The Stamp Act
Dang it! Since when has that been a rule?
If you would like the last newspaper, hope you remembered your stamp
Boston Tea Party
Mommy! what's wrong with the sea?
The war caused Great Britain to go into lots of debt, Parliament decided that the Colonist should help pay for them by taxes. This made the Colonist feel annoyed and not represented.
This act is significant to the revolution because the Colonist get so angry that the colonist start acting very violently to the British and colonists from different colonies start meeting in secret to figure out what they should do about the British.
Second Continental Congress
Dear King George,III, We believe that should take a good look at our list of greivences Sincerely, 13 Colonies. P.S We have our Minute Men ready to take on your Lobster backs.
This Act shows the British that the Colonists will not stand for the un just taxing. The Sons of liberty will not stand for this any more.
Thomas Paine's Common Sense
I was a Torie but now Thomas Paine has opened my eyes to show me I am rebellious patriot!
The British being enraged at the Colonist just made everthing worse and the colonists decided to start having secret meetings to discuss the out rageous things that the Britsh have been doing to them.
Some of the Colonist did not follow the rules, so the British punished us by closing of the harbor and not letting us use the sea
The Colonist feel Rebellious at this point but the are being reason with the King. When the King doesn't even look at the letter and sends the Hessians it make s the Colonist feel like the are ready to declare war on the British.
Thomas convinced so many people to join the Patriots with simple words that everyone could understand. It helped the war effort with a bunch of people on the Patriotic side. The Colonists were feeling ready to go to war.
