“All they asked for was loyalty and money for debt due to the war’ (Gregg 1). So therefore, the ones being unfair were the Colonists because all they had to do was pay taxes and be loyal to Great Britain. Another reason the Colonists wanted to depart from Great Britain is because the English King chose a judge and was sent to the colonies from London. So basically, the Colonists were British subjects and responded to a British judge. The Colonists argued that the British did not understand the life the Colonies lived, which would lead to poor judging by the British because they lived different lives.
The Americans faced taxes such as the Sugar Act, Stamp Act and Townshend Act due to Britain having to make up for the money they had lost to war. The people of America essentially felt that Britain was being unreasonable “for imposing taxes on us without our consent”. The taxes were passed by Parliament in which there were no American representation. This lead to Americans protesting the taxes that lacked representation and the Virginia House of Burgess stating that "the taxation of the people by themselves, or by persons chosen by themselves to represent them... is the only security against a burdensome taxation, and [is] the distinguishing characteristic of British freedom". The Stamp Act caused Americans to protest and refuse to buy or import British goods.
She keeps replaying the picture of William Sutch, the cereal killer kidnaper who police have been looking for half of a year. As she flips the bacon on the stove her bedroom door opens revealing the television screen with a picture of a man in his late forties, bald top head, and long gray hair flowing down over his shoulders, his eyes shaded by glasses that hang low on his nose. He is even creepier looking into his dark eyes then imagining then in her head. She jumps from her thought as she hears the family dog Chloe bark from outside. Walking over to the door she notices it is not locked and calls to her husband, "Mathew you have to remember to lock the doors at night, especially since that creep is on the loose."
The battle of Lexington and Concord, a very famous battle in history, but why. Why is this event so important to are history that the story of its legacy gets passed on from generation to generation? In the 1700s The British finally won the French and Indian war at an extremely large expense. The British started to tax the new world for all that they had lost and blamed them for some of their expenses. The Boston Tea Party, Sugar Act, Tea Act, and Stamp Act all helped to inflame each side in this and help each side to grow hatred for eachother.
The essay Inequality Undermines Democracy by Eduardo Porter discusses the income gap in today’s world. The first main point Porter describes how Americans are not concerned with the income gap even though it is wider than other developed countries. The United States government has expressed little concern over this issue as well since they have done little to anything to restrain the trend. I believe this has caused opportunities across classes to shrink and the middle class does not exist anymore. I would consider my family a working middle class and I hear my family talking about how the middle class has diminished and it is either the rich or the poor.
Then on November 1, 1765 the Stamp Act took effect. Patriot mobs called The Sons of Liberty, attacked stamp distributor Andrew Oliver’s house in protest. The idea of the higher taxes didn’t upset the colonists because they were willing to pay taxes passed by their own assemblies. The thing that upset them was, they had no representatives in Parliament so
As a Patriot, I believe that Britain is a very cruel country that is ruining our lives. With the high taxes and the harsh laws, they are just taking our money and our ability to live our lives on our own, without any force from anyone else. I want my fellow colonists to live a life without pain and suffering. I would like them to live a free life, not a life controlled by the British. Would you like to life a life where you are forced to pay high taxes to a king who is abusing power?
The Loyalists are subjects of the British Parliament and don’t worry about paying the tax and are okay with whatever rule England imposes. The Patriots on the other hand, don’t agree with the British Parliament, and have big issues with paying for the paper goods. As James Otis had said, “Taxation without representation is tyranny!” Here in Boston, all the Patriots are rebelling by boycotting paper goods, stoning tax collectors or burning their houses, and protesting. A patriot group called Sons of Liberty was started in each colony to fight for justice, and they rebelled against the Parliament, as no one want to pay the biased
4. How did the Great War for Empire change the relationship between England and its American colonies? The Great War for Empire, or Seven Years’ War went on between 1756 and 1763. The unfair taxation of the colonists is what sparked this war; there were also several other political and economic factors, which also played a large part. Since trade was boosted, Americans came to accumulate a large amount of debt to the British creditors.
Charanjit’s mother cooks an assortment of delicious Indian dishes, often preparing Roti with different types of Sabzi (vegetables cooked in gravy).

Although he doesn’t cook very often, when he does step foot in the kitchen the family knows that the food will be amazing.
The Parliament passes the Tea Act in 1773. From then on the course of history will have many more down hills throughout the years. Some background information is that the colonist were mad at the government and at england because they were putting taxes on the people out there conscient the colonist didn’t want anything to do with England so they boycott the shipping orders coming in and had The Daughters of Liberty make clothing for them. The Tea Act cause the colonists to be mad at England and ultimately lead to their showing of anger in the Boston Tea party, both events impacted the American Revolution. The Tea Acts passed by Parliament started the colonists down the path of anger.
Then, the king heavily taxed us for buying these goods. Also, the British could search any ship they wanted, so they didn’t let us receive sugar from other countries. The Stamp Act also was very unfair. This was when England made the colonists only buy paper with the English stamp on it. Every paper product had to be made out of it, and this special paper had a heavy tax on it.
The point of the party was to protest the new taxes, it was a very iconic event in American history which eventually led to the American revolution. Let us go back a little bit because the party was an extremely iconic event that made a lasting imprint on U.S. History. After a very long and costly war with France and England, King George and British Parliament needed to figure out a way to start recovering all the money lost, so what better than to tax the people to help raise money to pay off the massive debts. They chose to place this tax on tea sold in both England and its colonies. Their thoughts were that people would rather pay a tax than give up their daily tea.
In the mid to late 1700s England’s period of little involvement with the American colonies came to an end. When the British came over to fight, and eventually win, for the Americas they finally saw how much had developed. The British victory over the French in North America inevitably led to the American Revolution because it caused massive debt for England, and it ended the Era of Salutatory Effect for the colonists The British involvement in the French and Indian war ended up putting them in severe debt. Wars are expensive endeavors, the country must provide soldiers with food, clothing, weapons, transportation, payment for their services, and compensate families for losses. During the French and Indian war, also known by England as the
