  • Proclamation act
  • The Stamp act of 1765
  • The Townshend Act 
  • The Proclamation Act of 1763 forbid settlers to go beyond the Appalachian Mountains. This however failed because there were not any Britain soldiers to police the area; so the settlers continued to swarm the across the boundary and began to claim land  farther into the Ohio river valley. 
  • The Boston Massacre 
  • The colonists had to pay taxes for paper goods; such as newspapers, Magazines, and legal documents. The only way to prove that you payed taxes was that the paper had to  have the British stamp.The tax angered the colonist since they felt that they couldn't be taxed without their consent. 
  • The Tea Act and Boston Tea Party
  • The Townshend Acts  Quartering Act was when soldiers went knocking on the colonists' homes the colonist had to give them whatever they asked for and they had to provide them quarters to sleep. It wasn't the quartering that angered the colonist the most it was that they had to give them supplies.
  • The Intolerable Act
  • The Boston Massacre started when colonists had an argument with British private Hugh White; while outside the custom house. The argument then escalated when more people showed up and started throwing things. Over 50 colonists showed up and soon British troops began showing up to maintain order. Then, someone from the crowd threw  an item at Private Montgomery; this lead to him shooting into the crowd.The governor showed and 13 people were arrested.
  • Since Great Britain taxed tea and the only way was to get tea from East India Trading Company the tea was expensive. The sons of liberty dressed up as Indians and threw 342 chests of tea into the Boston harbor because they didn't want to pay; however the British knew it was the colonists.
  • The Intolerable Acts were set in motion after the Boston Tea Party. The acts stated that the Boston port is closed, people accused of crimes had to go to England to get tried, it was now forced to quarter troops, and it reduced their self government autonomy.
