Us nine colonies got together to discuss this terrible new stamp act.
WE HATE THE STAMP ACT!!!
Boston Massacre (Propaganda)-1770
They provoked us!
We didn't do anything! They just started shooting!
The Boston Tea Party-1773
We aren't real Native Americans! We're just colonists dressed up as them to convey our frustration!
The colonists are illegally hiding weapons from us!!
The Stamp Act Congress is significant because it was one of the first times the colonists worked TOGETHER to get something done.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord-1775
We're starting the Revolutionary War!!
Who shot first?
The Boston Massacre was significant because of the way Paul Revere depicted it to make it seem like the British attacked the innocent colonists without provocation, which motivated people to join the rebel efforts.
The Battle of Bunker Hill-1775
Don't fire till you see the whites of their eyes!!
Take the hill, no matter what it takes!!
The Boston Tea Party is significant because it is a time the colonists took a stand against the British as one group instead of as separate colonies to achieve a common goal - the repeal of the Stamp Act.
Thomas Paines' book "Common Sense" published-1776
Finally!! Someone who'll publish my treasonous work!
The Battle of Lexington and Concord was significant because it was where the first shots of the Revolutionary War were shot, and where the rebels had their first victory.
The Battle of Bunker Hill is significant because the rebels worked so hard and killed so many British that day that they succeeded in working together towards the revolution.
Oh I'm a rebel all right.
The publishing of Thomas Paines' book "Common Sense" is important because when this book was published it became one of the most popular books in America and turned the minds of many loyalists to the rebels' side.
