Boston Tea Party-1773
This is what you get for passing the Tea Act
In May 1764, local leader Samual Adams agreed with James Otis believing that Parliment could not tax the colonists without their permission, so they summed up their ideas into a slogan "No Taxation without Representation," which spread throughout the colonies.
Oh, Come on!
The Boston Harbor will now be closed until Boston pays for the ruined tea!
Suddenly, the soldiers fired into the crowd, instantly killing three men, including sailor Crispus Attucks.
First Continental Congress-1774
Ok everyone lets come up with a way to break away from Great Brittian entirely. Any ideas?
On the night of December 16, 1773, colonists disguised as Indians sneaked onto the three tea-filled ships. After dumping over 340 tea chests into Boston Harbor, the colonists headed home to remove their disguises.
In the spring of 1774, it passed the Coercive Acts. Colonists called these laws the Intolerable Acts.
To many colonists the closing of Boston Harbor was the final insult in a long list of abuses. In response to the mounting crisis, all the colonies except Georgia sent representatives to a meeting in October 1774. This meeting, known as the First Continental Congress, was a gathering of colonial leaders who were deeply troubled about the relationship between Great Britian and its colonies in America.
