French and Indian War
Transcript of French and Indian War
~During the war, King George III was plotting on how to get out of the major war debt he was gaining for himself. He came up with a solution: tax the American colonists on everything. He had parliament pass the Sugar Act of 1764, the Townshend Act of 1767, and the Stamp Act of 1765. Eventually, all these taxes were repealed, but these ridiculous tariffs made the colonists angry. The American colonists decided to react. On December 16, 1773 fifty men known as "The Sons of Liberty" dressed up as mohawk indians waited for the English tea ships to dock in American harbors. While the British weren't looking, they dumped 90,000 pounds of tea into the Atlantic ocean.
