Massachusetts was a hotspot of independence and American grit that helped spark the American Revolution. Initially founded by the owners of the Massachusetts Bay Colony the larger colony of Massachusetts was formed after the Glorious Revolution in 1688, combining with the famed settlement of the Pilgrims, the Plymouth Colony. As a safe haven for exiled Puritans, Puritanism heavily influenced the colony, forming the basis of its government and social structures. Salem, one of the first major cities of the colony, was home to the infamous Salem Witch Trials between 1692 and 1693, resulting in the deaths of twenty innocent people.
With increased taxation by British authorities following the French-Indian War, Boston and Massachusetts as a whole became a hotbed of rebellion. Massachusetts natives Samuel Adams, John Adams, and John Hancock were among the leadership that bolstered American rebellion, fanning public fervor after the Boston Massacre in 1770 and leading the destruction of property at the Boston Tea Party in 1773. The first shots of the Revolutionary War rang out in April 1775 at Lexington and Concord and continued to Bunker Hill. American revolutionaries were alerted to invading British troops by the nighttime ride of another famous Massachusetts native, Paul Revere. Much of the early fighting of the war took place in the colony before moving to New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
