I am Sam Adams and I am upset with this law being passed. I am upset because they forced us to pay taxes on special stamps for paper goods such as contracts playing cards etc. So we started a protest '' We should not be taxed without representation.
Boston Tea Party
With this new act we are getting really angered. The government is passing a new law called the Quartering Act. now we have to house soldiers and provide them with candles, beds and salt and cider etc. The government is forcing us to let them stay in our homes for free and we are not happy with it.
Now we could not be more mad. The British soldiers went open fire on us. We were standing there protesting about all of the terrible laws and the soldiers fired. Five colonists were shot and killed even though british soldiers were told not to fire.
We are infuriated about all these laws and it was time for there punishment. We overtook a British ship carrying tea and dumped 342 chests of tea in the boston harbor to protest
