  • The Boston Massacre happened because colonists were threatening them and daring them to shoot them. They were also supposedly throwing snowballs at the soldiers and then started to panic after they started shooting into the crowd.
  • The Boston Tea Party happened as a protest against the Tea Tax that the British made. They threw all of the tea that was on the boat into the ocean.
  • The Coercive/Intolerable Acts happened as a punishment to the people in Boston after they did the Boston Tea Party. They got rid of their government meaning if a British soldier was charged with a crime, they would be in court with other British people which almost always means that they will not be guilty. They also stopped them from shipping goods, and they shut down all of their courts.
  • We will get revenge!
  • They will regret destroying our Tea!!
