Tobacco, again one of the enumerated products, had to go through an English port and pay customs before it was sold on home or foreign markets.
The document “Colonists Encroach on the Stanwix Line”, records a speech made by a Native American, John Killbuck to the governors of three separate English Colonies. He tells of the English and other European Settlers invading Naive American lands base on their own greed and compete against one another. The English haven’t always agreed on bringing about peaceful compromises on the lands they and other European Nations have conquered, instead, wars erupted and whoever were the victors reaped all the rewards, land that consisted of Native American tribes. The Native had tried to make a peaceful compromise of a land dispute by setting a boundary between Native American tribes and the English Colonies. However, with the increase of Europeans flooding
Johnson will serve as a Connecticut agent, to help put the colony’s title on a Native American land. While Johnson is at Britain, he will soon realize that Britain’s policy is mostly made up of American’s conditions. When the Patriots become wild up with their demands, Johnson knew that he couldn’t be part of the Patriots actions. Johnson agrees that the Patriots were correct about their actions but he have trouble from breaking up with his mother country.

I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are: Hope, the army needs me, and for my family and the hope of surviving. The event that caused this whole war to occur were the protesting and the Boston Tea party that happened in 1773. I felt that the Boston Tea Party was a right and wrong decision when it happened because we should not use violence to cooperate with our “enemies”, we should use reason. Even though the British kind of deserved that protest.
Before conflict started to erupt between the British and the American colonists, there was the end of the French-Indian War in 1763. The British government was given enormous territorial gains from the war and many of the colonists were eager to move westward onto new, fresh land, especially considering that the colonists had claimed that land in the war. However, to improve Native American relations, the British issued The Royal Proclamation of 1763, which declared the boundaries of the thirteen colonies to be the Appalachian Mountains. The British government saw the proclamation not as oppressive, but as a fair way to prevent more Native American-colonial conflict and in no way expected colonial resentment. Yet, countless American colonists were enraged by this proclamation.

These boycotts against British shipping were the best manner for the colonists to demonstrate their distain for British rule. In Virginia, the boycott of the ports was a significant move that ultimately pushed the citizens in the area towards independence. The other cause that pushed the gentry to revolution stemmed from the unforeseen consequences of their boycott of British shipping. This would result in their protests of 1774 turning into the revolutionary movement of 1775 up until the Treaty of Paris in 1783 that ended the war, giving independence to the United States (Holton xviii). Referred to as Non-exportation, this protest was directly against the Coercive Acts that Parliament adopted for the colonies (Holton 124).
Yet, they decided to not expand and create a border between the new land and the Colonies believing that it was unsafe due to the Native American tribes. The British Empire let the French expand south to the new conquered land. This move made the colonists not happy which made them start small rebel moves against the Empire. In 1765 General Gage requested addition troops in the Colonies for safety reasons. The Quartering Act was created.

Many countries attempted to start colonies after the New World was discovered. During the late 1500’s England attempted to settle a permanent colony in present day North Carolina. Their purpose for sailing over to the New World was to interfere the shipping for Spain. With a blessing from Queen Elizabeth of England, Sir Walter Raleigh set off to the New World with the help of Philip Amadas and Arthur Barlowe in command of the ships. The first of the Roanoke Voyages came in 1584.
