Let s make a deal

  • Sugar Act – lowered the tax on molasses

    • Officers could seize goods from smugglers without trial

  • James Otis – Boston lawyer

Stamp It Out

    • Boycott – refuse to buy

    • Nonimportation – pledge not to buy or use goods from a specific place

    • Repeal – cancel

    • It worked, but temporarily

  • The Declaratory Act - bill that gave the Parliament the right to tax and make decisions for the colonies

More taxes

  • Townshend Acts North America– taxes paid on colonist imported goods

    • Britain needed money, but saw that taxing the colonists within the colonies was not working

    • Glass, tea, paper, and lead

    • The colonists boycott these items

    • Daughters of Liberty - women who organized to protest and boycott British goods

      • Urged colonists to make homemade goods

      • Thus, becoming economically independent
