We won! We won! Even though at the beginning we were losing, Britain realized it was time to get serious and spend some money.
I can't believe stupid British won. I was so sure France would win, with all of the Native Americans on their side.
The Stamp Act Congress 1767
We should peacefully resolve this first. Lets send a petition to the king!
Lets boycott all British goods! That'll show them who's who's around here!
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
Writs of Assistance
But-but sir, I s-saw you put that there. It is not mine. Please! Please! What have I ever done! I am-am loyal to the crown. PLEASE!
Ah, that is what they all say. You are a dishonest traitor. Your name will be given to the King as untrustworthy.
Get out of my house. We have paid all of our taxes and never smuggled anything. I refuse to let you frame us.
The French and Indian War was essentially where the revolution began, as it was what left Britain in debt, causing them to tax the Colonists.
The Boston Massacre 1770
These people brought this upon themselves. They were taunting us and threatening us and even throwing things at us.
STUPID RED COATS. LOOK AT WHAT YOU'VE DONE!
This was the first time the Colonists really worked together to stand up for what they believed were their rights.
The Coercive/Intolerable Acts
The Writs of Assistance really angered the Colonists, as they saw it as unjust, and it became a big part of their decision to declare war
The Battle of Bunker Hill
We won't give up the top of the hill! WE WILL FIGHT TO THE END!
We are going to run out of amo! We must surrender!
The Boston "Massacre" was the first real bloodshed of the war, along with the first sign of violence.
The intolerable were the final straw: after they were passed, violence broke out and eventually the Colonists declared war upon Britain, and so it is clear that ultimately the Intolerable acts were what pushed the Colonies into war.
No town hall meetings in Massachusetts? Its outrageous! How dare they treat us like this!
I can't believe they prohibited access to the harbor. Its so unfair! Curse you Lobster Backs!
The Battle of Bunker hill was very significant because it was the first ever battle in the revolutionary war, and it really showed the Patriots war strategy: don't give up unless you have already lost.
We will keep sending soldiers up until you inevitably run out of amo. Surrender now.
