• Underlying cause of the Revolutionary War:
– Parliament's claim of power to legislate for the
colonies on all matters

• King George III had decided on a policy of autocratic
personal rule in England
• Controlled enough seats in Parliament to consolidate his

power
• Pursued the same policy in the colonies

– Colonists insisted on their traditional rights and
privileges as Englishmen per the colonial charters
• A series of encroachments upon the colonial charters
and the rights of the people led directly to the war
