    Homework - 8th grade

    Welcome to 8th grade. We will begin the year by tracing the events which resulted in the Revolutionary War.  The first of these events was the French & Indian War.  This is the war that led to the taxes on products ranging from paper to tea to glass to sugar.  It is not paying taxes which upset the colonists as much as the fact that they had no say in the imposition of taxes on the colonies.  Had we lived in England, we would have been able to complain to elected members of Parliament.  As British living in the Americas, we suddenly had no voice in government and no vote.
