Chapter summary:



The British colonists in America grew up through the late 1600s and 1700s. They were becoming “Americans.” The Americans & British fought together to defeat the French in the French and Indian War. After the war was over the British government began a more “hands-on” policy in the colonies. A policy of higher taxation would be met with an uproar of protest. Soldiers were sent to the colonies to keep the peace and the opposite occurred. Americans would go from loyal subjects of the king, to a people who seemed ready for independence.
