Stay away from us you filthy red coats! I don't care what the British king says! This is our home and our country!
Let us in! The Quartering act says you have to let British soldiers into your home!
This is an outrage! I can't even play a game of cards without being taxed!
Let the British think these are actually their tax collectors instead of effigy's.
Come on ya filthy lobsters!
The Quartering act was a significant event leading up to the Declaration of Independence because if you look at the comic, the British were forcing themselves into the colonists homes. Home is a place to feel welcome and safe and when the British came they took that away. The Colonists were not okay with that and that really started to make them rebellious against King George III.
Boston Tea Party
They think they can tax our tea! Ha! They'll definitely repeal the Tea Act after this!
The Stamp Act was a significant event leading up to the Declaration of Independence because it began to intensify the Colonists anger with the British. They were mad at King George for taxing them without representation so they expressed their anger by boycotting all British goods, creating protest groups and more.
First Contenential Congress
We must call for the repeal of the the 13 parliament Acts. King George needs to realize we won't stand for these taxes without being represented!
The Boston Massacre was a significant event leading up to the Declaration of Independence because the Colonists had all this resentment built up against the British and it kept getting fueled by them. In response, the Colonists saw this as an opportunity to create a piece of propaganda; it showed the British lining up to shoot Colonists like it was planned, and that began to make more people rebel against the British.
Thomas Paine's Common Sense
I know what you mean Felicia. I actually get what Thomas Paine s saying!
The Boston Tea party was a significant event leading up to the declaration of independence because since the british were so mad with King George the third about the Tea Act, they decided to take action and actually really affect the British with their protests. They wanted the British to know that they weren't going to stop and let these taxes happen even if it eventually meant war.
The First Continental Congress was a significant event leading up to the Declaration of Independence because the Colonists were beginning to actually feel like they were doing something important and helpful in a more peaceful way. This was one of their first steps to realizing why the British government didn't work and that maybe they wanted their own government in their own country.
Thomas Paine's Common Sense was a a significant event leading up to the Declaration of Independence because the Colonists who felt contradicted between America and Britain, began to feel more Patriotic because of Thomas Paine's pamphlet. The result of this definitely helped the Colonists as they began to fight for their independence because now they had many more people on their side.
You know, I actually don't agree with the British Josh. I want to be a Patriot and not a Loyalist anymore.
