Everything that has happened, and all the taxes that were placed
I hate that we have to get tea from the EIC, it's not fair
Boston Tea Party
The tea act created a monopoly for the British because they owned the EIC and they could only buy tea from them.
First Continental Congress
Colonists dressed up as indians and threw tea overboard on a ship because they were mad about the taxes that were being placed on them by the British.
Lexington and Concord
Closed Boston Harbor and demanding that the people pay money for the tea that was dumped into the water.
Second Continental Congress
In reaction to the coercive acts, they got in a room and discussed a series of measures imposed by the British Government on the Colonists because of their resistance against the taxes that were placed on them.
A war that went on, with people at a militia that weren't soldiers, they were farmers, they were also called minutemen. Why, well they were able to be ready for a fight in 1 minute. A famous saying when there was a farmer coming back to the militia said "The British are coming, the British are coming!!"
Failed to appoint grievances out to the colonists so they had to organize the first continental congress and organize the continental army to fight.
