(100 word response) How did he force payment of taxes dealing with the colonies? In April 1763, George Grenville came into the office as the Prime Minister. There was massive that the British government incurred during the Seven Year’s war, and there was a need for a way to pay it off. “To raise revenue, Grenville mandated that the British government should shift some of the cost of the war to the American colonies by restructuring colonial governance and increasing national revenue” (Brooks, 2016). On top of the Navigation Acts and Trade Acts, Grenville proposed the Stamp Act, Currency Act, and the Sugar Act. These Acts came to be known as the Grenville Acts. In all of my readings, it appears that Grenville’s attempts to collect these taxes never worked. The colonists protested against the Acts and formed the Sons of Liberty. The colonies opposition of the Tea Act fueled the Boston Tea Party, and the rest, as they say is history. Brooks, R.B. (2016, March 30). What Was the British Policy of Salutary Neglect?
