Storyboard Text

  • Boston Massacre - 1770
  • BOOM!
  •  Boston Tea Party - 1773
  • Throw the tea!
  • Intolerable Acts - 1774
  • This is intolerable!
  • Boston Harbor is closed. No more town hall meetings.
  • The Boston Massacre was a major event that caused the declaration of independence because this was the first conflict that the colonists and the British soldiers had. This made the colonists even more mad that some of their men had died and they had a slight thought of independence.
  • Second Continental Congress - 1775
  • War!
  • Olive Branch Petition!
  • The Boston Tea Party contributed to the declaration of independence because the colonists were so outraged they had to buy tea from the British East Indian Company, that they decided to protest and throw a great deal of tea off a British ship. This starts many more significant events that lead to the declaration of independence.
  • Battle of Bunker Hill - 1775
  • Oh my gosh! This pamphlet is right!
  • The British close Boston Harbor and forbid town hall meetings. This is an important action because the colonists get very furious and have the First Continental Congress. They talk about independence and this was the first time they thought of asking the King for independence. 
  • Common Sense - 1776
  • We should be on the colonists side!
  • The Second Continental Congress contributed to the declaration of independence because many patriots want to go to war with the British but many loyalists still want peace. They send the king a petition and the king refuses to read it which makes the colonists go to war. This was the congress where the colonists wanted to fight for independence.
  • The Battle of Bunker Hill was very crucial for independence because it taught the British that the colonists could now fight for themselves and they didn't need the British anymore. The colonists gain courage and strength to declare independence.
  • A man named Thomas Paine wrote a pamphlet called Common Sense and this was very influential because it shifted the colonists opinions. Those who were still on the British side were now on the colonists side and everyone was ready to declare their independence.
