History @Reed

The British and the colonists had many conflicts in the time before the American Revolution. What conclusion can be made about why so much conflict occurred in Boston?
The king wanted to control Boston because the wealthiest colonists lived there.

The British did not like Boston because most colonists there did not own slaves.

The people of Boston were taxed by the king, while Southern colonies were not.

The king was enforcing more policies in Boston as an example to all the colonies.

  3. Yep, you got it! As for the other question about "justification," Ms. Sue seems to disagree with me. The Stamp Act WAS designed to impose taxes to help Britain with it's French and Indian War debt. Maybe that IS what would be considered correct.

  5. The word "justification" is the one that I'm hung up on here, because there was no explicit "justification" for the Stamp Act, although it's intent was clear.

  7. Okay, as I read the history, the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts were both intended to tax the colonies to help Britain pay off it's debts from the War. The Declaration did not impose any new taxes, but justified making the colonies more dependent on the Crown/British government, so I interpret that as "justification" for the taxes. It's not a word that was used at the time, but our interpretation of it in our own time.
