American Revolutionary War Were the Colonists Justified in Their Rebellion against England Did They Have an Adequate Cause for Revolution Starting after the termination of the Seven-Years war by the Peace of Paris England repeatedly violated the American Colonists rights A series of events happening between 1763ending of the Seven-Years war and 1775 starting of the revolution could be taken as motives for the Americans revolution The Americans claimed that through both the Sugar Act 1764 and the Stamp Act 1765 the British dishonored their rights to taxation The Townshend Acts also infuriated the Americans and as in all other circumstances they were willing to fight for their rights The final justification for the Revolution came from the Coercive Acts The Sugar and the Stamp Acts were the first events by which the Americans felt their rights violated The British wanted to collect tax for revenue from the Americans who felt they were dispossessed from the right of self- taxation The Americans felt that they should be able to manage their own taxation or to select people to manage their taxation What they absolutely did not want was the British taking care of their taxation They did not want taxation without representation The Townshend Revenue acts of 1767 were another justification for the Americans rebellion This taxed imported goods such as paper glass paint and tea The Americans felt again that their rights were being dishonored The Colonies lead by the Massachusetts assembly tried to figure out ways to get around the Townshend Acts The Americans surely refused when asked by the parliament to revoke the circular letter passed by the Massachusetts assembly This created more unity among the colonies which added to the Acts were one more justification for their rebellion
