  • The colonists were sick of the British taxing them. They wanted to have the freedom for their own officials to be able to impose taxes, not Britain. This caused people to begin to stand up to King George III, slowly sparking a rebellion.
  • So cold... So hungry... 
  • Bubble Tea
  • We must continue to fight for Murica!
  • However, as soon as the colonists tried to fight back, they were shot down. Literally, they were shot down. The British shot Bostonians that would not cease their protesting, thus ending in what the Americans called the Boston Massacre. 
  • We surrender! 
  • Murica!
  • The Sons of Liberty, a rebel organization, was sick of the British's constant taxes on everything, including tea, and planned to dump all tea imported by British companies overboard the ships.
  • *clink*
  • The Continental Army was close to falling apart and losing hope that winter in Valley Forge. Supplies ran low, and many soldiers fell to famine and smallpox. However, General George Washington continued to persevere and kept the Army together with his determination and leadership.
