  • Growing Tensions  Between the Colonists and Britain 
  • We will not pay our taxes to pay off your debt!     
  • The Quartering Act
  • Here is your room you filthy Redcoat.
  • Don't you forget that we don't want you here!
  • I don't want to be here  either!
  •                 The Stamp Act
  • The new Act says the you must pay a tax for anything printed.
  • I will not!
  • Britain was making rules for the colonists and they got very mad and did not like it.  The British would make the rules without giving the colonists a say  in it.  Britian was making acts to pay off the debts of the   French and Indian War.
  •  The Boston Massecre
  • Take that, you filthy Lobster backs!
  • The Quartering Act ordered the colonists to provide   quarters   for the Redcoats. The colonists had to give  the  Redcoats food, shelter, candles ,  and transportation.   Neither   the  Colonists nor the soldiers  were happy about the Act. They really did not like each other and some of the soldiers were treated badly.
  •  The Boston Tea Party
  • Stamp  Act said that  the colonists had to pay  a tax for anything printed. Such as,  newspapers,  pamphlets,  marriage licences, and playing cards. They had to pay for everything that they regularly used.   The stamp Act was repealed because the   Colonists  refused and got so angry.
  •  The Intolerable Acts
  • The Boston Port Act states that the harbor is now closed.
  • But we will starve!
  • The   Boston Massacre    started because  the  Colonists were angry at  Britain and the Redcoats  for giving them all of the taxes. One night some soldiers were standing outside of  the Customs    house  and a crowed  began to gather.  Soon   people were throwing snowballs and rocks at the Redcoats.  One of the   soldiers thought he heard the captain say fire and he did.   Then the rest of the soldiers .  Six people were wounded and five were killed that night.
  • Britain taxed all  the tea that the colonists drank, they also said that they could  only buy tea from the  East India  Tea Company. One night the  Colonists dressed up as  Native Americans  and threw the shipment of tea into  the  Boston Harbor. They did not want to be violent. The Colonists only wanted to destroy the tea. They had to brake a padlock to get to the tea, but later they replaced it.
  • The British made  laws  that were  so harsh the  Colonists would not tolerate and accept them. The Boston Port Act closed the Harbor, so the trade ships could not come or leave.  Some people thought that they would starve because no food was  being brought  in.  This started the  first  Continental Congress.
