  1. The British tax laws imposed on the Americans and infringement of their independence contributed to the revolution
  2. The Americans' desire for independence in governing themselves and their resources led to the war

In wars, individuals, groups or communities are involved. Their actions and words are key contributing factors that eventually end up into a war. In the American Revolution, there were two major groups involved, the American agitators, and the British. There is therefore need to look at who should bear the greater responsibility or take more blame for the American Revolution. Dull (1985) says the British tax laws imposed on the Americans and infringement of their independence were a major contributor to the revolution. Wood (1992) states that the Americans' desire for independence in governing themselves and their resources amidst British government's quest for dominion and thirst for America's resources, led to the war. This essay seeks to assess the involvement of both the American agitators and the British in an effort to show who should shoulder more blame.
