  • Of course! Just picture this...
  • It all started with the French and Indian War. The British and The Indians were fighting. The British won the war but, they needed to pay for the land. The king had no more money to pay for it because he had spent all his money paying for troops and soliders going to fight. Also, for all the weapons. So, he asked the colonists to pay for the land but they said no. So the king raised taxes on everyday things so that he could get back the money that was lost because of the war. The Townshend Act was a type of tax. The Townshend act was announced in 1767 by Charles Townshend. He was A man in charge of England's finances. The Townshend Act put taxes on paint, glass, and tea. People were starting to get really mad.(This is said by Mr. Jackson to Shelia)
