The colonists did not like the fact that they had to pay taxes to the Britain for tea. Some of the main leaders included John Handcock, Joseph Warren, and Samuel Adams, but they were many others as well.
No taxes for Tea!!!
The colonist did not agree with paying taxes, because they did not have a representer in the British Parliament, so there saying was, " No Taxation Without Representation!"
"No Taxation Without Representation!"
During a protest against the taxes, a group known as the Sons Of Liberty got together and divied through out the colonies. One fight ended with shots fired and several men killed.
The new laws and punishments, didn't cause the colonists to weaken, or feel lower. These new laws caused an alliance between colonies to rise against Britain.
Twelve of thirteen colonies directed representatives to begin a petition for King George III get rid of the Intolerable Acts. Their petition wasn't responded to.
GET RID OF INTOLERABLE RULES, AND ACTS!!
All of these events leading up didn't make the British happy. And the War BEGAN!
