Colonist the French & Indian War is over and Great Britain must pay for the War. The British Crown sees the colonies as a great commodity to pay for the war. They know the resources and land in the colonies can provide money. The British Crown knows that money equals power too and that is what they love. The Crown first starts with using the resources provided by the land, but later start taxing the people to gain commerce. The crown asses an act restricting how far west the colonist can go. Their reasoning for this is to prevent Indian wars. Is the act really just to make it easier for the crown to control you? The Crown starts with taxes that only help the colonies themselves. Later they put taxes on the colonist to directly create commerce for the crown. The question you have to answer is should I stay or go? So, I ask you are you a loyalist or radical?
