The Parliament ( British Government ) has just decided to tax the colonists instead of paying for the French & Indian War because it was costing them a lot of money. They taxed items such as sugar, tea, stamps, paper goods, and other goods coming into colonies
Why don't we tax the colonists instead of paying for the war.
Sure, that's a great idea
However, the colonists were angry about the new taxes. In New Jersey and other colonies, colonists met to discuss the taxes. The colonists sent representatives to speak in front of the Parliament. In Massachusetts, a group was formed. They called themselves the Sons of Liberty.
This won't happen !
The Sons of Liberty dump British tea in the Boston Harbor.
