In this box, there is a sign in front of the Appalachian Mountains saying the Colonists were not allowed there. However, they went to live in area anyways to prove they can do whatever they want.
BOSTON TEA PARTY, 1773
This is how we feel about your tea!
After the Colonists were taxed on sugar, King George III passed a law that British soldiers in the colonies were allowed to live in Colonists' houses and eat their food. The Colonists were enraged.
LEXINGTON AND CONCORD, 1775
Are we winning?
Why are we losing?
The battle of Lexington and Concord
In the Boston Massacre, 5 Colonists were killed. But it wasn't entirely the soldiers' faults. Colonists went up to the men in red, threw rocks, instulted, and hurled snowballs at them. The situation was turned around due to an etching by Paul Revere.
COMMON SENSE, 1776
WOW! This book sure did change our minds about England!
The Boston Tea Party occurred in December of 1773 when Colonists dressed up as Native Americans and dumped British tea from 3 ships into the harbor. This was because tea was being taxed. (Taxation without representation)
Oh no! The tea!
The battle of Lexington and Concord started when someone shot a bullet (it is unknown who shot). The battle left at least 8 people wounded and dead but the Colonists victorious against the British soldiers.
"Common Sense" is a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine that helped convince many Colonists that declaring independence is the right thing to do.
