The taxes were one thing, but opening our homes and wallets to strangers is just outrageous!
What is he doing here???
Here's some money
We should create a stamp act congress!!
No taxation without representation!!!
I can't believe they are making us pay taxes to stamp all paper items!!
WE ARE DONE TAKING THIS!!
Enough is enough!
They took away every tax but this one because they know how much we like tea!
I think that the quartering act was a very important event leading up to the Declaration of Independence because it showed how much power the British really had over the Colonists. The colonists were furious, and their fury took them one step closer to rebelling against British Forces.
Boston Tea Party
Let's throw all 342 crates in!!
Let's see if King George III likes this!!
The Stamp Act was very important, because it made the colonists very angry. They were very passionate, and because of that, they took the next step toward revolution by getting organized.
First Continental Congress
We will create our own small armies called militias!
The Tea Act was very important because it was the build up to one of the most famous, if not the most famous, act leading up to The Declaration of Independence. In some ways the Tea Act is almost a good thing, because without the Boston Tea Party the revolution might not have come as fast.
Lexington and Concord
We will fight to the death for independence!
The Boston Tea Party was kind of a wake up call to the British, because it showed that the colonists were willing to sacrifice themselves if it meant independence. I think that it was kind of the first time that they really showed that, and it would create a pathway for them to rebel many more times.
The First Continental Congress was very important because the next big organizational step toward declaring independence. It was a huge step in their organization, and without it I don't think that they would've been united enough to go into real battle.
This is the end! No more taxation without representation!!
We should send the king a Declaration of Rights and Complaints!
As the first official battle, I think that this really showed how serious the colonists were. They were ready to lose their own men if it meant independence.
