    Events After the French and Indian Wars

    Navigation Acts – colonies can’t trade with other countries for goods that England sells

    Writ of Assistance – English customs inspectors can search anywhere to find smuggled goods, then arrest the smugglers (colonists got angry)

    Sugar Act – enforced an old, unused tax on sugar; 3 cents per gallon because England needed to raise money to pay for war debts

    Currency Act – colonists wouldn’t be allowed to print their own paper money, must use British money

    Quartering Act – colonists must pay for housing and supplies for British soldiers living in America (colonists got angry)

    Stamp Act – colonists had to pay taxes on paper goods like newspapers, pamphlets, legal documents, cards; (in 1765, delegates from 9 colonies met to discuss this; the group was called the Stamp Act Congress; they decided to refuse to pay any tax they don’t help create)

    Declaratory Act – Parliament can pass any law it wants in order to regulate colonies

    Townshend Acts – taxed household goods when they arrived at port; customs officials collected the tax; this made the goods more expensive to buy; (colonists decided to boycott those items and the Sons of Liberty helped them)

    Tea Tax – 1773 – England wanted colonists to buy tea from England even though they could get it cheaper buying it somewhere else; (Sam Adams organized the Boston Tea Party)

    Coercive Acts – to punish the colonists for Boston Tea Party, England put the colony of Massachussetts under martial law and took away all of their rights; (neighboring colonists sent food and money to Boston to help them out)
