It started in 1775 and ended in 1783. The first battles that sparked it were the battles of Lexington and Concord.

This is debatable. Some say it was ignited by the dissatisfaction of the American colonists with all of the taxes put on them by King George III (particularly the Currency Act of 1764 & the Stamp Act). The american colonists felt these taxes were unjust because of "taxation without representation". Others say factors such as Pontiac's Rebellion and the Royal Proclamation of 1763 were the precursors to this. If you're wondering about the first battle that got started, it would be the Battle of Golden Hill in 1770 or some might even say 4 years prior, the skirmishes that took place over the cutting down of the liberty poles in celebration of the repeal of the Stamp Act.

The VERY start of the war itself was the "Shot Heard Round the World." No one knows, nor ever will know (unless a time machine is invented), who it was that fired it. But rebellious thoughts began much before that. The colonies were not only displeased, but becoming self-sufficient. Like a child growing up and independent, ready to leave his/her "parent stem" (Thomas Jefferson). NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!!
