King George the III passed the Quartering Act, the Stamp Act, and the Sugar Act. The Quartering Act let British troops stay in the homes of colonists. The colonists had to provide these 3 main things: beer, bread and bootwax. The Stamp Act taxed paper goods. That was repealed however. The Sugar Act, was started to stop the colonists from bringing rum, sugar, and molasses into the colonies. People smuggled it in though.
