Briefly explain ONE response by the British government to the action explained in Part B.
3 Example Answer 1Contact between Native Americans and Europeans brought about drastic changes to the Native American’s way of life. The biggest change was the loss of live caused within the Native American societies by the introduction of European diseases. The Native Americans had no immunities to these diseases and as a result entire populations were decimated and others lost so many that they had to merge their societies/tribes.Another drastic change was the introduction of European flora and fauna. The horse in particular caused many tribes to change their entire way of life and even where they lived.An obvious example of how Native American societies resisted change brought about by the Europeans is the open violence and conflict between the two, such as Metacom’s Rebellion.
4 Example Answer 2An economic pressure faced by the colonies during this time was the series of laws/taxes passed by Parliament to control colonial trade and increase revenue from the colonies. These included the enforcement of the Navigation Acts as well as the Sugar Act, Stamp Act, the Townsend Acts and the Tea Act.An action taken by the colonies to address these laws/taxes were to create nonimportation agreements in an effort to encourage colonists to boycott British goods – and the Sons of Liberty used various means to encourage the colonists to support the nonimportation agreements.A response by the British to the early nonimportation agreements was to actually remove the taxes, usually at the urging of British merchants who were losing money from lost trade.
