summary
Summary
  • In this chapter you have read about some of the events, from 1754 to 1774, that created tension between GB and the colonists. You used the metaphor of a parent and a child to describe the relationship.
  • The British behaved like concerned parents who protected their children. GB thought the colonies should be grateful and respect the British authority. But, like growing children, the colonies wanted to have a greater role in making their own decisions. They did not like GB’s efforts to control them. When GB ignored their complaints, the colonists protested, sometimes violently. By 1775, both sides were angry.
