We were here first and we control trade with the natives!
This land and economy should be British!
Proclamation of 1763
We have been in salutary neglect for years and now you restrict us?!?!
You cannot cross the Appalachain mountains
The tea act shall not exist without representation
NOOOOOOO not tar and feathers
The French and Indian War was one of the vital elements that led to taxation without representation in the colonies. The British thought that the expenses of the war could be paid off by the Colonists without any trouble, but they were wrong
You were throwing rocks at us!
You attacked us!
There are 7000 of us and 77 of you, you are going to die!
The Proclamation of 1763 was the first time that the colonists have been restricted without representation. The Colonists were not angry, but they just ignored the soldiers restricting them.
The battle of Lexington and Concord
The Stamp Act caused the outrage of the Colonists and led to the Sons and Daughters of Liberty to counteract the British. This rage had been built off of just a little bit of annoyance.
Thomas Pain's Common Sense
... And that is why it is common sense to fight the British for freedom. It is the only way to have peace
Even though five died, the Boston Massacre was portrayed as a mass killing in propaganda by Paul Revere. The propaganda exasperated the Colonists and made many want to do something about it.
We were just protesting!
The Battle of Lexington and Concord was the first unofficial battle of the American Revolution. This was when the Colonists decided that they were done playing games and led to them fighting for their rights with guns.
Thomas Paine's Common Sense was the final push to convince almost all of the Colonists to choose the patriotic side. He convinced many of the Colonists wanting to go to war for freedom.
