  • The French and Indian war was fought from 1754-1763. The French and Indians were fighting against the British and the Colonists. Both sides were fighting over land to create colonies in America. The British were victorious which resulted in high taxes and tariffs to the colonists and great debt that the British were in after fighting the war.

  • The Proclamation Line of 1763 prohibited colonists from moving anymore west than the Appalachian Mountains. The British did this so the colonists would have to settle to work in factories and not create their own farmland. They also did this because they did not want to interfere with the Native Americans an cause another war because they lacked the funds to do so. As a result, colonists felt as if they lost their rights and ability to move about freely.
  • The ProclamationLine of 1763
  • The Sugar Act was passed in 1764. There were very high taxes before this act was passed. This act was passed to reduce taxes that were imposed by the Molasses Act. This Act strengthened the collection of taxes meaning, that more colonists payed their taxes.

  • The Stamp Act was passed in 1765. It placed a British tax on colonial newspapers, legal documents, and more. The stamp was imprinted on the paper or document to show that you had to pay British taxes on it. Documents such as marriage licenses, and even land titles had this stamp on it.

  • The Boston Massacre happened in 1770. Violence broke out among the colonies and British soldiers had to be stationed in Boston.

  • The Boston Tea Party happened in 1773. Colonists dressed up as Native Americans and threw Tea into the Boston Harbor. They dressed up as Indians because they knew the colonists and British Soldiers would not worry about them because the British do not want to start another war.
