American Revolution Storyboard
This storyboard does not have a description.
A colony is a country or area that is taken over by another country. The colonies were located on the Northeast and the Southeast of the United States.
The British government wanted to tax the colonists because they wanted them to know that they are still in charge. They responded by not paying the taxes.
The phrase "no taxation without representation" basically meant that they weren't gonna pay the tax.
The Boston Massacre was a street fight between British soldiers and a "patriot" mob that turned out to be violent. It happened because there was a fatal incident that happened at Boston. But the Boston Tea Party was different than this. It was when a group of colonists went onto the ships and threw the tea overboard. It happened because the colonists were against the Tea Act.
War eventually happens between the colonists and England because the British attempted to limit the western expansions for the colonists.
