Colonist and British relationship after the French and Indian War
The Colonists and the British had no tension prior to the start of the war. They both got resources from one another, so they fed off each other. The British allowed for free governing colonies, so the colonies were happy.
During the war, the Colonists and the British maintained a good relationship. There were little to no Patriots that disagreed with the British crown. The main problems started after the war, when the debt was dumped on the colonists.
After the war, the British and Colonist relationship went downhill. They ended up winning the war, but it made the British greedy with their power and they started taxing the Colonists uncontrollably. This made the colonists revolt against the throne of England in 1776.
