This was a process...something that was about 10 years in the making!Steps taken by colonists BEFORE war:1. Simple protests / public speeches2. Creation of slogans "No Taxation without Representation"3. Formation of Groups to discuss taxes and protest (Sons of Liberty / Daughters of Liberty)4. Formation of groups to inform others of events / news (Committees of Correspondence)5. Boycott of taxed goods (refusal to buy them - get them elsewhere or make their own)6. Meetings for unity - Stamp Act Congress in NY7. Wrote letters to the King / Parliament in England8. Attack / Violence / Scare tactics of tax collectors (Tar and Feathering)9.
