        A tense relationship between the King and the colonists had been established long before the
        American Revolution. For example, colonists were frustrated by the passage of the
        1.___________________, in which they were required to only use British ships for transport and
        only conduct trade with England. This measure of control ended 2.__________________, which
        was the colonists’ ability to control and regulate their lives with little interference from the king. In
        1754, fighting broke out in colonial North America. The 3._________________War began as
        settlers desired to lay claim over the hotly contested and sought after Ohio River Valley. When the
        war ended, the Treaty of Paris, 1763 was signed and soon after, the king created the
        4._____________________, in which he designated the land west of the Appalachians for Natives
        and the land east of the Appalachian for colonists. Colonists felt that they had been deprived of their
        land, and were further angered when the 5.___________________ was passed and all printed, paper
        products were heavily taxed to pay for the war debt. Soon after, colonists were again taxed heavily as
        result of the 6.__________________, but now the tax was indirect and was placed on paper, tea,
        lead and glass. In addition to paying the taxes, colonists were also expected to house and feed
        soldiers in the colonies as described in the 7._____________________.

        The growing tensions between colonists and British soldiers further escalated in the
        8.___________________ when soldiers fired into a crowd of colonists who had been taunting them.
        One action colonists took to show their dissatisfaction with the King and his policies, such as the
        Tea Act, the Sons of Liberty organized and executed the 9.___________________. The King found
        the colonists actions inexcusable and issued the 10._____________________ as punishment, which
        included closing down the Boston Harbor and issuing military rule. The Kings attempt to control the
        colonists failed, and soon after, representatives from all of the colonies met at the Second
        Continental Congress on July 4, 1776 to adopt the 11._______________________.
