Do you know that the American Revolution is also called the Revolutionary war or the war of independence and the United States war of independence? Do you know why it started? You might not know all of this but it is okay because if you read this book, you'll know a lot ore about the war than you know it now!
Chapter 1
Too Much Taxes
Taxes pleeeeease!
Too expensive!
One cause of this war is that Great Britain (England) is forcing the Americans to pay a lot of taxes. The Americans didn't agree on paying a lot of taxes. They thought it was unfair. This keeps on happening until the Americans got so furious that they want to battle. This also lead to the Boston Tea Party and the Stamp Act.
Chapter 2
Paul Revere
Now I am going to introduce you Paul Revere. A hero during this war. He has 51 grand children! Paul Revere was born on January 1 1735 Boston Massachusetts. At the age of 12, he was a silversmith. He was also able to ride horseback quickly. He became a messenger that can spread messages quickly.
One time, England want to steal the weapons that the Colonists stored. Then Paul Revere thought of an idea. He decided to use secret codes for if the redcoats are coming from land or sea. One lantern is for land and two is for sea. Robert Newman climb up the church tower. He discovered that England is traveling by sea! The two lanterns were reached. Paul Revere saw that and jumped on his horse and keeps on yelling "THE BRTISH ARE HERE!!! THERE HERE!!!" at every single door. Everyone heard it and battled. The Boston Massacre is one of the causes of this war.
Chapter 3
The Boston Tea Party ( Tea Act )
Colonists got angry and decided to throw the green tea in the water without paying the taxes for England.
Are you interested in the Boston Tea Party also known as Tea Act, a cause of the war? I will tell you all about it! The Tea Act started at 1773. The Colonists are taking the tea that the British made. The British want them to pay a lot of taxes for the tea. They are very greedy. The Colonists don't agree on paying this much taxes. So, instead they throw their tea in the sea! England got so furious! They closed the harbor to punish the Colonists. No tea for them until they pay their taxes! The money back then was different. The tea was very very expensive. If the Tea Act was happening right now, it would cost about 7.1 Million dollars!!! There were only about 342 crates of tea! During this war no one was injured or killed.
The Authors Thought
The Colonists could just make their own tea. They do not need to throw the tea that England made in the sea. The tea on the ship was green tea. The Colonists can use Camellia sinensis and boil water to make their own green tea. It was the Colonists own fault that the Boston Harbor was closed.

Alexander Hamilton
Hamilton was born on January 11 and about the year of 1755. No one was sure what year he was born on. At the age about 47, Hamilton had a duel with Aaron Burr. At the duel, Aaron Burr shooted Hamilton. Hamilton died at the age of 47.
Chapter 5
Loyalists
Are you bored of the Colonists? If you are, then let's talk about something else! Like the loyalists! The Colonists are relying on the British's things but the British want them to get there own things. So, they put high price on everything. It made the Colonists mad. During the Boston Massacre, Paul Revere was the one who was drawing the etching. the etching made both sides mad. So, the war started. The loyalists felt worried and scared. Imagine one of your family member going to a war with peoples holding guns and swords. That is how the loyalists felt.
