Cause for Revolution On July 4th 1776 a committee formed to draft a letter to the King of England formally signed a document containing a list of demands and statements of position that ultimately started the Revolutionary War This action was not popular with all the citizens of the colonies but the majority of the people were in favor of it and the cause prevailed This declaration was a poke in the eye of England and forced them to try to put the colonies in their place and reestablish the Empire Many events led up to the split between the colonies and England When England claimed a portion of the new world for its own they had to inhabit it to enforce its claim The easies way to do so was to allow groups searching for religious freedom to colonize the new world and enforce Englands claim As the colonies began to prosper and succeed English parliament subjected them to a series of harsh laws and taxes England believed that these laws and taxes were just because of their cost to govern and provide military protection for the Colonists The most expensive military action that England engaged in on behalf of the Colonies was the French and Indian War In and effort to keep France from claiming land that England desired and needed for further expansion they were forced to send troops overseas to the new world and fight to protect the Colonies This was a tremendous financial strain on England and they felt that the colonists should repay the empire in full The only way Britain could force the colonies to repay this debt was taxes The first colonists arrived in the early 1600s As generations of colonists grew up in the new world they began to think of themselves as Americans rather than English citizens In this same time period England began to think of the colonists as subjects
