  • The Proclamation Line 1763
  • This is outrageous!
  • The King has ordered tht you not settle past this line.
  • Why though?
  • Yes!
  • The Stamp Act 1765
  • We wont.
  • Don't mess these cards up. They cost a fortune with that new tax in place.
  • The Townshend Acts 1767
  • Alright lads, let's get everything to the docks.
  • So stupid.
  • I feel bad for the colonists. Everything we bring to them is taxed.
  • They do look angry.
  • After the end of the French and Indian War, colonists were eager to move west and claim the land they fought for. But King George III issued a proclamation that forbade the colonists from moving past the Appalachian mountains. The colonists were furious and felt betrayed by their king.
  • The Boston Massacre 1770
  • The British Parliament passed the Stamp Act in March of 1765. It placed a tax on every single piece of printed paper colonists used. 
  • The Boston Tea Party 1773
  • That's the last one.
  • The Townshend Acts were a series of measures that taxed goods that England imported to the colonies. They were put in place by Parliament as a way to pay for some of the debt caused by the French and Indian War. But the retaliation from the colonists was so severe that all taxes were repealed except for the one on tea.
  • The Intolerable Acts 1774
  • No meetings!
  • Not cool.
  • On March 5, 1770, there was a small scuffle between British soldiers and colonial residents. The fight ultimately took five lives when the soldiers fired on the  residents. Colonial leaders were able to use this event to their advantage and shine a negative light on England. This was one of the many event that caused a slow build up of tension between the colonies and England.
  • To protest the recent passing of the Tea Act, the Sons of Libery boarded three ships on the night of December 16, 1773 and threw 342 chests of tea overboard.
  • The Sons of Liberty will not be stopped.
  • Let's go before they catch us.
  • The Intolerable Acts were a form of punishment for Massechusetts for the Boston Tea Party. The acts closed the Boston Harbor until the owners of the tea were paid for the damages done. They also banned town meetings and appointed General Gage, a British commander, governor of Massechusetts.
