Patrick Henry was a big speaker for independence in Virginia in the 1770's. His best remembered speech was the "Give me liberty or give me death" speech.

Why did the colonists ultimately decide to rebel against British rule and in 1776 declare full independence?
The colonists decided to rebel because the british took away their rights,put on them heavy taxes,and didnt allow them spaces in Parliment( the British Congress).They got fed …up and decided to fight for their freedom.
Men of them (France and Spain mainly) where both enemies of the British an they saw it as a way to weaken Britain. They literally took the phrase "My enemies enemy Is my frien…d" to heart.
The patriots fought for freedom for they didn't want to live without it
Taxes. I might add that the taxes the colonists were paying were quite a bit lower than the total tax burden that American citizens shoulder today. In fact, hundred…s of wars have been fought, and millions of men and women have died, fighting against taxes that were a heck of a lot lower than American citizens are paying right now. The US government appears to be willing to completely ignore the lessons of history. They do so at their own risk.
The French helped the patriots because earlier, in the French and Indian war, France and Britain were enemies and fought over the American land. When the Patriots proved thems…elves in the fight at Yorktown, France took it as a chance to get back at Britain.
Because those Brits came out with their outrageous taxes on everything including tea.
Many people who didn't fight in the war sometimes became medics. Most of the Quakers sent letters to England to be set free and to stop the war.
