  • Proclamation Act of 1763
  • Stamp Act and Repeal of 1765
  • The Townshend Acts of 1765
  • This act prevented settlers to live beyond the Appalachian Mts. This allowed England to control the Westward  Expansion, which would be under British control. This act then failed and had a minimal effect on the colonists. This helped lead to the American Revolution because the colonists started to rebel.
  • The Boston Massacre of 1770
  • The Stamp Act was where colonists could only buy paper materials with a British stamp on it. Besides that, the colonists also had to pay a tax with each paper material they bought. This then angered the colonists, so Patrick Henry called for a repeal for the taxes, or the King would face a munity. After, the Stamp Act Congress was created in New York. This helped lead to the American Revolution because the colonists started to become angry with the King of England.
  • The Tea Act & Boston Tea Party of 1773
  • The Townshend Acts were where Charles Townshend enacted the Quartering Act of 1765, which stated that the colonists would have to provide living quarters and supplies for British Troops. Although providing living quarters was not that bad, giving supplies is what angered the colonists. Then came the Townshend Duties, which led to taxes on imports and "external taxes". This helped lead to the American Revolution because these acts lead to the Boston Massacre. 
  • The Intolerable Acts of 1774
  • The Boston Massacre all started when British Private Hugh White and some colonists got into an argument. When the argument escalated, people started to harass White. Then more soldiers started to show up to maintain order. Then someone threw something at Private Montgomery knocking him down and caused him to open fire at the crowd. So when he did so did the other soldiers killing 5 colonists and 1 free Black, Chrispus Attacks. Over all, 13 people were arrested: 8 British Soldiers, 1 officer, and 4 colonists.
  • The Boston Tea Party was a protest against the British Government. The protesters were the Sons Of Liberty who dressed up as Indians and threw 342 chests of tea into the water. This helped lead to the American Revolution because the colonists were rebelling even more.
  • The Intolerable Acts were a response to the Boston Tea Party. The acts were: they closed off part of Boston, they reduced self government, those accused of the crime would be tried in England, and that they must quarter troops. This then started a new resistance throughout the colonies. This helped lead to the American Revolution because this was on of the highest points that the colonists did not want to follow orders from England.
