In the late 1700’s, the American colonies lived under British rule, had a great relationship with England, trade was healthy, and the colonies prospered. In the meantime, England had fought a long and victorious war with France and had accumulated a lot of debt that they needed to repay.
To do that, King George and Parliament put aggressive taxes in place that other British citizens did not have to pay. These new taxes enraged the colonists.
A radical movement formed in Boston called the Sons of Liberty for the purpose of protesting the taxes through violence and intimidation. They were very effective and were instrumental in getting act such as the Stamp Act, and others, repealed.
