This unique flag was flown at the
headquarters of General Washington
during most of the Revolutionary
War.
First used by George Washington on January 1, 1776,
this modification of the British Red Ensign became in
effect the first national flag of the United States
 
One of the original 13 star flags, the "Stars and Stripes" was probably the most commonly used variant.
 
The Boston Massacre was not a massacre but actually a street fight between a mob and a squad of British soldiers that ended with the deaths of five colonists. This picture was engraved, printed, and sold by Paul Revere but does not depict events as they actually happened. - Hulton Deutsch
Because Britain had accumulated large war debts, Parliament passed the Stamp Act in 1765.  The act was intended to generate revenues that would help pay for the cost of maintaining a permanent force of British troops in the American colonies.  All official documents, including deeds, mortgages, newspapers, and pamphlets, had to bear British government stamps in order to be deemed legal.

Prior to France's defeat in the French and Indian War (1754-1763), Britain had 13 colonies in North American.  Each colony was a separate entity with its own government.  Intercolony ties were not created until events, such as the French and Indian War conflicts with Britain, united the colonists- Microsoft Corporation
