Introduction
The American Revolution (1754–1781)
After the French and Indian War, the age of salutary neglect was finished. Britain, wanting to replenish its drained treasury, placed a larger tax burden on America and tightened regulations in the colonies.

On May 10, 1776 , a resolution „to cut the Gordian knot“ was adopted.
On June 7, the resolution was introduced by Richard Henry Lee to the Congress. Congress selected a few of its most gifted delegates, including Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, to draft a written proclamation of independence. Jefferson was chosen to be the committee’s scribe and principal author, so the resulting Declaration of Independence was a product primarily of his efforts.
