Storyboard Text

  • French and Indian War (1754-1763): War between the English and the French over the land in Ohio River Valley. Even though colonists fought for England, the English won the war. However, the war left them in debt and in need of money, so they looked at the colonies for the source of money leading to Parliment which angered colonists.  
  • I have an idea! Lets tax the colonies! That way we can get out of our debt!
  • King George! What whatever shall we do?! We are in great debt sir, how will we get money!?
  • Proclamation of 1763 (October): England had banned colonists from ever settling west of the Appalachian mountains. English officials were earned search warrants allowing them to search people's property. James Otis(a colonist) argued that this violated the individual rights of the colonists.
  • James, I think otherwise since they have a warrant so they are legally able to search your house  no matter what form of rights and such foolishness!
  • King George , the warrant you primmted to the officials violates the individual rights of the colonists, it is simply unfair!
  • sugar
  • In 1764, Parliament had taxed sugar whether it was imported, or brought to the colonies to  pay for war debt and help pay for the expenses of running the colonies, increasing duties on imported sugar and other items too. In response to this, Boston businesses started boycotting some English goods. Fall of 1764, Parliament had ordered colonies to stop printing their own money, which they opposed since they were  afraid it would upset the economy.
  • sugar
  • Now all I have to do is unpack this bowat full of sugar to the colonies.
