Fire if you dare!!!
After the Townshend Acts were passed (taxes on everyday good) the Daughters of Liberty was founded. They boycotted the products and started to make their own goods. Originally they were formed after the Stamp Act.
The Declaratory Act of 1766 gave Parliament the ability to create any law it wanted at any given time to control the colonies. This also meant that parliament had all the power.
The Boston Massacre took place in 1770 between a group of angry colonists and an outnumbered group of redcoats. The colonists threatened the redcoats and eventually a bullet was shot.
