Causes of the American Revolution
This storyboard does not have a description.
To manage the territory the British controlled, much of North America, King George III issued the Proclamation of 1863. The Proclamation of 1863 prohibited colonists from living west of the Appalachian Mountains, on Native American land.
Great Britain needed new income to pay for the troops of the French and Indian War. The British government made new taxes on the colonies, because Parliament and the King thought they should pay part of the debt. The Sugar Act of 1764, lowered the tax on the molasses the colonists imported.
Colonies were angry and they believed that other laws violated their rights. They also thought that they should be in their homes secured without any threats. As a basic right colonists accepted "no taxation without representation." Parliament passed the Stamp Act of 1765, the law taxed almost all printed goods.
The British were taught that by the Stamp Act that the colonists would resist internal conflicts. The Townshend Act of 1767 was to tax imports. The tax was paid when the goods arrived. This Act was passed by Parliament.
