1. The Question How did colonial Americans react to British policies following the French and Indian War? The British won the French and Indian War, but it was expensive. Since the British people were already heavily taxed, and the war was fought mainly to defend American colonies, the British Parliament decided to tax the colonists. Some colonists (Loyalists) supported the British government’s position that the colonists should help to finance a war that was fought on their behalf. Other (Patriots) insisted that they should only be taxed by their own elected representatives Next Last update: November 2010, by Michael Morgan Created by Phyllis Fullem BCPS Research Module or Slam Dunk Model, Copyright 2005, Baltimore County Public Schools, MD, all rights reserved.
