In the late 1600s, Spain, Britain and France often fought to gain more land around the world. The French and Indian War lasted for almost 10 years, British soldiers fought along with many colonists against the French, and some Native Americans fought, too. Some with the British and some with the French. This whole war started because the British and the French both wanted to claim the Ohio River Valley. The British settlers wanted rich soil for farming and the French wanted to trap beavers for their furs. Finally, in 1754, this argument had caused a war.
The French and Indian War
The Proclamation of 1763 prevented the colonists from housing west of the Appalachian Mountains, because that's where the Native Americans could live. The Native Americans thought the movement of the settlers would destroy the way they lived. Because this was their theory, the Native Americans tried to make the settlers leave by attacking their houses and forts. To make sure everyone would be safe and live the way they wanted to, the Proclamation of 1763 was founded.
The Proclamation of 1763
Another thing the British did to create tension was called the Quartering Act. The Quartering act was when the British called over soldiers from England to protect the colonists from the Native Americans. The Native Americans never tried to harm the colonists, so the soldiers were basically useless. The colonists were forced by British law to house, clothe, and feed the soldiers. The colonists were furious because they worked their butts off to earn everything they had, and now they were being forced to give it away.

The Boston Tea Party
The Boston Tea Party was a time when the colonists strongly disliked the British. Because of this, the British closed down all tea companies because the colonists loved tea, and they were only allowed to buy from the British East India Company. Colonists refused to buy it, so a group of men dressed up as Native Americans and threw in 90,000 pounds of loose tea into the Boston Harbor.
