WE ARE THE SONS OF LIBETRY!!
"BOSTON HARBOR A TEAPOT TONIGHT!"
After the French and Indian war, the colonies wanted to go into the land that they won but were stoped by Britain. Britain didn't want people to help the remaining French and indians who helped the french so they set up a line across the Appalachian Mountains. The line set a boundary for the colonies that the British didn't want colonists to cross.
These acts are intolerable! We should call them the Intolerable Acts!
The Boston Massacre was a shooting in Boston during a rebellion rally. The massacre happened after a British soldier shot his rifle into a crowd after being hit by a snow ball. By the end of it five civilians were dead.

THE REDCOATS ARE COMING!!!!
The Boston Tea Party was when lots of angry civilians decided to revolt when Britain taxed tea. Tea was a very common drink and was used by almost every colonist, so taxing something so popular plus a few other things angered the colonists. The colonist decided to dress up as Indians and through all the tea from a boat docked in Boston.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord
The Intolerable Acts which are formally known as the Coercive Acts were laws in response to the colonist dumping there tea. The laws were made to punish the colonists by shuting down the harbor (there main source of trade), they gave British officers authority to judge crimes, and even made soldiers live with them.
Coercive Acts You dumped our tea we dump your lives.
One day the British moved 700 men to capture weapons held in a town. The Sons of Liberty catch them and hang two lanterns on a church to signal Concord while riders try and gallop into town before the British. One man got there first and shouted through the night "The Redcoats are coming! The Redcoats are coming!" That man was Paul Revere.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord was when the minutemen and the British soldiers met for the first military engagement of the Revolutionary war. After suffering 8 losses the minutemen retreated, so the British barged in to Concord search for weapons. When they found the weaponry all the guns and gear were missing.
