What are you doing

I am going to be living in your house for a few days so go make me dinner. NOW!
The Stamp act
Yes you do!
We all don't have to pay taxes for you guys. That is not fair.

The Boston Massacre
Soldiers could easily go into colonists home and stay there for as long as they want. The Colonists would have to make meals for them, wash their clothes, and make room for them to sleep somewhere
The Boston tea party
Hurry the British soldiers are coming
The British Leaders thought that the Colonists should help pay for the troops who were protecting them. The stamp act said that the colonists would have to pay their taxes on printed paper. Colonists from different colonies also joined together to protest the stamp act.
The Intolerable Acts
Everybody needs to follow these new laws
Colonists were still mad that the British Soldiers were living in their towns. Later the relationship between the soldiers and the colonists became worse. On March 5, 1770 their was a protest between the colonists and the soldiers. A soldier miss heard and started firing, killing 8 colonists.
Your so rude
Colonists didn't like the fact that the law tried to force them to buy tea from one company. After, Colonists dumped 90,000 pounds of loose tea into the water. Many Colonists spoke out against the law and refused to buy tea.
After the Boston Tea Party, they decided to punish the colonists by passing several new laws. In September 1774, leaders from all colonies gathered in Philadelphia to discuss the problems with Britain. People throughout the colonies promised to help Boston by sending money, food, and supplies.
