  • The Townshend Act and Reaction- The British Parliament passed a series of measures that taxed goods that were imported to the Americas. The American colonists reacted very poorly because they got no representation in parliament, and they saw this as an abuse of power.
  • The Boston Massacre- British soldiers shot five colonists and killed two. This tragic event in history leads to the Revolutionary war.
  • The Boston Tea Party- American colonists threw 342 chests of tea into the harbor of Boston. This was caused by the British imposing the "No Taxation Without Representation". The British then shut down the Boston harbor and passed the intolerable acts.
