Greetings to all
Write a short summary of what you learned the Independence day Article
I learned about the independence of United States of America and also learned more than one hundreds new English words.
I learned about the reasons why colonies encouraged the independence by theirself. One of these was the taxes imposed by the crown´s of the English empire. Independence was a gradual and painful process.
In 1765 they began to create secret groups called “Son of Liberty” but were two major events which joined colonies against british: the “Boston Masaacre” (March 5, 1770) and “The Tax Tea”. About this last one, Samuel Adams and other citizens of Boston devised “the Boston Tea Party” and on december 16, 1773 they took the cargo of tea from an East India Company Ship.
Then, in september of 1774 was met the first “Continental Congress” which wrote a document became in the first draft of the Declaration of Independence. The revolutionary war began on April 19, 1775, on July 4, 1776 the Continental Congress approved forming a new Independent Nation: The United State of America, but the war of independence dragged on until 1783 when independence was finally won. currently july 4 is celebrated as The Independence Day in The United States of America.
