Parliament repeals the Stamp Act — History.com This Day in History — 3/18/1766 | American Revolution | Scoop.it
After four months of widespread protest in America, the British Parliament repeals the Stamp Act, a taxation measure enacted to raise revenues for a standing British army in America.
Karen Dumont's insight:

In My opinion i think the declaratory act in 1766 had more significance because the British could tell the American and American colonies to do anything they wanted without any saying. They could also change, add and take off any laws they wanted.

Karen Dumont's insight:

The battle of Saratoga in october 1777 was he turning point of the revolutionary war. I think this because:

 

*It was a major american victory

 

*The significance of the battle was that the world was able to see how strong the american colonies actually were.

 

*The fact that they had won the war started to convince france to join the colonial side

LO:  Why did war break out in 1775?

 

War broke out because:

 

1. The American colonies were sick of being pushed around by the british (they had no saying)

 

2. They were sick of being taxed on all the things (no taxation without representation)

Karen Dumont's insight:

LO: What did the American Colonists mean by "No taxation without representation"

 

This article tells me what it meant. It means that the british thought that the government shouldn't be allowed to tax them on everything if they didn't get a voice in any of the decision that were made by the government.
