  • FIRE!
  • the british were broke after the indian and french war,  so they started putting taxes on all their goods, the colonist saw this as a threat because they felt as if they already helped enough and lost a lot by helping. and they had no representation during the parliament planning this 
  • some of the goods that were taxed was tea. a ship came by to drop off tea but colonist told the ship to leave but the Governor wouldn't let the ship leave until it was unloaded and the tax was paid off for it. so colonist dressed up as natives and dumped 342 chest of tea into the boston harbor.
  • (this one was supposed to be the second one but i accidentally messed up, sorry) the Boston massacre was a violent argument that involved the British troops and the colonist, the colonist were causing a scene, then the troops got involved. then the troops were soon shooting at the colonist.
