  • No Taxation Without Representation!
  • The phrase "no taxation without representation" means that that colonists didn't want to be taxed unless they have a representative in Parliament.
  • The Boston Massacre was when intimidated British soldiers fired at and killed some rowdy colonists who were pestering them and acting violent. The colonists were acting that way as they are not happy with the soldiers being there or Britain and taking their anger out on the soldiers.
  • The Boston Tea Party was when colonists dressed up as Native Americans and threw the British tea off the British ships and into the ocean. The colonists did this because they didn't want to pay the tax that was on tea.

  • A war eventually happened between Britain and the colonists because the colonists wanted independence and war was the only option.
