Storyboard Text

  • The Intolerable Acts (1774)
  • Now, these acts should do the trick! Now the colonies should be under FULL control!
  • First Continental Congress
  • We've (excluding Georgia) had enough! Let's get ready to fight the British!
  • Battle at Concord & Lexington
  • The colonists are too strong! We're going to lose this battle!
  • King George III was furious at the destruction of British Goods. He decided to tighten control over Massachusetts with the Intolerable Acts. First, the port of Boston was closed down until the colonists paid for the destroyed tea. Second, royal governors could now ban town meetings. Third, British officials were to stand trial in Britain, not Massachusetts. Lastly, Quartering Act allowed British troops to be housed in colonial houses.
  • King George III
  • The colonists reacted to the Intolerable Acts by holding the First Continental Congress, where twelve colonies (excluding Georgia) had a meeting for a resistance against the British. Together, they supported the protests in Massachusetts, stepped up military preparations, and secretly started stashing weapons for possible war.
  • The British noticed that the colonists were secretly stashing weapons. So, they decided to march troops to Concord where they believed the illegal weapons were stashed. However, it wasn't stashed at Concord, and a battle with the colonists began when the Minutemen fired at the British. The Minutemen won the battle, even though the British outnumbered them.
