sep 4, 1739 - 12. Salutary Neglect

During this time period the British mainly left the colonies to themselves. This policy was broken shortly after the Seven Year War. After this policy was broken British settlers were deeply angered by British’s attempt to control them. The Americas were running and being very successful so the British left them to their own devices.
