On May 10,1773 the Tea Act was passed allowing the British East India Company to sell it’s low-cost tea directly to the colonies, undermining colonial tea merchants. Merchants who had been acting as the middlemen in legally importing tea stood to lose their businesses to the East India lose The Tea Act directly impacted shop keepers who would only be allowed to purchase tea from merchants selected by the East India company and their monopoly. Only ships owned by the East India company could carry tea, the American ships engaging in the tea trade would be redundant. The revolt began when about 50 citizens attacked a British sentinel. The Boston Massacre was a signal event leading to the Revolutionary War. Conflict between Bostonians and Redcoats flared into violence in 1770, when soldiers on guard duty were harassed by a rowdy mob.

Their cousin, Revolutionary War commander Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, was the father of Robert E. Lee, who would command the confederate Army during the American Cival War. In 1775, Ben Franklin wrote a Declaration of Independence. His declaration shocked many of the Continental Congress. It would be another year before Congress would ask Thomas Jefferson to write his version with help from Franklin. The American Revolution (1775-1783) is also known as the American Revolutionary War and the U.S. War of Independence.

France entered the American Revolution on the side of the colonists in 1778, turning what had basically been a Civil War into an international conflict. After French assistance helped the Continental Army force the British surrender at Yorktown, Virginia, in 1779, the Americans had efficiently won their independence, though fighting would not formally end until 1783. 1775-1783
