From here forward, no one can settle west of the Appalachia.
The Sugar Act
Taxing the sugar will punish them for smuggling.
The Boston Massacre
After winning the seven years war, Britain had gained a lot more land in North America. After this, they released the Proclamation of 1763 which made it so that the colonists weren't allowed to settle west of the Appalachian mountains.
The Boston Tea Party
Passed by British Parliament in 1764, the sugar act was a law made in an attempt to put an end to smuggling goods like sugar and molasses. This act made it so that there was a tax on sugar and molasses, and they better enforced no smuggling for these products.
The Intolerable Acts
I guess so?
Just imagine what we could do to the colonists' for throwing all the tea into the harbor!
The Boston massacre of 1774, was the result of a riot of some colonists that were throwing things like rocks and sticks at a lone soldier, that quickly escalated when somebody yelled fire, and British soldiers started shooting the colonists and ended with many injured and some dead.
The First Continental Congress
What are we going to do about Britain and these acts?
The Boston Tea Party in 1773 was an act of political rebellion from the Sons of Liberty because of Britain's "taxation without representation". They rebelled by dumping an entire ship load of tea into the Boston harbor.
Don't stop until its all gone!
In 1774, the Intolerable acts were passed by Parliament to punish the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. As punishment these acts put a tax on colonial goods.
The first Continental Congress was a meeting in 1774, with representation from twelve of thirteen colonies, early on in the American revolution, to discuss the intolerable acts after the Boston Tea Party.
