  • The French and Indian War began in 1754 and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The war provided Great Britain enormous territorial gains in North America, but disputes over subsequent frontier policy and paying the war's expenses led to colonial discontent, and ultimately to the American Revolution.
  • The Stamp Act law imposed a tax on every legal document, newspaper, pamplet and deck of cards into the colonies.
  • Groups Sons of liberty and daughters of liberty continued with Acts of resistance until the start of the Revolutionary War. They also started their own rules and government.
  • The British troops opened a crowd of protesters outside of the custom house in Boston. This convinced many colonists that the British government would use military force to make them obey the laws. 
  • The Sons and daughter of Liberty continued with acts of resistance until the start of Revolution War. There were two events that resulted in violence: The Boston Massacre and The Boston Tea Party.
