ABSTRACT
From the late 1600s to the mid-1700s, there were several wars over ownership of the colonies. Battles between Great Britain and France were fought in Europe and North America. The fourth and final of these wars was known in the colonies as the French and Indian War, 1754-1763. In 1763, Britain won the war and took control of all French lands. Now, however, Britain needed more money to pay for the war and to settle and protect its new land. To get the money, King George III began to add taxes to the price of glass, paper, tea, paint and other goods.
