  1. 1:511:59 It wasn't the fault of the Americans. They didn't know the English language (they only knew American) and couldn't read the warnings on the boxes.

  2. To be fair, the taxes were really reasonable considering how much Britain spent to defend the colonies in the Seven Years War. The Americans, who never paid any British taxes before, were still paying much less than British subjects living in England.

  3. Taxes did not start the war . As a retired teacher, It seems that our educational system
    has dumbed down this encounter at Concord Ma. by telling about the famous "ride of Paul
    Revere " and "the British are coming, the British are coming. Why are
    the British coming ??? Most adults I have talked to have no idea what
    happened after this. This was a gun control enforcement action. By the
    end of the day 4000 farmers from many surrounding towns had killed 770
    British regulars. Most of the British soldiers had walked 30 miles, the
    last fifteen in retreat and had to be rescued by another British
    regiment out of Boston. This was the British trying to impose GUN
    CONTROL on the the people of Massachusetts. Remember Lexington Green.
    Tax after tax did not start this war. It was this GUN GRAB and losing
    770 regulars to a bunch of colony farmers.

  4. It didn't end in an American victory like the yanks would like you to think. It ended in a treaty , that is very different.
    Yet the Americans lost more men more equipment and paid a higher price all round .
