What were some ways of colonial protest against the British between 1763-1775
1 Answer | add yours
There were many ways in which the colonists protested against British actions between 1763 and 1775. The most important of these were violent protests and economic protests.
Some American protests were violent. These included such things as physical attacks on tax collectors. There was even an incident in which the home of Acting Governor Thomas Hutchinson of Massachusetts was attacked and ransacked by a mob.
Other American protests were more economic in nature. The most important of these was the nonimportation movement. This movement encouraged Americans to refrain from buying British goods because of things like the Stamp Tax. These were quite successful in getting the British to change some of their policies, though of course they did not prevent the war from occurring.
