  • Townshend Act/Reaction
  • The Sugar and Stamp Act, passes a year after on-another (1764 and 1765), was to try and receive revenue from the major amounts of sugar and paper items sold. Obviously it didn't really work as for most American colonists tried to boycott both of these implemented laws.
  • Boston Massacre
  • Started in 1765, boycotting started. American colonists weren't mad about having to pay taxes, they were mad because they got taxed without having a representative to actually assign their laws to them.
