AMERIC A’S BEGINNING ASA GROUP OF COLONIES Remember mercantilism – England used mercantilism to controlcolonial trade & increase their profits Despite these trade restrictions, the colonists made money tradingwith England England used a policy called salutary neglect which allowedcolonists freedom to make their own laws & taxes Americans created their own colonial assemblies & enjoyed selfgovernment 150 years – everything great and no conflict 1754 – France and England went to war over trade rights in theAmerican colonies. This was known as the French & Indian War. 1756 – England was fighting the same war in Europe, known asthe 7 Years War 1763 – England (Great Britain) won both wars England and France signed the Treaty of Paris – the Britishsaid they wouldn’t go pass the Mississippi River Left England in terrible debt

AMERICA’S BEGINNING AS AGROUP OF COLONIES After the war, England was hurting for cash – began taxing the colonists Sugar Act – taxed all sugar and molasses (wait, remember the Triangle Trade) Stamp Act - required all printed materials (documents, playing cards, newspapers, etc.)to carry a stamp showing a tax had been paid. How to pay? The colonists! The colonist upset the British Parliament would do this without giving the colonist avoice Their slogan – “No taxation without representation!” “Why should I trade 1 tyrant 3,000 miles away for 3,000 tyrants 1 mile away”https://youtu.be/EGgaXXBkE8A Colonist response Boycott (refusal to buy) – British goods that were taxed, like playing cards and stamps The King and Parliament gave in, but took power away from the local colonialassemblies King George’s Response https://youtu.be/5JTxVHQAp8w
