Storyboard Text

  • Did you hear the taxes on molasses lowered?
  • Molasses for sale!
  • Why did the parliament lower taxes on molasses?
  • To stop colonists from smuggling.
  • Give that back! 
  • The 1764 parliament repealed taxes on molasses and other goods.
  • You have been accused of smuggling!
  • By the Writs of Assistance, we are permitted to search your home without a search warrant!
  • Colonists participated in a boycott where they refused to buy goods from the British. The British stopped making revenue, so they canceled taxes on all goods.
  • Prior to the parliament, colonists had difficulties buying items because the taxes were so high. As a result, colonists often stole goods, specifically molasses. 
  • The Writs of Assistance was created so officers could search any accused smugglers houses. Accused smugglers would not get a trial, so this was unfair towards anyone who did not smuggle. This angered colonists because it limited their freedom and rights.
