The Boston Massacre of 1770
The stamps were bought for legal documents and ship papers because it was a requirement for Merchants and lawyers. The principle and the president were upsetting the colonists. Patrick Henry called for a repeal or the King would face a mutiny.
The Tea Act & Boston Tea Party of 1773
This act was named after Charles Townshend who was the British treasury secretary. This act enacted the Quartering Act of 1765 which was a parliament that required colonists to provide housing and food for British soldiers. It also enacted the Townshend Duties which taxed colonists for lead, paint, paper, and tea. Both of the these angered the colonists.
The Intolerable Acts of 1774
Colonists got into an argument with a bunch of British soldiers. The argument escalated and the crowd threw something at a soldier named Montgomery, he got mad and fired into the crowd killing 5 colonists, including a free black named Ciapus Attaacks. On November 27, 1770, John Adams represented the soldiers. He claimed that the soldiers need to be able to protect themselves, cause they were in danger. All were sent to trial and accused of murder but only 2 were found guilty.
This act meant colonists had to pay high takes on tea but the majority of them refused. The Boston Tea Party was a protest by colonists against British Government. The colonists plus the Sons of liberty threw the tea overboard. While doing this the Sons of Liberty were dressed up like Indians as a disguise but failed cause the British knew it was really colonists, not Indians.
The response to the Boston Tea Party. The first things they did was close the Boston Harbor. Then those who were accused for crimes now had to go to England for trial. They also quartered troops. This sparked new residence throughout the colonists.
