  • The Massacre in Boston
  • Stop this revolution or we will fire!
  • This is the only way to get our freedom!
  • The Massacre in Boston
  • We told you to stop this nonsense but you refused, so this is your punishment
  • Wait until people find out about this
  • Intolerable Acts
  • We can't let the government go unpunished for that!
  • Why a massacre?
  • At this time, the French and Indian war concluded and the British made a treaty which was called Treaty of Paris with Britain, France, and Spain. The British had their land and everything was fine until the the King of Britain declared laws which were called Acts, in order to keep Britain in order but some of them were really bad and Colonists got angry. One night, some British soldiers went out into a town and citizens decided to throw rocks and snowballs to anger the soldiers and take back the laws.
  • Intolerable Acts
  • I and the citizens have proven you two guilty! You will have your fingers burned off!
  • You Colonists have no chance against us trained soldiers
  • As much as the soldiers attempts to stop the citizens from attacking them, the citizens continued throwing rocks and snowballs and eventually the soldiers panicked and one man fired into the crowed of people. Then all of the soldiers shot into the crowed and all of the citizens backed of and ran, at least 4 people died and many were injured but later on the soldiers would regret that night because that was where the citizens drew the line and revolted and this is where it all starts
  • Battle at Ticonderoga
  • ATTACK!
  • After that massacre, the soldiers and the government didn't really think about that incident that much until an invention that Benjamin Franklin made to deliver news by a individual which would be received by all the 13 Colonies. An individual called Paul Revere wrote a story about what happened in Boston that night and eventually, the news had spread across America and as soon as people heard about what happened and that's where the colonist crossed the line. This is where the war starts.
  • Battle at Ticonderga
  • It will all be worth it once we make it
  • This is torture!
  • This worried the government because the Colonists could turn against Britain and this would hurt Britain because of their last battle. Britain had lost a lot of money because of that battle and the soldiers and supplies were very low so instead of fighting back, Britain decided to trail the soldiers that killed, two were proven innocent and two were proven guilty and a punishment was to have they're thumbs burned off, but the punishment did not sooth the colonist, and they were still angry.
  • At this point, the war had already begun, the Colonist vs the British which was all happening in America, in New York which was called Fort Ticonderoga. Colonists knew that this fort was British territory and the Colonists knew if they took it over, a whole chunk of land would be there's so a surprise attack was planned while the Second Continental Congress. The Colonist thought they were at a disadvantage because they had to climb up into the fort but afterwards the Colonst won.
  • Stop complaining!
  • After the Battle at Fort Ticonderoga, the Colonist won that battle surprisingly with no training. Nobody died and once the Colonists won, they brought canons from the British along with them because they need the extra firepower down in Boston where all the action is. Unfortunately the canons were really heavy and was hard for the Colonist to bring to Boston knowing that Fort Ticonderoga was in present New York but they had to make it quick because they are going to need to win the war.
