Storyboard Text

  • The Colonists against The British 
  •  The British are in debt since they lost the French and Indian war. They wanted to solve their own problems, but it is getting out of hand! We were once on their side, but our feelings have changed because of the acts that Parliament have placed that raise our  taxes! 
  • The Quartering Act
  • Get me my breakfast!!
  • Oops. That was my last soup!!!!!!
  • The Stamp Act
  • I will not pay any taxes to you and your British King!! If you are going to make silly laws like this, then we will not buy and products from YOU. 
  • Nikita Tayal 
  • The Boston Massacre
  • Parliament passed the law in 1765 that British soldiers could just walk into any colonists house and the colonist living there had to feed, house and help them, and they didn't have a choice since it was a law. It made the colonists angry and caused them to treat the soldiers badly.
  • The Boston Tea Party
  •  In 1765 Parliament passed a law that taxed every piece of paper. To prove that whatever it is was taxed, there was a large blue stamp on it. Colonists protested this law. They refused to buy things from the British. They made their own supplies and eventually, they repealed the law.  
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • The colonists and the soldiers were not getting along. They were upset that soldiers were still coming into their homes. They were calling them names and having small fights on the streets. On March 5, 1770, colonists started throwing things and yelling at the colonists. No one knows why it happened, but the soldiers started shooting the colonists. Soon many were dead. 
  • The colonists love their tea, but they would not buy it from the British. Then  Parliament eventually they passed the law that only the British could sell tea. To protest against this and unfair taxes, on December 16, 1773, some colonists dressed up as Native Americans  and boarded a British ship with lots of tea on board. They threw a lot of the tea into the sea. 90,000 pounds of tea was lost an a lot of money.
  • Only harm the tea!
  •   After the Boston Tea Party,  Parliament  passed many new laws to punish those who participated in it. One was the Boston Port Act, Ships were not allowed to leave the harbor until the lost tea was paid for. Many colonists lost their jobs and they were afraid they would starve. In September, 1774, leader from colonies had a meeting to discuss the problems that the British were causing.  They agreed to fight them about the acts
  • I lost my job today. I hope we dont starve.
