The siege of Boston was the culmination of a series of events that widened the gap between the Colonies and the British Empire. The discomfort had existed before, but after the Townshend Acts, the colony was almost entirely against the British Empire. (Allen 3). The British troops that came to the governor’s aid were regarded as invaders, rather than troops that had come to help them in a time of need. Before, when troops came to the city, it was to repel a foreign menace. This time, it was to pacify the colony.
