The tax on sugar is very expensive...
but one of the most frustrating tax witch was a tax on all molasses and sugar and also the navigation act witch did not allow the colonies trade with anybody else. With all of the harsh laws and taxes the colonials wanted a voice so they responded.
The colonials developed many responses including major vandalism like the boston tea party of witch Colonists snuck onto British ships and disposed of all of the tea with the ocean. And the horrible torture technique of witch the colonists would pour hot tar and feathers on British officials
And another response was Paul Reveres Ride and first battle where him and another solider ride into the towns to warn the colonists of incoming British attacks.
But the final straw for the Colonists was the intimate Declaration of Independence. witch was a document stating that the colonists wanted to be free and this was the treaty for it
This treaty turned into a large revolutionary war with many alleys and many years of fighting and death to go with it. The British had 2 army they fought with the normal British army (Redcoats) and a paid army called the Hessians.
The Colonials only had help from french and ended up winning with loss of lives, debt, and a loss of a major trading partner. But the Colonials were happy to be the United States of America.
