Which of the following is correct regarding the American colonies in the 1770s before the revolutionary war!?
(A) except for a few radicals, americans generally accepted the policies of George III's ministers!.
(B) most americans resisted the british gov's efforts to impose new taxes!.
The answer is A but I thought that the colonists strongly resisted efforts to impose new taxes(for example the boston tea party in 1773 & resistance against intolerable acts)!? Can someone please explain!?Www@QuestionHome@Com
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
The majority of people did not resist the British govt at that time!.
Even during the Rev War, John Adams said that only 1/3 of people were for the Revolution, 1/3 were against it, and 1/3 didn't care!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
