  • But I just payed them! Is there a money shortage or something?
  • I would like your taxes.
  • The Quartering Act
  • I would like to stay here! You will provide housing and food for me!
  • Arf? Then where will I sleep?
  • Here is some soup. Eat it and you can sleep in our bed. We will be in the dog's bed.
  • The Stamp Act
  • Yes! I want them now or you cannot have the paper!
  • I have to pay a tax on the newspaper?!?!
  • III
  • All of this was started when the Colonists and British fought together in the French and Indian war. After the war, the British had huge debts to pay. THey passed new laws that ordered the colonists to pay more taxes. The colonists were unhappy with this.
  • The Boston Massacre
  • He fired, so we should fire!
  • Hold your fire! Bernie, what did I tell you about firing without permission?
  • At any time of day or night, a British soldier could come into a colonists house and the colonists were forced to provide housing for a soldier. Many colonists treated the soldiers badly.
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • Damage the tea, nothing else!
  • The British passed a law where a stamp had to be put on all papers, and a tax. Colonists were unhappy with this law, and they protested. Eventually, they repealed the law.
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • NO!!!!!! The Boston Harbor has been closed!
  • On night, outside the Customs House and a soldier standing guard, a mob of angry colonists were calling the soldier names, then throwing snow balls and rocks. Next, Captain Thomas Preston and several other guards came to his side. He told the soldiers not to fire, but one soldier thought he was commanded to fire, so he fired, then the rest of the soldiers. Five men were killed.
  • You said fire? Okay, I'll fire!
  • The British repealed all taxes except for the tax on the tea. Then the colonists did not want tea from the British anymore. A group of colonists dressed up as native americans and got aboard a British ship and then threw all of the tea into the bay. They were careful not ot damage anything other than the tea.
  • TEA
  • After the Boston Tea Party, Parliament passed new laws called the Intolerable Acts. One of the laws was the Boston Port Act, which closed Boston Harbor until the lost tea was paid for. Many workers lost their jobs. The colonists punished tax collectors by tarring, feathering them, then forcing hot tea down their throat.
