Storyboard Text

  • Don't thank me, thank the British government for passing the Quartering Act of 1765, which forces colonists to allow British soldiers like yourself into our homes.
  • Thank you for allowing me into your home.
  • Thank you for paying your paper tax. Now here is your paper.
  • I have to because of the Stamp Act of 1765.
  • I know, we should form a group and name it the Sons and Daughters of Liberty and tell people to stop buying British products until they stop taxing us and being unfair.
  • We cannot live like this, they are asking to much from us. We barely have enough money to take care of our families because of these acts and taxes.
  • If Great Britain is going to tax our tea, then we will throw all their tea overboard.
  • In response to the colonists smuggling British products into the colonies to avoid paying taxes, the British government passed the Sugar Act of 1764, which reduced taxes on molasses. Its purpose was to control trade in the colonies, to stop smuggling, and raise money for the British government.
  • Yes, I have. It says that we, the colonists should leave Great Britain and form our own government.
  • Have you read this, it is Thomas Pain's book, Common Sense.
  • Then it is settled. We are revolting against Great Britain for taxing us and failing to consider our feelings.
  • I agree with Thomas Pain, we should leave Great Britain; they haven't been doing anything good for us anyway. Those taxes and acts they keep passing are making it hard for us colonists to survive.
