The British Empire had a major control over the colonies in North America
for a long time, and it didn’t help that the colonies depended on Britain for
everything. The colonies didn’t have the resources nor supplies to feed, cloth, and
protect themselves, so they had help from Britain. Britain did things like send
them foods and tools for crops, they also sent stationed soldiers to protect them.
The biggest way Britain had control over the colonies though, was the
When the colonists set out on there own to find the new land they never
knew of the hard times they'd endure. They went through starving times, horrible
winters where nearly everyone died, and times where they just didn't have the
necessary medicine or help they needed. Eventually they had the British Empire
step in and help them. Britain sent them tea, sugar, various foods, medicine, and
supplies. Because the colonies depended so heavily on Britain, they ultimately had
dominance over the colonies. After Britain's help, the colonies began to thrive, and
Britain demanded they pay taxes, which lead to the Boston Tea Party, but also a
way of paying their dues back to Britain. Britain had great control over the
colonies at this time.
The colonists in North America also weren't very well liked by the Native
American people, due to taking their land, forcing them out, and slaughtering
entire villages. When the colonists built their settlement in North America they had no idea anyone else was there, but even when they did they pushed through the
Indians and stole their land right from under them. Since there weren't yet a lot of
colonists and they weren't very well established yet, they needed help and
protection from the outraged Indians. So, they again went to the motherland for
help, and again Britain came to the rescue.
