The French and Indians fought because of territory hand power. The British won and expanded their land. The war also lasted for seven years.
There were about 5 acts that the British placed on the Colonists. All of them were hated by the Colonists. The Colonists would protest all of the acts. But most of them were repealed because of the hatred that the acts had.
Colonists in Boston were protesting about the taxes to the British soldiers. As the Colonists grew more angry and moved toward the soldiers, the soldiers shot at the Colonists - killing 5 men.
