The Proclamation of 1763 banned British settlement anywhere that was west of the Appalachian Mountains. Settlers were forced to leave the upper Ohio river valley. The king passed this law in hopes to avoid further conflict with the Indians.
Boston Tea Party ~1773
We need to throw the rest of the crates in the harbor!
The Committees of Correspondence were organizations formed to spread information about British protests throughout the colonies so that everyone would become aware.
The Intolerable Acts ~1774
Let me in! This is an order from the British!
The Boston Massacre was when the British shot many of the Colonists on. Paul Revere wrote about this event in a very biased way by using propaganda towards the Colonists. Some think the event was started unintentionally and that one of the Colonists shouted 'fire' and the British thought that their leader gave the order instead of a Colonist.
First Continental Congress ~1774
Yes! We want our rights back!
The colonists sneak onto the British ships, wearing Indian clothes as a disguise. They throw hundreds of crates of tea into the Boston Harbor. The event then became known as the Boston Tea Party and it cost the British millions of dollars.
Yes! The British will pay!
After the Boston Tea Party, Parliament passed laws to punish Boston. They were called the Intolerable Acts. One of the laws was the Quartering Act. It forced colonists to let British soldiers stay in their homes. This angered the Colonists since they had to feed and house the British.
Hmmph! This is MY house!
The First Continental Congress all got together to organize colonial resistance against the laws passed by parliament. The Intolerable Acts limited the Colonists rights, causing the Colonists to try to get them back.
I believe that all British goods should be boycotted!
