The American Revolution British-French Rivalry- The British and French tried to gain power in America. They both recruited Indians to fight for them. The war that settled this dispute was the French and Indian War, known in Europe as the Seven Years War. The Treaty of Paris in 1763 confirmed the British victories not only in America but in many other parts of the world too. British power and worldwide prestige had reached a new height. Increased Control over the Colonies- The British built up a large debt while waging war against the French on three continents. Because the British had helped the colonists, they felt justified in asking the colonists to repay this debt. Sugar Act of 1764- imposed new taxes on sugar and many other items imported into North America Stamp Act- This required that the colonists pay a tax (in the form of special stamps) on wills, mortgages, contract, newspapers, pamphlets, calendars, playing cards, and almanacs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
