Storyboard Text

  • The Sugar Act 1764 When the colonists started refusing to pay the taxes from the French and Indian war, they put a tax on sugar. But the colonists rebelled by smuggling it, so then George Grenville who was in charge of taxing the colonists lowered the tax, hoping that the smuggling would stop, and colonists would start to buy the sugar
  • The Townshend Acts 1767-1770 The British government had put tax on many items such as glass, paper, lead, paint, and tea. And the colonists had to pay either in gold or in silver. They also started to stop smuggling, so this gave British Redcoat Soldiers the right to search any house, or vessel. The colonists disagreed with this and so they said that they had to have at least some search warrants. Sam Adams was the leader of The Sons pf Liberty, where they boycotted English goods. He said that the British had violated the rights of the colonists, and the boycotting started to spread throughout the colonies. They also organized protests, secret socities, ways to send letters without the British noticing, and harrasing the British activities. The Daughters of Liberty had made clothes on spinning wheels so that the colonists didn't have to buy British goods.
  • The Stamp Act 1765 Any legal document had to be imported from London so they could tax the colonists to help pay the debt. This made the colonists disagreed with this because they had no say in the matter, and the Parliment had made the decision on their own. To make sure that the colonists didn't use their own paper, Britain put stamps on any paper that was printed. The stamps had different designs making it harder to forge them. This act went on for quite some time.
  • The Quartering Act 1765 It was a way for the British government to save money. The colonists had to share homes with the British redcoats, and did not have any say in the matter. When New York colonies refused to share their homes, the British government shut down their Legislator, but they boycotted until they changed the act.
