Best Answer

George Washington did not support Britain's taxation of the colonists. British imposed new taxes such as the Townshend Act, Sugar Act, Stamp Act, etc. to generate money to support it's economy which was weakened by the French and Indian War. Washington also believed in the right of independence. He was appointed the general of the continental army in the war against independence (Revolutionary War).
