Chunk One: Long Term Causes of the American Revolution Salutary Neglect- Because, England was so far away from America, England left the colonists alone to make their own decisions Mercantilism- the colonies only existed to provide wealth for the mother country (Great Britain). As long as the colonies sold more than they bought and provided income to Great Britain, the colonists were left alone. Triangular Trade - the triangular trade route was a trading pattern connecting Europe, Africa, and the 13 colonies Middle Passage- the leg of the triangular trade route that brought slaves from Africa to the 13 colonies Navigation acts - A series of laws stating that the colonists were only allowed to trade with England. The colonist had already created other trading partners with the french and the dutch. These were the first laws to limit the colonial trade with other countries. These were not heavily enforced until after the French and Indian war. French and Indian war- The British fought the French and Indians for control of the Ohio River Valley. The British won the war and go into debt. This caused England to begin to enforce the navigation acts as well as end the policy of salutary neglect.

    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.
