The 13 colonies were living peacefully with their assemblies for each colony.
Taxes, Taxes, and More Taxes
I DECLARE TAXES ON EVERYTHING!!
Britain grew furious, jealous, and wanted the colonies all to itself, so Washington sent 1,400 britain soldiers over to virginia. Their job was to clear out the French from ohio valley. The other colonies highly disagreed.
Just One Tax
The only tax is on tea!
Even though the british won the war it created a large debt for them. To solve this conflict, they created the townshend act. It's where everything coming and going from Britain was taxed.
Peace at last!
The tension between Britain and France was very strong. Nobody was happy until tons of people started boycotting british goods.
NO WE AREN'T PAYING IT!
When parliament realized this, they took away taxes on everything except, tea.
The tension level went from super high to very controlled because of this act. Therefore, the tension between the two colonies is no longer strong.
