  • Um, ok...
  • March 5th, 1770 (Boston Massacre)

  • December 16th, 1773
  • How could they tax us? We have no say in the government! We should get them back!
  • The Colonists were NOT happy and the tension in Boston grew.
  • December 16th, 1773 (Boston Tea Party)

  • December 16th, 1773 (Boston Tea Party)
  • On December 16th, a group of patriots known as the Sons of Liberty set their sight on the last remaining tax, tea.
