  1. There was no single event that caused this war. Hostility had been building among the colonists because of being heavily taxed and not being able to vote on these taxes.

    Do you think the war was avoidable?

  2. Thanks so much Ms. Sue.This is what I have so far can you tell me what you think and if you have any more ideas that i can add to make it better would be great.
    The French and Indian War left Great Britain in much debt. To pay off war debt and cover the cost of administering the colonies Great Britain passed a series of acts. These acts included increased taxes, violent ways of collecting them and harsh methods of enforcing these measures. The colonists opposed these measures because they were not involved in the decisions Britain made on their behalf. The colonists wanted to be a part of making decisions as to how much and the way in which they would be taxed. Tension and aggression among colonists arose tremendously causing them to rebel by staging boycotts, writing news articles and even rioting.
