Boston Massacre - March 5, 1770
Fire!? uhh OK sir!
This is important because this is what some people consider to be the very beginning of Colonist/English conflict. When the British won the 7 years war, they gained more land. However, Britian did not allow the colonists to settle in the newfound land, and this caused the colonists to get upset, and cross the Appalachian Mountains anyways.
Boston Tea Party - December 16, 1773
No more tea to tax, now is there? MWAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!
The Townshend acts were a series of laws put forth by King George III and parliament that put taxes on everyday items such as glass, oil, paint paper and tea. The acts were ridiculous to the colonists and they started to rebel against the taxes.

This is also important because this is one of the first major events that led to the full American revolution. A mob of colonists were protesing the townshend acts. The colonists were acting aggressive, and a fight broke out between the colonists and British soldiers.
First Continental Congress - 1774
YEA! LETS FIGHT BACK AGAINST ENGLAND!
The Boston Tea party was an act the colonists, specifically the Sons Of Liberty, did to protest the new tea tax. The Sons dressed as Native Americans and dumped tons of money worth of tea into the Boston Harbor.
The Coercive Acts, or the "Intolerable Acts", as the colonists called them, were acts passed by Parliament to prevent further instances like the Boston Tea Party. The acts consisted of the quartering acts, more taxes, and the Declatory act, which stated that parliament can whatever they want, whenever they want.
I, King George III, Hereby sign off the Coercive acts!
The First Continental Congress was a meeting of 12 or the 13 colonies, in which they spoke and talked about the Intolerable Acts, and is looked at as the very first official action of revolution against Britian.
These new Laws are preposterous! we absolutely NEED to take some sort of action!
