We are placing a tax on your sugar so we can make more money.
WHAT NO! WE ARE TOO POOR
The proclamation of 1763 prevented the colonists from settling past the Appalachian mountains. This was because the British didn't want the colonist to have more land than them.
BOSTON TEA PARTY
This is what you get for taxing are tea!
The British had to place a tax on the colonist's sugar products because they wanted to make more money for the products. This caused the colonists to be very mad about this act, but they were very sneaky so they smuggled it in secret.
This is so humiliating!
It was a late night when a small group of colonists were wandering around and started harassing a guard. Later on, other British soldiers began to notice and started fighting back, One of the soldiers yelled fire, and that's where it all started. It was bloody and terrifying. The first person to get shot was a black man named Crispus Attucks, by the end of it, five men were left shot and dead on the floor.
FIRST CONTINENTAL CONGRESS
A late night after everyone fell asleep, the American colonists dressed up as Native Americans, angry because their tea was being taxed. They dumped out over $1,000,000 of tea into the Boston harbor because of this frustration.
As a result of the Boston tea party, the British parliament was very angry and upset. The British parliament decided to create laws, so that the colonist could be punished for their wrongdoing. They decided to punish the city of Boston by, hanging people, pouring hot tea into their mouths, and feathering.
Please stop, it burns!
The first continental congress was the meeting to talk about the reaction to the after the Boston Tea Party. The British government's stop the trade and representative government.
