This is for my social studies homework and i need two examples of this!
There are many examples of group action by the colonists that gave them leverage against the British. One main example is the colonial boycott of British goods during the Stamp Act crisis. This boycott hurt British merchants who were important politically, as well as economically, in Britain. The British merchants were much more successful than the colonists in petitioning that the Stamp Act be repealed. Another example of group action by the colonies against the British was Congress itself. Congress gave the collective colonies a single voice, which promoted a unity of message and purpose that would lead to the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
