The Boston Massacre
Many Colonial Settlers were leaving England to live along the Atlantic coast. But Indian leader Chief Pontiac opposed the settlement in the new land. British feared more fighting would take place if the colonists kept moving so King George the 3rd established a rule banning settlement anywhere west of the Appalatian Mountians.
The Tea Act/Boston Tea Act
In 1764 Parliament approved The Sugar Act. THe Sugar Act put taxes on molasses and sugar imported by colonists. The Sugar Act was the first act to be specifically used to raise money.
The Intolerable Acts
On March 5th 1770, Someone (supposedly a colonist in the crowd) shouted "fire." and the British Solders shot their guns at angry mob of men who had lost their jobs. The men were told not to fire but they shot a man, and the massacre began. When the smoke cleared up, The Solders had shot four more men.
