Two Paragraph Intro:
The passage of the Intolerable Acts by Parliament sent the colonies over the edge with their rage towards Great Britain. They eventually came to the conclusion that a revolution was necessary so that all ties between the colonies and Great Britain could be severed. The First Continental Congress ended with a Declaration of Rights and Grievances being sent to the King, in the hopes that he would understand and repeal the acts. When the King refused, the Second Continental Congress took place and soon the Declaration of Independence was written. The war began. Native Americans allied with the British and Americans allied with France. When Britain decided to pull out, a Treaty of Paris was signed calling for the US to be recognized as an independent nation.
The Articles of Confederation came first, but ended up failing because they were too weak. Soon, they were on their way on the road towards the Constitution.
