What events led to the American Revolution?

The Stamp Act

The British Parliament passed the Stamp Act in 1765 on its colonists in North America. The tax on the colonies was to pay off the British debt that incurred during its war with France. However, the colonists did not have representation in Parliament and therefore believed that the Stamp Act was unjust.
