  • Growing Tensions Between Britain and the Colonies
  • The Quartering Act
  • The Stamp Act
  • The colonies and Britain were once peaceful. They fought together against the French in the French and Indian War. The war left Britain in huge debt. Britain then turned to the colonies, and Parliament voted to charge them for different items, like tea and paper.
  • The Boston Massacre
  • After the French and Indian war, British Parliament stationed soldiers to protect the colonists. Parliament made the colonists give the soldiers food, resources, and somewhere to sleep.
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • After the French and Indian war, Britain had gained a lot of debt, so they taxed the colonists on the simplest things. One of them was paper. The colonists had to pay more money for paper, and to show they did, they had to get a blue stamp.
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • Growing ever more tired of the British, the colonists  began to assault the soldiers. They made fun of their red coats. In Boston, people threw rocks, snowballs, and chunks of ice at them. The soldiers thought they heard fire from their general, so they shot. They killed 5 and injured 6.
  • After the Boston Massacre, the colonists were growing inpatient of the British soldiers. They boycotted tea from British imports, and the king noticed. He said they could only buy tea from one place. The colonists dressed up as Native Americans,  boarded the import ships, and poured out all the tea into the water.
  • After the Boston Tea Party, Parliament passed new laws that were simply intolerable. The Boston Port  Act was one of them. It banned any shipments to come into, or out of, the Boston Harbor. Boston was nearly starved, but luckily, people from around the colonies sent food to the city.
