got are independence.
