Storyboard Text

  • Long, long ago there were colonies on the East side of what is now known as the US.
  • A colony is an area that is controlled by another country.
  • European's wanted to take over more land so they could be more powerful.
  • Europe taxing the colonists caused an uproar of protest to begin within the 13 colonies. The colonists didn't want to pay taxes without having a chance of representation.
  • Unfortunately, controlling more land means that you need more soldiers which later caused Europe to tax the colonists, and the colonists were not happy about it.
  • The colonists started to say a phrase,"No taxation without representation." This means that the colonists would not pay their taxes unless they get a chance of having someone represent them in the Parliment.
  • One night as a soldier walked by, a colonist shouted and pointed at the soldier and said that he hadn't paid for doing his hair. (Back then, that was a serious thing) So colonists formed a mob around a group of soldiers and started to shout and argue with them. This made one of the soldiers to accidentally open fire injuring about 10 colonists. Some eventually died.
  • Later, the Boston Tea Party occurred where Colonists dressed as Indians boarded three British tea ships and dumped the tea overboard into the water. 
  • This caused a war between the Colonists and the British. The colonists wanted to be free and the British wanted to control more land. So they had a war.
