It was taxation without representation, meaning that Americans were supposed to pay money to the British government even though they had no representation or ability to give their opinion in that government.

这是没有代表的税收,意思是即使美国人在英国政府中没有代表或发表意见的能力,他们都应向其纳税。
This made the new Americans very angry.
这让新美国人非常愤怒。
Americans were also angry about the way that the British army treated them.
美国人还对英国军队对待他们的方式感到愤怒。
British soldiers (or people who work in the army) were often quartered (or allowed to live, eat, and sleep in a place for a short period of time) in American homes without the permission (or approval) of the person who owned the home.
英国军人(在军队工作的人)常常未经美国人的许可(或同意)就驻扎在(或短期内可以在某处住、吃和睡)他们家里。
Often these soldiers behaved very badly while they were in the home.
这些军人在他们家中的表现常常很糟糕。
This is the second reason why the new Americans decided to begin fighting against the British.
这是新美国人决定开始反抗英国人的第二个原因。
The third reason that Americans fought against the British was because they lacked (or didn't have) self-government, which was the ability to create and run their own government.
美国人反抗英国人的第三个原因是他们缺乏(或没有)自治权,即建立和管理自己政府的能力。
The land that would become the United States was far away from Great Britain, yet all the government decisions were being made in Great Britain.
那个后来成为美国的地方离英国很遥远,然而所有的政府决策都是在英国作出的。
The new Americans longed (or strongly wanted) to make their own decisions, but the British wouldn't let them.
新美国人渴望(或强烈想要)自己做决定,但不被英国人允许。
So Americans fought against the British, and this fighting became known as the American Revolution, or the war that ended when the United States became its own country, separate from Great Britain.
因此美国人反抗英国人,这场战争被称为美国革命,或者这场战争最终导致美国与英国分裂,并建立了自己的国家。
