  • Introduction
  •                      This is the four historical events that lead to the  Revolutionary War
  • The Stamp Act 1765
  • This made the colonists upset, they felt that their freedom had been intimidated because they had no say in the laws being enforced.
  • We won't pay!
  • The Townshend Acts 1767
  • This made the colonists upset because they saw it as another unjust form of taxation without representation.  As a result colonists organized a boycott of British goods.
  • We don't want taxes
  • Include us!
  • Colonists matter!
  • We won't buy your British goods!
  • We have an opinion!
  • This upset the colonists because they were so fessed up with everything that the British was doing, and then they killed 5 colonists and got away with it. 
  • The Boston Massacre 1770
  • The Stamp Act was a law made to help the British pay their debt the law was that all colonists had to buy a stamp to put on most printed materials such as newspapers, pamphlets, marriage licenses, and playing cards.
  • The Boston Tea Party 1773
  • This upset the colonists very much because they considered it another decision that England made without them consulting the colonists.
  • The new British Prime Minister applied a tiny tax on glass, lead, paper, and tea. However the tax was not included in the price that the colonists paid at the store and not added on the price, therefor Townshend hoped that the colonists wouldn't find out.
  • Conclusion
  • Colonialist began to harass British troops by throwing snowballs and taunting them, eventually the situation got out of hand and the British troops opened fire allowing 5 colonists to die. Boston citizens called a town meeting to remove the British troops for murder but the British troops won the argument that it was self-defense.
  • Parliament passed this act which only allowed colonists to be able to buy tea from one company. This company was the British East Indies Company, there was absolutely no company that could compete with this one.
  • Those were the four historical events that lead to the Revolutionary War
