  • Causes of the American Revolution
  • Background
  • Cause #1
  • Tensions will rise...
  • Reaction #1
  • The Proclamation of 1763- This law did not allow American colonists to move past the Appalachian Mountains and this angered colonists because many had already moved there.
  • Cause #2
  • The Tea Act- This tax was passed by British Parliament and it allowed one British Company, The British East India Tea Company to sell to colonists.  The prices of tea were lowered but Britain did not repeal the taxes, so colonists still had to pay taxes on tea.  
  • Reaction #2
  • The Boston Tea Party- The taxes angered colonists because they believed in "no taxation without representation." American colonists dumped 300 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor in response to the Tea Act.  This reaction led up to the Intolerable Acts.
  • The Intolerable Acts- Instead of repealing the Tea Act, the British closed the Boston Harbor, which stopped the colonists' method of getting supplies and banned town meetings in Massachusetts.
  • Other colonies sent supplies to Boston. The committees of correspondence (delegates of the colonies) called a meeting of all colonies (except Georgia) and decided to stop all trade with Britain. This reaction led up to Britain adding more limitations to the colonies.
