A struggle between the British and the French. Colonists fought for the British, while the Native Americans fought for the French. The British won, receiving all lands east of the Mississippi River, except new Orleans. Colonists were not allowed to settle the land they helped win. Colonists were taxed to pay the war cost.

was a revenue-raising act passed by the Parliament of Great Britain on April 5, 1764. The Sugar Act Taxed Sugar
The Stamp Act was a tax on every sheet of every legal document. Cause: Britain needed money because they were in debt from the war so they taxed the colonists. Effect: The colonists boycotted British goods. They also organized the Sons of Liberty
The Townshend Acts used all the money collected for imported goods to pay the salaries of British soldiers. The Townshend Acts also caused a tax for glass, lead, paint, paper, and tea. Cause: Britain still needed money, but they needed a way to tax the colonies “without offense.” Effect: The colonists boycotted British goods again.
The Boston Massacre was a clash between British troops and a group of colonists in which five colonists were killed. Cause: After lots of ridicule, the tension finally broke. Some colonists started throwing snowball in front of the Boston Customhouse. The soldiers became nervous and started shooting. Effect: The Soldiers were acquitted and the Townshend Acts were repealed.
The Tea Act was a tax on all imported tea from Britain. Cause: The colonists boycott against British goods had hurt their trade, so the British repealed the Townshend Acts after the Boston Massacre. Parliament only kept the tea tax. Effect: The Sons of Liberty organized a protest against the Tea Act known as the Boston Tea Party.
The Boston Tea Party was a protest organized by the colonists against the British. All the colonists dressed up as Indians and snuck on- board the British ships in the harbor. Then they threw all the tea on the ships into Boston Harbor. Cause: The colonists were upset by the Tea Act. Effect: The Intolerable Acts were passed to keep the colonists under control.
The Intolerable Acts were four strict laws that gave the British a sense of more control over the colonies. (1) they closed down the port of Boston until the colonists paid for all of the tea they threw into Boston Harbor. (2)they forbade any meetings without the governor’s permission. (3)they made the colonists house and feed British troops. Finally, instead of British officials being tried for crimes in the colonies, they would be tried in Britain. (4) King George the third appointed General Thomas Gage the new governor of Massachusetts. Cause: The Boston Tea Party. Effect: The colonists formed the 1 st Continental Congress.
