Storyboard Text

  • The French and Indian War was very expensive for the British. King George the 3rd went into debt funding the War. Since the War was mainly fought in the colonies King George thought that the colonists should pay back the debt.
  • The patriots ordered the tea to be sent back but Governor Thomas Hutchinsin refused the order. The Sons of Liberty thought that they had no other choice but to destroy the tea, and that's what they did. When they destroyed the tea this became known as The Boston Tea Party.
  • So in 1764 The British Parliament passed The Suger Act. The Suger Act became a law. The Suger Act taxed suger and molasses.
  • This is one of the many things that led up to the Revolutionary War.
  • Colonists had to buy tea from the British Parliament. They also had to pay taxes for that tea. The colonists got very mad and started boycotting and refusing to buy British tea.
  • In late November early December of 1773, 3 ships arrived in Boston Harbor. The taxed tea was supposed to be paid for as soon as it came off the ships. The colonists did not want to pay the tax for the tea so they refused to have it unloaded. Samuel Adams called a meeting and the patriots at that meeting desiderata order the tea to go back to England.
  • Many other things happened that led up to the Revolutionary War.
