No patriot shall pass the border of mountains here! King George has stated it himself!
You mean to tell me the war I fought will give me no land? Simply preposterous
The Stamp Act
This article of news costed much more than I thought. The normals have nothing but cruelty sometimes.
Fire! Fire! Fire!
In 1763, a proclamation was issued by King George III. This forbid any of the British settlers from moving and settling anywhere west of the Appalachian Mountains. It was issued because Natives were fighting and attacking forts. The settlers were mad either way as they had fought the war and got basically nothing.
The Tea Act/Boston Tea Party
The stamp act happened in 1765 when a law from Britain was passed that placed a tax on almost every paper product colonists passed. This included newspapers, legal documents, and much more.
The Intolerable acts
Excuse me? We don't have room! You really can just walk in here?
Thank you for the housing ma'am.
On March 5, 1770, a disagreement between the colonists and the British blew up. Colonists were tired of the taxes being placed on them by the British. In front of a house where taxes were placed, many colonists were marked outside a sentry's post where they threw snowballs as well as other objects. They also clubbed soldiers and shouted to fire. Eventually a soldier fired and many people were injured (including the soldiers) and some colonists died.
The First Continental Congress
With such a high taxation on tea, many colonial merchants smuggled tea into the colonies. The British East India Company provided an idea where they would sell tea directly to the colonies. Once this passed, a ships came to the Boston Harbor holding British tea. Colonists who didn't want to be taxed dressed up as Indians and dumped about 4 million dollars worth of into the ocean.
This'll show the normals.
As a result of the Boston Tea party, Britain put into effect the intolerable acts. This was full of many different laws but the really important laws were that 1. The Boston Harbor was closed down. 2. The quartering act forced colonists to house British soldiers. Tentions got even worse between America and Britain.
The First Continental Congress was a meeting with 12 of the 13 colonies who sent delegates. They met in Philadelphia and discussed many things involving England and revolution.
