I think the colonists were justified because England had put them through a lot, and had not treated them like colonists, not englishmen. It is unfair that one day, a soldier could just walk into your house and live there. Taxation without representation is unfair, and that's what they suffered. The colonists had the right to do what they did, and plus blood had been shed at Lexington and Concord. So, we had the right.
In the course of the war many colonists were ready to declare independence and some were not. When most colonists were really furious and wanted war there were still many loyalists who looked at things from a different perspective and stayed firmly with Great Britain but there were way more patriots, who wanted war.
I think the colonists were justified in declaring war because it was the colonists who created the colonies. It was not fair for the colonists to pay such high taxes and be under British rule. The colonists separated from England to get away from British rule
Yes, it was right for them to declare independence because if they didn't, Boston could be in ruins, royalty would rule us,and we would probably fight on the streets a lot because of the soldiers that the British put in Boston and almost everywhere else. They wanted to have their own country, and they didn't want to pay taxes to Britain anymore and they wanted to have their own way of living. That is why I think that declaring independence from Britain is a good thing. If we were still part of Britain, we would have British boundaries to keep us away from the native Americans and we probably would not have discovered the rest of the US. It is just right to revolt against England because they were cruel to the colonist and did not give them enough land to live on.
Yes, I think the colonists were justified in revolting against England. The colonists had left England in search of a new like and independence. Then England decided to require the colonists to pay tax's and live by there laws. Then the colonists were furious
and fought for there rights and independence.
I think the colonists were justified because England had done terrible things to them, before their decision to break awayway, such as the Intolarble acts and the Townshend acts. They had taken away the colonists rights which were written and signed in the magna carta. This was very unfair to the colonists. King George had voted without a colonist representitive on the Intolerable acts and the Townshend acts. Which started boycotting that lead to the Revolution.
I feel the Colonists were justified in revolting against England and declaring their independence as England was not treating them fairly. England was taxing the Colonists unfairly and not giving them a right to vote. The Colonists could not hold Rank in the British Army and the British Army could take hold of the Colonists property at anytime without cause.
I think the colonists were justified to revolt against England because England were being unfair to the colonist by having soldiers in the colonist homes, The colonist were taxed on many things and that is where No Taxation Without Representation came from, and the British shot at the colonist a lot. I think that the colonist have the wright to declare independence.
I think the Colonists were jusfied because the they had enough of England's tax laws.The Colonists hated that they couldn't take the land they won after the French and Indian War.They were tired of the British treating them unfairly.That is why they were justified in starting the Revolution.
I think we had the right to brake away from England because They were bulling us and taking peoples houses and torching us. That is why it was the right to break free. The Patriots probably thought if we had a lot of courage we could probably win this war and we did. Because the British thought we were nothing to them. This is what I think why t was right to break away from the British
I think the colonists were justified in revolting against England. One reason is that Parliament was making unfair taxes without the colonists opinion. Another reason is that the colonists where getting pushed around and had to home British soldiers and feed them. One final reason was that blood had already been shed. Battles at Lexington and Concord were over and many British soldiers and colonists died. Those are some reasons why I think the colonists were justified in revolting against England.
Yes,I think the colonists were ready to justify their independence by revolting against England.Because they have had so many rights taken away from them. And also didn’t let them even vote on the tax (taxation without representation).I think they were ready to declare their independence.
The colonists were justified in revolting against England because England had not treated them fair and put many unfair taxes on things they hadn't asked the colonists about. During the Quartering act in 1765, soldiers could come in to your home, take your bed, eat all your food, and leave you with nothing. They had deprived the colonists of all their rights. Due to all of this, the colonists started to want to fight, and that's what started the revolution.
I believe the colonists were justified because England put them through a lot.For example England taxed the colonist very unfairly.One of the acts that England passed was the intolerable acts and it's title suits it.Also the British shot at the colonists like in the Boston massacre.In conclusion the British torched the colonists and that is not OK.
I think that the colonists were justified in fighting against the British because the British had punished them,abused them,taxed them,and gave them no say in the government.Needless to say,the people in the colonies were not given any rights(another big reason they should be free)and the people in England were actually treated like part of a COUNTRY!!!!
There can be many different responses to the question, were the colonists justified in revolting against England and declaring their independence, just depending on the way you look at it. But, in my opinion I do think that the colonists were justified in revolting against England. First of all, the colonists and England agreed on certain taxes and that they would only apply those taxes if the colonists had a say in it, too. However, this agreement quickly changed, and England started taxing the colonists unfairly, and without their agreement. Then, when the colonists acted out, England even sent troops over to guard the colonists and to control them, without permission. So, I think the colonists had every right to break away from England, and make a difference upon our world.
Although most colonists were ready to fight England, some refused. The people that wanted to declare their independence from England were called rebels, patriots, or Whigs. Those that wanted to stay loyal to the King and Parliament were called Loyalists or Tories. When the war started, it tore many families, towns, and cities apart. Patriots wanted independence from England because their King was acting like a tyrant, and after the intolerable acts, the colonists were fired up and tired of being treated unfairly. Tories thought that it was right to support their King. They claimed that the colonies could not manage without a King ruling them. Because of all this disagreement and anger, war began.
The colonists did have a good reason to revolt against the Redcoats. One of the reasons why the colonists revolted against the Redcoats was because, they were not represented in Parliament, and so they didn't have a voice in the Parliament . Another reason is because the Redcoats were treating the colonists like they weren't British, and instead the king was treating them like bad kids. Finally, the colonists were being taxed illegally because they had no voice in the Parliament so they started protesting. These are all reasons that the Continental Army fought against the Redcoats in the Revolutionary War.
I believe the colonists were justified in revolting against England and ultimately declaring their independence. The colonists deserved to have much greater control over their own government than they had been given by the British. The King acted without giving the colonists any say in their everyday dealings and government, taxed them in unfair ways, and controlled them too closely. These were the biggest reasons to rebel and declare independence.
Great Britain passed many laws and acts that were against the colonist’s rights. Some of the acts and laws that angered the colonists and made them want to go against Britain were The Proclamation of 1763, the Sugar Act, the Quartering Act of 1765, the Stamp Act, the Townshend Acts, and the Intolerable Acts. The founding fathers wanted a good and fair government that would protect the people and govern them correctly. They understood that the only way to achieve this was to lead rebellions and declare independence.
I think the colonists were justified in declaring their independence for several reasons. First, the colonists had fought in the French & Indian War and won a bunch of land. The King decided to take that land away because the colonist were getting into fights with the Indians. Second, the King and Parliament put a tax on sugar, so whenever they but sugar, molasses, or rum from England they would have to pay taxes on it. Third, the Stamp Act put a taxes on newspapers, pamphlets, marriage licenses, and playing cards. Although there were many other reasons why the colonist were angry, the biggest impact was the Boston Massacre where blood was shed and 5 people were killed. Thats why i think the colonist had the right to declare their independence.
they relocated their independence frone England because we would not be the country who we are right now and we have freedom and independence from England and you’re not being boss around from England and not being forced to have a religion of some sort.
The colonists were justified in declaring there independence because they were being treated unfairly with the taxes and laws. But, however, there are two sides to the topic. The loyalists side was "How can we repay for the French and Indian War?" and the Patriot side is "Your giving us to many Taxes and Laws we have a right, and we are losing our money and businesses because of this!" These are very good reasons but, I have to go with the loyalists because they were not looking through to what they were saying, for example: "No taxation without representation!" The taxation part, how else would we repay for the war? Do they think that the money would suddenly appear? No! But, I do have to say that the representation part was not acceptable. Nobody represented these taxes. Also, the taxes were unfair and the king mostly just wanted the money. So, therefor, I have to say that I have chosen two sides, Loyalists and Patriots. I cannot chose between those two. Plus, it will be unfair two do ienny-minnie-minny-moe.
I think the colonists were justified in revolting against England. One reason is that Parliament was making unfair taxes without the colonists opinion. Another reason is that the colonists where getting pushed around and had share a home British soldiers and feed them. One final reason was that they where killed if they disobeyed the laws.. Battles at Lexington and Concord were over and many British soldiers and colonists died. Those are some reasons why I think the colonists were justified in revolting against England.
I think that they were justified in separating from England because England treated us with disrespect. For example British soldiers would steal Americans’ homes. Also America was making more money than England and didn’t need them anymore.
Yes, the colonists wanted to go to war with England because King George III and Parliament was making unfair laws and was making unfair taxes. It was also not fair to have British soldiers sleeping in your house. In addition, they taxed us on tea, paper, and mush more. They should have the right to declare independence if they want to. That is why the colonists were justified to revolt against England.
The American Colonists were justified in revolting against their king and England. I think the colonists are justified in declaring independence because King George 111 treated them horribly. Some example of what he did was he made them pay taxes, made the intolerable acts, if a soldier needed a place to stay and came to your house you have to let them stay there and give them food and a bed, so made the quartering act and many more. Also KIng George made taxes law without representation from any of the colonies. These are some reasons of why I think colonists were justified in declaring their independence.
I think that the colonist were justified to fight against their King and Parliament. In the seeds of revolution the king was unfair to the colonist because he made taxes without the colonist voting on them. He also sent British soldiers to the colonies and they were allowed to walk into your house and use your stuff. That is why I think the colonist were justified to cause war.
I think the colonists were completely justified in separating from England because of quite a few reasons. Here they are. In the quartering act, soldiers had permission to go into the colonist's homes. Imagine soldiers bursting into your house, telling you that you would have to share your best food, drinks, and other supplies. Also, colonial blood was shed by the British in Lexington and Concord, where we made our first true stand. Next, the British were taxing the colonists. They put taxes on everyday things like stamps, paper, lead, paint, and tea. Englanders always buy tea. This was outrageous to the colonists, and it led to the Boston Tea Party. That is why the colonists were justified to separate from England.
The colonists were justified in revolting against England and declaring independence because it was unfair for England to make taxes with out having any American representation. They didn't think acts such as the Townsend Act and Quartering Act were so justified. They revolted by boycotting certain items because they had taxes or they refused to give up their house.
I think the colonists were justified in revolting against England for many reasons. Yes, they did make up some stuff on the Declaration of Independence, but they also had some very fair reasons for revolting. Parliament was making taxes without letting the colonists represent (taxation without representation). English soldiers were also allowed to stay in any colonists house they wanted to, and the soldiers were taking away the colonists rights and freedom. The colonists had a very good reason for breaking away from England.
I think that the colonists were justified in revolting. They had been through many hard things including all of the taxes that had been put on them illegally. They did say a couple of untrue thing in the declaration like, we didn't do anything we just want peace. But those were untrue. I still think that we were justified in revolting against the British.
The colonists were justified because they were being ruled by a placed 100s of miles away. Also, England wasn't doing what they said they would do for the colonists. They also made new laws and taxes without asking the colonists. The British soldiers bullied the colonists by moving into their homes and sometimes physically hurt them for no reason. The colonists had little power, so they had no choice but to fight.
I think the colonists were justified to revolt against the British because the British were being bullies for example. They were raising the taxes,soldiers could just stay in the colonists houses if they wanted to,and having police officers come and block off the land. The colonists responded by boycotted tea and a lot of other stuff to show how they felt. Therefore, the colonists made the right decision by revolting against the British.
In 1775 the Brittish colonies wanted to brake away from the Brittish. I think the colonies were justified in revolting against England and becoming independent because king George the third was passing laws and taxes with out the colonies voices being herd and he wasn't being fair.
Yes, I think they were justified. I think this because the King of England made unfair laws and taxes such as the Stamp Act. These taxes and laws made the colonists uncomfortable because in the Quartering Act the British soldiers were aloud to march into people's homes. Another reason I think this is reasonable is because the colonists came to America to have freedom like the Quakers who want freedom of religion. Those are some reasons that I think this choice was reasonable.
Yes, they were justified because they were unlawful taxed and had no say in government and they were with any representation. the second reason was the Boston Massacre which made the relationship between Britain and the colonies even more tense. It was about time they stood and took action against the British. It seemed to be the only choice they had. Britain also tried to take control of the trade of what went in and what came out. In order to avoid war, the colonies would have had to give up everything for the British which was not a choice they were willing to make. The colonists felt they were treated like second hand citizens.
