  • The Boston massacre
  • Britten forces colonists to give 'quarters' (living space) to soldiers by providing them with shelter, food, and water. The colonists were furious and upset, they were also taking the colonists jobs. Many colonists treated the soldiers horribly.
  • Boston Tea Party
  • Britten forces the Colonies to pay taxes for delivery, so they stopped buying the newspaper. They also would not buy these stamps. They did not want to be taxed for things they use everyday.
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • Colonists swarmed soldiers and called them names and harassed them. Reinforcement soldiers came, the captain said, "Don't fire", but one of the soldiers thought they heard the command, "Fire". The soldiers shot into the crowd, killing 5 people, wounding 6 others.  
  • Colonists dressed as Indians broke into a ship, not destroying anything except for the loose tea, they even bought the owner a new padlock after they accidentally destroyed the old one. Hey did this for 2 reasons, because they could only by tea from 1 vendor, and it was taxed. They were very angry and this is how they protested.
  • This is a representation of colonists forcing tea down the throat of a tarred and feathered tax collector. This is why the Intolerable Acts came to be. The Intolerable Acts were the laws passed by Parliament without representation.
