The British were trying to sneak up on the colonists in the middle of the night, but with the help of Paul Revere warning them in the middle of the night, the colonists outsmarted the British and defeated them
THE BRITISH ARE COMING!! THE BRITISH ARE COMING!!
Hello! I'm Paul Revere!!
Road to American revolution
Paul Revere was a blacksmith and ardent colonist.
The colonists got very angry because of new takes imposed by Britain. The Sons of liberty disguised them selves as Indians and overtook a British ship carrying tea and dumped 342 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor to protest.
Boston Tea Party 1773
Intolerable Acts 1774
The first law that King George III passed was closing the Boston Harbor for trade. Colonists were angered by this because then if they needed to get a certain fabric from a different colony it would take way longer
After me and the other men of The Sons of Liberty dumped all of the tea into the harbor, the King was angry and he passed the Intolerable Acts.
How can the King let us start a new world over here but not let us Govern ourselves!! It doesn't make sense!!
The second law that the King passed was that he took away self governing.
Britin forced colonists to buy a stamp for every piece of paper they buy. The money from the stamps helped pay for England's French & Indian War which had caused huge debts over the course of 7 years.
Just because the British Soldiers helped protect us doesn't mean we have to buy a stamp for every piece of paper we use.
