victory. The british left the indians with no allies by taking away all french land and giving it to the spanish.
The Proclamation of 1763
The Proclamation of 1763 was established after a series of indian attack lead by chief Pontiac. It prevented all westward expansion beyond the appalations. This deeply angered the colonists who thought that England was restricting their rights.
George Greenville was responsible for the passing of; The Stamp Act, The Quartering Act,
The Sugar Act, and The Admiralty Courts in order to pay debt for the the war.
- The Stamp act: taxed all published documents, letters, newspapers, dice, ect. it caused an uproar amongst the colonist who believed that they owed nothing.
- The Sugar act 1764 passed by parliament was the first act to raise tax revenue.
- The Quartering Act really angered colonist. no one wanted to be forced to house, feed and take care of british soldiers it also jeopardized the rights of colonists.
- The admiralty courts were hated because there where no juries and were biased for Britain.

1765 - Sons and Daughters of liberty provided violence to the organized protests. They used mobs, hanging and bribery to control british tax collectors.
1765 - Boycotts These boycotts were used to provoke England to eventually repeal the stamp act.

1766 - The Sons and Daughters of liberty helped the process along with boycotts organized by the Stamp Act congress. These boycotts really hurt the English economy which caused an angry England to repeal the act in 1766
1766 - The Declaratory Act was an extremely irrelevant act in which Britain declared that they had the right to pass any act that they saw fit.
The Townshend act of 1767 Placed high duties on lead, glass, paper, paint, and tea The already rowdy colonists were disturbed even further by these taxes and sparked the no taxation without representation idea.
The Boston Massacre 1767 was caused by the rowdy rabble of Boston who antagonized a group of British officers forcing them to fire in self defense.

Lord North was a British Prime minister who was
responsible for the three pence tax on tea and led
Samuel to create the Committee of Correspondence.
Tea Act/ Boston Tea Party

The Intolerable Acts
