Storyboard Text

  • The Stamp Act Congress-1765
  • No taxation without representation!
  • We must take action against the British! We should write a petition to the king.
  • Boston Massacre-1770
  • I do NOT like those Red Coats!
  • Hey!
  • Boston Tea Party-1773
  • I don't trust the price for tea will stay low and The Tea Act is another tax we have to pay!
  • Well, we need to protest. So let's hop on that ship and throw tea overboard!
  • We should write another petition.
  • The Stamp Act Congress happened in New York City and was the first time 9 colonies worked together for America's freedom. First, they wrote a petition to the king saying that the taxes weren't fair because they had no representation in parliament (no taxation without representation) and then, they wouldn't buy any British goods until they repealed The Stamp Act.
  • 1st Continental Congress-1774
  • And if things don't get better we'll reconvene.
  • We need to tell them to repeal the Intolerable Act and open Boston Harbor.
  • The Colonists were agitated with the British because there were still many taxes and more soldiers, then some Colonists said mean things about them and the British overheard them. Next, shots were fired at the Colonists, and 4 men died, but Paul Revere's famous engraving led people to believe it was more of a 'massacre.' Freedom to the Colonists meant no more heavy taxes and no more incidents like these.
  • 2nd Continental Congress-May 1775
  • The vote is in favor of an Olive Branch, but we will also prepare for war.
  • We want to break ties with the British!
  • The Tea Act was a tax that reduced the price of tea but the Colonists could only buy it from British East India (a monopoly was happening). The Colonists didn't believe the price of tea would stay low, so a protest was led by the Sons of Liberty on a British ship; they threw tea off the ship, making a point to hurt the tea, not the ship. This shows that the Colonists will make their own decisions whether they agree with the British or not.
  • Battle of Bunker Hill-June 1775
  • Retreat!
  • In Philadelphia, all colonies showed up, except Georgia to discuss about what to do about The Intolerable Acts. They decide to send another petition to parliament to take back The Intolerable Acts and open Boston Harbor. Another, Continental Congress is another chance to work together and become a better team.
  • Once again, all colonies met in Philadelphia, with very determined loyalists who wanted to send an Olive Branch Petition to the king because they didn't think they could over throw the British and patriots who were ready to break British ties and fight. The compromise was to send an Olive Branch to the king, and start preparing to fight for their freedom under the command of George Washington.
  • We want an Olive Branch Petition!
  • The Battle of Bunker Hill was a moral victory for the Colonists because they would have won but they ran out of ammunition. Also, the British had more people and would have retreated but the general kept sending them up and had 226 die, and 828 get wounded. The Colonists moral victory also meant they were ready to fight for America.
  • We're out of ammunition!
