Now look what happened Peter, I told you the tea wouldn't help! We need to all relax!
It doesn't matter! We need our own rights, if the British think they can put intolerable acts into place then we can fight back! So many of us, including me, lost our job because the harbor closed!
The First Continental Congress
The King denied our kind words, it's time for action. We will have George be our leader.
Because Washington is a good leader who knows tactics. He is perfect!
I still don't think this is a good idea, but if we're going to do it anyway, why Washington? We could use anyone in this Continental Congress!
Battle of Lexington and Concord
Yes! We finally won! We won the Battle of Lexington and Concord
The King and Lord North were both extremely surprised by the tea party, they decided they would take full control over the colonists. No town meeting without permission, British soilders accused for murder would be tried in England and not the colonies, and the Boston Harbor would shut down. That cause many colonists to run out of money because their businesses closed down.
12 men from around the colonies gathered and decided to send a respectful letter to the king of Great Britain. They also boycotted British goods. Unfortunately the King did nothing, and the men decided to fight. They elected Geroge Washington as their leader in war.
A spy told the British general that the colonists had a supply of guns and gunpowder. The British attacked at once. Though the colonists new they were coming, they weren't trained enough and they didn't have enough men to win. They lost with many dead. The second hit was a success! They fought bravely against the British and won! The colonists won the final battle and for now, they were at some sort of peace.
