The Boston Tea Party
American colonists bother the British soldiers. One of the British soldiers accidentally fires their gun, and a massacre starts. 5 American colonists were killed.
The Quartering Act
The British government puts a tax on tea (and other items) to save a British company. Colonial merchants could not sell tea in tea trade. The colonists were angry and boycotted by dressing up as Native Americans and threw 18,000 pounds of tea off a boat, into the waters of the Boston Harbor.
The Stamp Act
To punish the American colonists for the Boston Tea Party, King George passed a series of laws on the colonists. One of the most known laws was the Quartering Act.
Lexington and Concord
The Quartering Act was a law passed to punish the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. British soldiers were allowed to live inside of the colonist's house. They had to be fed, and they had to have a place to sleep.
