After the French and Indian War the British had to tax the colonies to compensate for the expense of war, but the colonies weren't used to being taxed so much, and weren't being represented fairly.  The king ignored their petition and peaceful words, so they moved to protest.  That didn't work, and eventually the Crown sent soldiers to make the colonists behave.  But that made the colonists angry.  So they began war.
