“ before the dumping of the tea, there was an act made that when tea entered Boston all tea was taxed 3 pence a pound”(Macaulay). The east india company was the ones to tax the tea. Britain a wasn 't too pleasant about the tea dumping so they passed an act for instance. “The intolerable act where the American patriots term for a group of punitive laws passed by the British parliament in 1774 after the Boston tea party”(Walker). After the act was passed everyone who was apart of the dumping went separate ways to the loyal nine.
The expedition reached its furthest point on twelfth March 1488. Bartolomeu Dias wanted to continue sailing towards India but he was forced to turn back because his crew refused to sail any further. It was then on the returning voyage he discovered The Cape of Good Hope on May, 1488. He returned to Lisbon in the month of December later on that year after an absence of over sixteen months. The discovery of this passage was very important to the Europeans, because they realized that they could trade directly with India and some parts of Asia bypassing the land route through the Middle East.
Even though Native Americans excited longer, the history of the United States usually begins with its discovery in 1492 and the first colonies which were founded by European settlers. The settlements all started in 1588 with Britain’s victory over the Spanish Armada which made England the world’s number one sea power. Due to that, they were able to acquire more colonies. This is what marked the beginning of the First British Empire, to which New England also belonged in the beginning. England’s reasons for building the First Empire were commercial and military interests.
For example, The Declaratory act was in favor of the British since there was no opposing force upon its upbringing, due to the colonist basically ignoring its presence. Continuing to celebrate the repeal of a previous policy gave the British government space to work with in order to conjure up more policies, hurting the colonists. Unlike the reaction of the Declaratory act, the Tea Act, respectively, withdrew an exaggerated response from the colonials. The Boston Tea Party is the iconic ideal of outraged responses, puting the British in deeper debt than before. While this was a huge inconvenience to the British it was harder on the colonials when backlash occurred, resulting in a full drive towards independence from Britain, winning the American Revolutionary War, and squandering all British control.
Britain and her crown jewel of imperialism A question toiled over for centuries by historians. What was the effect of British imperialism on india? Was it negative or positive? We delve into such a topic today, but first, how did the British get to India? While the Mughal empire was collapsing (the last seat of power before the British came) The East India Company came Hailing from the great British empire to seek out India’s potential and profit.
The people of Great Britain were already being taxed heavily, while the colonists had the lightest taxes of the entire British Empire. After the King’s first failed attempt at separating the colonists and American Indians during the Proclamation of 1763, he needed money to pay for the 7,500 soldiers he put on their new territory to keep peace between the colonists and the American Indians. Word of the new act reached the colonists in April 1765 and the protests continued throughout the year. Despite the colonists’ protests, the Stamp Act was approved on March 22, 1765. Then on November 1, 1765 the Stamp Act took effect.
Europe was in the process of developing a widespread trade route. These ships that were deployed out on the said trade routes obtained many priceless spices including cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and others. In 1599 the Dutch sent out 8 ships, only four arrived back after the fourteen month journey (Doc. 8). The amount of ships that were sent on the voyage to get these items displayed that they were of great value and importance.
Spain realized the riches of the new world such as gold, silver, and the natives who could be used for slaves. They became the leading export out of the Americas in the 1500s. The treaty of Tordesillas divided the north and south between the Spanish and Portuguese but by the 1600s other Europeans nations disputed these term.

The British Parliament passed the Tea Act on April 27, 1773 which was a import tax and it raised the price of tea to three cents per pound on all tea sent to America. It took three months for the colonist to hear about the new tax and the were not happy about it when they found out. On November 5, 1773 there was a town meeting a Faneuil Hall.

Page 119- “New England’s rum distillers led the opposition to the new rules by helping to organize a boycott of imports from Britain.” Response - In this passage, New England had distilling due to the rum’s popularity in the colonies since there were only a few choices of alcoholic beverages.

This started the American revolution because of the dispute of trading. Journal #9.
The Sugar Act raised the issue of unfair taxation. Since the American colonies are one of the few that would buy sugar from the British West Indies, the Sugar Act really only applied to the colonists and not the other British citizens. During the Sugar Act the first organized protests were held against the British authorities defying the Sugar Act. Every once in a while there would be violent outbursts against the British authorities. These outbursts were especially in New York and Rhode Island.
