From the introduction:
In 1775 America is a British colony, ruled over by King George III and his Government. But relations between the colonial settlers and the Government have become increasingly strained over the previous decade, since a number of laws were passed to tax the American people. The settlers thought these were unfair, as the laws were imposed by a parliament which had no American representatives in it, and they showed their disapproval by rioting, particularly in Boston.
By April 1775, when your adventure begins, the Americans are ready to oppose the British by force.
