In the 18th century, lots of immigrants came to America to make some money and used slaves to increase the production rate of work. However, colonists hit and even killed slaves. They did everyhing what they wanted to do. Therefore, for slaves to overcome this difficulties they adopt each other as their brothers and sisters.
British had to pay debt after the war so they charge a lot of taxes to 13 colonies in America. But, colonists thought that it wasn't unfair for them because they can't vote for the parliaments who will pass and make the laws for them but have to pay the taxes for the England. The Boston Tea party was a decisive action because they were protesting against the British to listen to their assertion. and I agree with the protestors because every human are born equal but the laws were unfair for them.

At that time, Boston Tea Party had a huge aftereffect that led the independent from England. After the seven years war that broke out between French and Indian, England assumed the great deal of war debt so England passed the law, which collected taxes from colonists. They collected taxes if colonists bought the newspaper, magazine and sugar. The purpose of Boston tea party was showing their desire to resist from tax their ridiculous laws. I agree with organization, which strove to resist from England called Sons of Liberty because at that time, although they pay taxes for it, they had not opportunity for voting and representation. bounce

Through the seven years’ war between France and British, England spent lots of money for the war. They thought that America as their colonies would help them to win the war but they sell their goods to France and England, too. So, they were angry to them. After the war, England needed money to recover their economy, and they started to collect so much tax from America. They taxed every good from America, and America started to get angry to England. As they showed their complaint, they dress up as Indian and throw teas from England. They started boycott the America’s imports.

I agree with San’s opinion. Through the seven years’ war between France and British, England spent lots of money for the war. They needed more money to regenerate their country. The one of easiest way was collecting tax from America and they just levied higher tax from America. So America got angry about that event and they raised the Boston Tea Party.

During the Seven Years' War, with American militia, British also fought in America. After the war, they need money for war debt. So they made several tax acts. Grenville's Sugar Act was one of them and it levied a tax on molasses which is required to make rum. Because there were many people who loved rum, The Sugar Act was not good to American. Another one is The Stamp Act. It levied a tax on any paper like newspaper, pamphlet, document, and so on. Because of those acts, American colonists started to resist. At that time, slaves' life was also terrible. They treated like owner's item. They could be killed if their owner wanted to do it. Also, they were often whipped and beaten.

I agree with Dongjin's idea. It's true that at that time, they really need money because they lost many things after The Seven Years' War. But they were too greedy. Although Americans also fought, they thought Americans must give money to them because they helped them. Of course, their greedy acts made a problem.

The English put the tax on every tea coming into America because they needed money to pay their war debt. The Americans were angry about this because they didn't want to pay the tax. The Sons of Liberty were angry because of this and they threw all the tea into the sea. This rebellion is called the Boston Tea Party. Taxation without representation means that people living in Boston do not want to pay taxes to a nation that does not represent them. The English did not respond as they wanted so the Sons of Liberty fight for their rights.

I agree with San's opinion. The tax laws in America that English had put into was ridiculous. Even though the English had a huge amount of debt after the 7 years of war, it is wrong to put tax onto colonies. Therefore, I also agree on San and the Sons of Liberty.

I agree with kyutae's opinion. British had to make some profits from colonists to pay the war debt. Therefore, they did tax acts like kyutae said, which made colonists to rebel against the British. In addition, as kyutae said, slaves were treated as the owner's property so they were treated badly.

I fully agree with saodami's opinion. England spent great deal of money for seven years war. so British government passed the laws that have to pay taxes about sugar, and every newspaper. so American joined forces to resist together from British government.
