We need reinforcements, our men are being killed rapidly
Lets Take over The British
We must win and take over!
The Proclamation of 1763
King Goerge III is not allowing colonists into this area.
This is not fair, how could they shut off land that we helped win over from us colonists?
Do not enter!
The Quartering act - 1775
You have no right to be looking into our houses!
Open up immediately!
Orders from King George allow us to com into your house.
The French and Indian War is significant because while the war was going on, there were many guns and reinforcements that were made as well as doctors to help the injured. These things costed a lot of money which put Britain into debt. To Pay off this debt they decided to tax the colonists.
The Boston Massacre - 1770
Not until we get what we want...
Stop throwing rocks at us!
The Proclamation of 1763 is what started to anger the colonists. This act is what began the protests against the Parliament and all of the actions done by the colonists.
Boston Tea Party - 1773
We must dump as many tea boxes as we can!
Now they will know not to mess with us.
The Quartering act allowed soliders or red coats to go into colonists houses in which the colonists were to serve food etc. This very much so made the colonists extremely irritated and even more angrier, causing actions to be made.
Thomas Paines Common Sense
The piece of writing called Common Sense.
The Boston Massacre is what ingnited the wrath of the colonists. Colonists were killed, but propaganda was used to make it seem worse, yet the Colonists were still very enraged with King George and Parliament
How can you kill us Colonists, you will pay!
The Boston Tea Party played a major role, but this time it was the Colonists not the government. After the Tea act in 1773 colonists felt as if they must do something about the taxes, so they decided to dump tea over the harbor. This was one of the acts that set them up for their indapendance.
Lets show King George, III
Thomas Paines Common sense, altered the minds of some who were confused about wether or not they should believe the colonists. If this had not happened, the Colonists may not have gotten their indapendance and this is why its such an important piece of writing. There would have been less colonists against the millions of British soliders
I say we side with the Colonists because after all were should have a say in things.
Wow this piece of writing has got me 2nd guessing the British Government.
