Townsend Act By Jackson martin

The Townshend act was enacted in 1767 and it was to help recover for the recent war between Britain and France.

Basically, the Townshend act replaced the "Stamp Act", but the taxes were on everyday items, and taxes were now more enforced and it was to keep the British from smuggling as well.

The colonists were far from pleased, they were outraged. They decided to find alternatives to the taxed items, making their own clothes and just plain boycotting in in a few ways.
