Storyboard Text

  • Royal Proclamation of 1763
  • Native American Land Only; Colonists stay out!
  • We helped win the war! Why can't we go?
  • The Stamp Act of 1765 
  • Ma'am, the document you requested is now available. You already paid for everything but the stamp.
  • Postal Services
  • The Boston Massacre of 1770
  • Yeah
  • You guys are so mean!
  • After the French and Indian War people living in the colonies began moving west.  Conflicts with Native Americans increased and the colonists asked the British king to protect them with troops.  Instead, the King issued an official statement closing the western land to settlement.  The colonists were angry and felt betrayed by the British government.
  • Boston Tea Party of 1773
  • Get rid of all the tea!
  • Remove the Tea Act!
  • The Stamp Act was a law established by the British Parliament that required the colonists to pay a tax on certain items. The majority of the colonists were infuriated with the British Parliament and comprehended the taxes as unfair and unjust-for the British Parliament passed this new law without the voice of the colonists. The colonists would later create the slogan, "No taxation without representation!"
  • Intolerable Acts of 1774
  • Starting now, the Intolerable Acts are in effect.
  • The Boston Massacre occurred in March 1770 when a group of guards shot into a crowd of colonists, killing five of them instantly. The colonists had initially gathered around a soldier, harassing him, when his fellow soldiers came to his defense. Altogether they were threatened verbally. As a result, they fired into the crowd with no orders, killing five colonists. The colonists felt afraid of the British soldiers due to their actions. 
  • Common Sense in 1776
  • Britain has been negligent about the colonies... We deserve independence from all our hard work!
  • The Boston Tea Party occurred in December 1773 when a band of colonists disposed 324 chests full of tea into the Boston harbor. The colonists were incandescent about a law called the Tea Act that empowered one company the right to authorize the tea that was sold in the colonies. 
  • I second that!
  • The Intolerable Acts was a retribution for the occurrence of the Boston Tea Party. Many of the punishments angered the colonists. Some of them include the right to self govern, the Quartering Act, and the Boston Port Bill. As a result, the colonists held a meeting consisting all the colonies but Georgia, and concurred to not purchase any British merchandise. 
  • No!
  • No fair!
  • "Common Sense" is a pamphlet published in January 1776 that was written by Thomas Paine. He distinctly writes out that the colonies should gain independence and segregate from Britain's authority. Rapidly, the pamphlet became popular and more and more colonists were determined to gain independence from Britain.
