  • The French and Indian War 1756-1763
  • The Stamp Act 1765
  • The Stamp Act blah,blah,blah, blah,blah,blah,
  • Tea Act 1773 May 10th
  • Tea Act
  •  In this picture the French and the British are on two separate, sides. The French have a Native American inspired tent splattered in blood to show that even though they had the Native Americans on their side it still wasn't enough. This is an important event because it sets the foundation for the events to come. If the French had won the war, the United States may never have come to be. but because of the French and Indian war, the British lost a lot of money, they had to tax the colonists, and because of the taxes the colonists rebelled.
  • Boston Tea Party 1773 Dec 16
  • This picture shows the proclamation of the Stamp Act, and colonists horrified faces at taxation without representation. This even is important because its the first thing that gets under the colonists skin; it's the first thing that the British do to try and get money from the colonists; it's the first thing that starts the thought of a revolution.
  • Intolerable Acts 1774
  • The home of a colonist and a colonist chocking on their tea as they're told about the Tea Act. The event is important because it shows how the colonists went from shocked at the Stamp Act, to angry at the Tea Act,  this brings them closer to a rebellion.
  • Battle of Lexington 
  • This picture shows the Colonists dressed up as Native Americans dumping boxes of tea in the harbor. This event shows the first real act of rebellion the colonists do and it really hurts the British, the British are forced to deal with this, where as they could just ignore the colonists when they tared and feathered the Tax collectors. This really gets the British attention.
  • British East India Tea Company
  • This picture shows the British Officers stomping on the law (shown in the form of handcuffs and parchment) because the British Parliament has granted them the right to do whatever they want and only be trailed in Britain, where they can surely be excused. This event is important because this is the last straw for the Colonists, the majority of them are planning a rebellion. 
  • This picture shows a world map and the socail traveling of a gun shot, how the news that he small profited colonists decided to take on one of the strongest militaries of their time. This shot is the physical start of the revolution.
