3 European Exploration. Some reason for european exploration that led them to North America were that the European’s were looking for a trading route to Asia. The Muslims and Italians had most control of the trading, so Spain and Portugal and other parts of Europe wanted to find another route to Asia so they may trade freely for gold, silk, and paper. Another motive was wealth and adventure. Some Europeans heard of the discovery of new lands and they wanted glory and wealth.

Except, the colonists felt like they didn't have a say in the British Parliament, so they began to rebel. They felt like England was being unfair taxing them for help (in the French and Indian War) that they never even asked for. Mainly, the Americans wanted England to take away unfair taxes, repeal the unfair acts (Intolerable Acts, Stamp Act, Sugar Act etc.)and to be represented in the British Parliament, but since Great Britain refused to do so, they declared independence. e_colonists_want_independence_from _Great_Britaintaxes
