We worked this whole war and now we can´t settle here?!
we have to rebel they can´t treat us like this anymore
The Sugar Act 1764
we don´t have enough money from the war we have to put taxes on the colonist's sugar.
The Boston Massacre 1770
The Colonists started settling near the Ohio River Valley and there were many Indians there already, so the Indian leaders told them to attack the Colonists. Too many people were dying so the British ordered the Colonists to not settle on the land west of the Appalachian Mountains.
The Boston Tea Party 1773
The British won the war but they had to pay for the war still, so they decided to tax the Colonists for things that the Colonists needed. The British first taxed the Colonists for sugar, they called it the Sugar Act.
Intolerable Acts 1774
This is outrageous we need to stop the colonists!
the colonists poured 342 chests in the ocean.
The British soldiers came over to the colonies and the Colonists started throwing snowballs at them and yelling names at them and starting a riot to hurt them. So either one of the Colonists or the British soldier leader told the soldiers to fire and the soldiers killed 5 Colonists.
The First Continental Congress 1774
When Britain put a tax on tea, the Colonists were more than angry so members of the Sons of Liberty dressed as African American slaves
After the Boston tea party, Britian got very angry and they started to make tons of Acts to tax the colonists and to take away many of the Colonists rights, to punish them.
The Continental Congress is when all of the colonies had a meeting(except Georgia)after the intolerable acts to figure out what they were going to do next. This lead to the American Revolution.
