Your colonies were growing too rapidly and were very intimidating! We trusted them more!
What! Paper only costs $1!
Well, the stamp cost money too you know... all paper items require a stamp which costs extra.
That will be $1.89 please.
I'd rather buy American made goods! Or make my own tea!
We should protest! Let's not buy anymore British goods.
Townshend Acts Taxes on paint, glass, lead, and tea. Sincerely, the British
The French and the Indians felt threatened by English because their colony settlements were growing so fast. They traded with each other and eventually became allies. Together, they felt more secure and powerful against the British. This led up to a battle between both groups, which was later ended because of a treaty.
The Stamp Act was an extra tax on paper products that require stamps. This was passed on by the British government because the French and Indian war lost them a lot of money. There were some people who protested by burning important documents. And more peaceful approaches like sending letters and starting a boycott.
Townshend Acts were also taxation in goods imported from Britain, like paint, glass, paper, and tea. They were started by Charles Townshend because he believed more troops were needed to control the colonists' bad behavior. Once again, the people refused to pay these additional fees and boycotted these British goods. eventually, the head of the government, Lord North, repealed taxes for these goods, except for tea. tea was still taxed because King George still wanted to profit in some way.
