  • Growing Tensions Between the Colonists and Britain
  • Isabella Durbin
  • The Quartering Act
  • The Stamp Act
  • I would love if you helped! I am making clothes for our family.
  • What are you doing? Can I help?
  • The colonists and Britain had a bad relationship because Britain wanted to control the colonists, but the colonists disagreed with Britain's views. They also didn't like how they were told to pay taxes to Britain because they had debt from the French and Indian War, so they protested. Britain's response was to make many new laws punishing the colonists for their actions and opinions.
  • The Boston Massacre
  • The British government made a law called the Quartering Act. Colonists were forced to feed and allow British Soldiers to stay in their houses. The colonists didn't like having to provide for the soldiers.
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • Parliament passed a law called the Stamp Act in 1765. The British leaders thought that the colonists should help pay the British soldiers that were protecting them, so they were told that they had to pay extra money for stamps to put on all types of tax papers. Many women made their own clothes instead of buying them. In March, 1776, Parliament repealed the act because the colonists refused to follow it.
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • What are you doing with all of this food?
  • The colonists had been angry that the British soldiers were living in heir towns and cities. They thought the soldiers were rude and rowdy. On March 5, 1770, when a crowd of colonists started to insult the soldiers, they shot and killed 5 people and injured 6 people.
  • After the Boston Massacre, the British government decided to repeal all of the unpopular taxes, but kept all of the taxes on tea. The colonists were only allowed to buy tea from one company. A group of colonists dressed up like Native Americans and threw tea in to the Boston Harbor from a ship to protest against the government.
  • After the Boston Tea Party, Parliament made many new laws to punish the colonists. One law that was made was called the Boston Port Act, which had closed the Boston Harbor and no trade ships could get in or out. Many workers in Boston had lost their jobs, and the other colonists were worried they would starve. Some colonists sent money, food, and supplies to Boston.
  • We are packing it up to send to the colonists in Boston.
