  • I am a loyalists and follow King George III
  • I am a colonist and is against having taxes 
  • America was being controlled by Britain 3000 miles away. The person who enforced these taxes was Thomas Hutchinson he was the governor of Massachusetts.  An example for a tax was Stamp Act and the Tea Tax reactions ranged from boycotts of British goods to riots and attacks on the tax collectors. The people that were against the taxes were called colonists and there was a gang called the Sons of Liberty,the people that invorced the taxes were called loyalists. 
  • Is there anything else you would like 
  • The Boston Massacre occurred on March 5, 1770. A squad of British soldiers, come to support a sentry who was being pressed by a heckling, snowballing crowd, let loose a volley of shots. Three persons were killed immediately and two died later of their wounds; among the victims was Crispus Attucks, a man of black or Indian parentage.  The Boston Massacre is remembered as a key event in helping to galvanize the colonial public to the Patriot cause
  • The shot heard from around the world 
  • On the night of December 16, 1773, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty boarded ships, the group of Massachusetts colonists disguised as Mohawk Indians threw 342 chests of tea overboard. The “Boston Tea Party,” was in protest of the British Parliament’s Tea Act of 1773, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company by lowering its tea tax and granting it a virtual  monopoly on the American tea trade. The whole act happened as a result of taxation without representation. 
  • We lost
  • On this day in 1774 British Parliment renewed the quartering act allowing red coats to stay in private American homes if needed.The news of 342 chests of tea dumped into Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773, in what was dubbed the Boston Tea Party, reached Britain in January 1774. Disgusted by the colonists’ action against private property, the British Parliament quickly decided upon the Coercive Acts as a means of reasserting British control over the colonies and punishing Boston.
  •  On April 19, 1775  Acting on orders from London to suppress the rebellious colonists, General Thomas Gage, recently appointed royal governor of Massachusetts, ordered his troops to seize the colonists’ military stores at Concord. En route from Boston, the British force of 700 men was met on Lexington Green by 77 local minutemen and others who had been forewarned of the raid by the colonists’ efficient lines of communication
  •  The British moved on to Concord. Most of the American military supplies had been hidden or destroyed before the British troops arrived. A British covering party at Concord’s North Bridge was finally confronted by 320 to 400 American patriots and forced to withdraw. The march back to Boston was a genuine ordeal for the British, with Americans continually firing on them from behind roadside houses, barns, trees, and stone walls.
