  • The 7 Years War
  • We won the 7 Years War, but we're in debt! What do we do?
  • I have an idea...
  • Rebellion Groups Form
  • This new Stamp Act is unacceptable!!
  • Yeah, we have to do something about it!...I know.
  • The Rise of the Stamp Act
  • WH-WHAT?!
  • Hello sir, I would like a set of playing cards for my 2 children.
  • That'll be $7, with $3 in tax, please.
  • This war was very important in American history, since it left Britian in debt after the war was over. With that in mind, Britian decided to pay taxes to keep an army in the Colonies. Little do they know what's coming...
  • Protesting Against the British
  • Would you like to purchase a set of playing cards from us Britiish?
  • ABSOLUTELY NOT, IF THE WAY YOU TREAT US COLONISTS WILL STAY THE SAME!
  • The Stamp Act angered the Colonists, so they decided to make rebellion groups. Two of the most important ones were the Sons and Daughters of Liberty and the Committees of Correspondance.
  • The Declaration of Independance was Signed!
  • We need freedom from the British, and in order to do that, Mr. Jefferson has written this document. Those in favour?
  • In order to keep an army in the Colonies, Britian decided to pass the Stamp Act. This put a tax on every piece of paper in the Colonies, including letters, documents, and even playing cards!
  • The Revolutionary War Begins!
  • The Stamp Act caused many people to protest against the British. Examples of ways that they protested were refusing to buy any paper (boycotting), and using violence to threaten the British.
  • After many other Acts were passed, such as the Tea Act and Intolerable Acts, the Colonists demanded freedom from Britian. This was done by writing and signing a document known as the Declaration of Independance.
  • The British refused to let the Colonists have their freedom, so the 2 nations broke out in a war. The war began in Lexington, where the shot heard around the world was fired.
