Taxation without Representation by: Mrs. Pittman
As a result they got a lot of money and great Britain had debt. So they had to protect the colonies. But this is not war. They just needed money. At the end the colonist did not seem to like it.

Merchants that boycotted the people who sold these goods.
Tariff or tax including paper,wool,glass,paint,led.Townshend made money for Great Britain. Colonists boycotted many of the taxed items. The colonist acted and that ended in a chain reaction of boycotts.
