Hello there! My name is Betty Crocker and today I will be showing some main events leading up to American revolution.

After repealing the Stamp Act, Parliament created the Declaratory Act, stating Britain could tax the colonists.
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION

This is where it all begins.
During the 1760's/1770's Britain ratified multiple acts in order to try and get colonists to pay taxes, so they can pay off debt from the French and Indian war. Here we will see the patriots and Britain fighting, while attempting to force colonists to do what Britain says.

We must put an end to this!
The colonists were getting even more angry because Britain was trying to tax the colonists and the colonists didn't have a delegate. Therefore creating the saying "No taxation without representation".

In 1770 the Boston Massacre breaks out, it all starts with a group of colonists throwing rocks and sticks, which soon turns into shots fired and 5 colonists dead.

In 1773 the Tea Act was formed, causing the East India company to gain full control of tea trade, and the worst part, it caused a tax on tea. And the colonists were not enjoying it one bit.
The Tea act has just been established, and we are angry.
How could they?! This is absurd!
Following the Tea Act, is the Boston Tea Party. During the night a group of colonists snuck onto a ship and threw all of the tea into the ocean as a revolt.
