These would be some of examples that the stamp act taxed
These would be some of the examples of British goods they taxed
There were many sons of liberty but only a handful that boycotted
One of the first events leading up to the American revolution was the stamp act. In 1765 the British taxed the colonists paper products including legal documents, newspapers ,playing cards ect. . The committees of correspondence were formed to help share information about new taxes and things Britain did to anger the colonies. This led to the revolutionary war because it was one of the many disagreements Britain had with the colonies about taxes.
The British are coming!
From 1767-1770 the townshend acts taxed British goods like lumber, fish and glass . The colonists reacted by boycotting British products which affected trade within the colonies. This was one of the many disagreements between Britain and the colonies that started the revolutionary war.
This is infuriating!
In 1773 at night, the sons of liberty dressed up as native americans and went on the most recent shipment of British tea. They threw the shipments of British tea over the edge of the ship as a way to boycott the tea
