Why did the colonists feel that they should not have to pay British war debt

Oct 14th, 2014

Many colonists felt that they should not pay these taxes, 

because they were passed in England by Parliament, not by their 

own colonial governments. They protested, saying that these 

taxes violated their rights as British citizens. 

The colonists started to resist by boycotting, or not buying, 

British goods. In 1773 some colonists in Boston, Massachusetts 

demonstrated their frustration by dressing up like Indians, 

sneaking onto ships in the harbor, and dumping imported tea into 

the water. This was called the Boston Tea Party. The British 

took action by closing the Boston port. A similar but smaller tea 

party took place in Yorktown, Virginia in 1774.
