The Proclamation of 1763
The Sugar Act

The Sugar Act was a law passed by Britain, stating that an extra tax must be paid on all molasses and no smuggling was alowed.

The Boston Tea Party was a political and mercantile protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, Massachusetts, on December 16, 1773. They destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by the East India Company. They boarded the ships and threw the chests of tea into Boston Harbor.
The Boston Massacre happened when the colonists got fed up with all the laws. They threw rocks and snowballs at the soldiers. Unfortunately, the soldiers had guns and they killed 5 men and wounded 6. Two of the soldiers were punished by having their thumbs branded.
