All my colonist's, we shall stay here and not move any more west.
Proclamation of 1767
The Stamp Act
In the 1600 Britan, France, and spain often fought another to gain more territory.In 1754 the argument turned into a war. It lasted lmost 10 yeard. first Brittan lost many wars. They had bright red uniforms that made them easy targets. Britan got more land, However that led to many debts. over 30 billion dollars today.
Britian then moved west. Native American already lived here. They thought that they were going to destroy their way of life. In a result, the Indians attacked the britans. Over 2000 people died from this. Britan then passed a law , that the britans would stay, and the Indians got all, the land west. however people id not like this. So many ignord this law and continued to move west.
The Boston Tea party
After the french and indian war, they British government made the law that the colinists had to pay tax. They had to have a blue stamp on a pice of paper that they used to mark that they paid the taxes. Many colonist refused to buy the stamps. Lots of people tried to scare off the tax collectors by attack them at work, or even their houses.
One cold night in March 5, 1770, a soldier was guarding outside a tx bank. A crowd started crowding him, they then started calling him names and snow balls at him. Then more soldiers started to step in and help. One of the soldiers said not to fire. Then they thought they heard fire. So all the soldiers fired.
The colonists loved tea. However they refused to buy from britan. They then said they can only buy from East Indian Company. They did not like this law. So on December 16 1773. A few men climed aboard the ship. They made sure they only damaged the tea. They dumped 90,000 pounds of tea in the ocean.
In September 1774, a tax collecter was counting his money. Then some colonist came along, and threw him into a bunch of melted tar, They then threw feathers all over him, and forced hot tea down his throat.
