There were many ways that colonists protested British taxes.


For example, during the Stamp Act, some colonists protested the Stamp Act by sending messages to Parliament. Loyalists refused to buy stamps, and Patriots attacked tax collectors' homes. Protestors from Connecticut even began to bury a tax collector alive.

During the Townshend Acts, which placed a tax on certain goods that the colonies received from Britain, the colonists protested by boycotting British goods.

During the Tea Act, the colonists protested by the Boston Tea Party, where 50 men dressed as Mohawk Indians threw all the tea into the sea.
