I wish I could learn more about what happened during the revolution. Maybe I should use my magic powers to go back in time!!
This is a wedding, but for it to be legal, they needed an expensive stamp. This was the Stamp Act. They are relatives of Thomas Paine, who wrote a book called Common Sense, about how the British are making a bad decision.
This is the First Continental Congress. They made a ton of important desicions about the colonies and how to respond to the new taxes
They rebelled when the Quartering Act was put in place. It said that people had to house soldiers and pay for their expenses.
The Boston Massacre left everyone shaken. After this, there were many more acts of rebellion. One of them was the Declaration of Independence. That was a document stating that the colonies were now part of their own country. This started a long chain reaction, and then the Patriots WON!!
This was the town militia. They were the army against the British forces. Some may say that they can't fight, but they won, because of General Washington!
This was the Boston Tea Party. The colonies were mad about the new taxes on tea, so they dumped all the tea out into the water.
