Oh crap! We can't defend all of that land West of the Appalachian mountains we need to make a law that doesn't allow the British to settle past the Appalachian.
Well we are going to get all of the colonist together sign a patitcion and riot.
The Stamp Act of 1764
We shall tax the colonist so we can make up for the war. We don't care what the colonist think we only care about what we think.
We shall not be charged because we heard somebody yell FIRE!
The Boston Massacre
You shall be charged because you killed two innocent people.
Well guess what they aren't going to.
The British siezed all of this land West of the Appalachian Mountains. Then they realized that they didn't ave enough soldiers to cover that land so they made a law so that nobody could go West of the Appalachian.
The Tea act/ Boston Tea party
These ship must leave
The british needed money from losing the war so they taked all of the stamp products that go to the Colonist. The Colonist didn't want to get taxed for making the money up for a war that another country lost so they rioted until the Stamp act was done.
The Intolerable Acts
This is outrageus
A dispute between a British colonist and a soldier. The soldier killed the colonist and more soldiers came to him. The colnoist got mad and started throwing things at the soldiers. The soldiers heard the word fire and they fired killing 3 people instantly and 2 people over time. The Colonist claim that the leader said fire but he claims that a Brititsh Col said fire.
The First Continental Congress
We must get together
We defiantly should
The British kept the tax on the tea after the Town shed acts was repealed. The colonist are trying to get tea directly imported to them without it getting taxed. A law passed called the Tea Act which allowed the British East India company to sell tea directly to the colonist. Three ships with tea on them were told to leave they didn't and 340 chest of tea was thrown into the harbor.
When the British prime minster was very upset when he heard about the Boston tea party. He closed the Boston Harbor until Boston could pay for all of the tea they lost.
The first continetal congress was the meeting from most of the colnies to talk in a good way about waht was going on and what was happening.
