The French and Indian War: Stirring the Pot

At the conclusion of the French and Indian War, the national debt of England was nearly doubled and the Crown was looking for any kind of source to pay off that debt. So their eyes turned to the colonies, who had so honorably fought for England during the war. They attempted to impose new taxes on the colonies, but these attempts were met with strict resistance. The Crown ended up having to send troops to the colonies so that representatives of the Crown could safely perform their duties!
