  • Quartering Act
  • I'm hungry.
  • Stamp Act
  • They even tax playing cards!
  • Townshend Act
  • No taxation without representation!
  • Now they tax our everyday goods!
  • The Quartering Act, passed in 1765, required the colonists to house and feed British soldiers. This helped the British save money, but was very costly to the colonists. The Quartering Act angered the colonists and contributed to the American Revolution.
  • Writs of Assistance
  • The Stamp Act, passed in 1765, not only taxed paper and legal documents, but required colonists to get a stamp for approval. This was another way for the British to get money from the colonies. The Stamp Act also angered the colonist, contributing to the American Revolution.
  • Tea Act
  • I will not unload the tea!
  • The Townshend Act, passed in 1767, taxed paper, glass, tea, lead, paint, and other everyday goods, which affected more colonists. More colonists became upset and argued that there should be no taxation without representation, which contributed to the American Revolution.
  • Intolerable Acts
  • The Writs of Assistance, issued in 1767, allowed British officers to search any location for smuggled goods and were like search warrants. This contributed to the American Revolution because it made the colonists angry as it allowed the British to search anywhere they wanted and could ransack the place.
  • Writ ofAssistance
  • The Tea Act, passed in 1773, made the British East India Company the only one that could sell tea to the colonies. This contributed to the American Revolution because it angered many colonists, as it lowered the cost of tea and put many out of business. As protest, many colonists refused to unload tea from ships or sell the tea.
  • The Intolerable Acts, passed in 1774, quartered more troops in Boston and closed the Boston Port until the tea from the Boston Tea Party was paid for. This contributed to the American Revolution because it angered the colonists by forcing them to pay for soldiers to stay in their homes and having soldiers tried in England.
