Describe how after the French and Indian War, the British tightened their control over the colonies and then summarize the colonial responses.
After the French and Indian Wars, the British tightened control over the colonies by giving them more debts in the form of increased taxes. When the Native American War progresses after 1763, Britain passed many acts, including; the Quartering Act that restricted colonial settlement (Aldrich, 2018). Most American colonies felt that they were not supposed to pay the imposed taxes that were harshly passed by the parliament of England rather than their colonial governments. They decided to protest by not buying British goods and by boycotting.
