The Boston Massacre was a grouping of Boston residents gathering at a local customs house to show their anger about the taxes Parliment had recently called for upon the colonies. The colonists were saying bad things to the British soldiers guarding the building and eventually the British were tired of the insults and fired their guns into the crowd.
Stop insulting us or you will be shot and we will have a reason.
The Stamp Act was a tax on paper which caused the colonists to be furious. The Stamp act taxed colonists on everything that was used with paper. Every piece of paper has to be stamped before use.
Sir, you are going to have to pay for that letter before you mail it by the law of The Stamp Act.
You are depriving me of my freedom and enslaving me beneath a tyrannical regime
The Tea Act allowed the British East India Company to ship tea to the colonies for cheaper. The colonists didn't want the tea because the British were taxing too much. The colonists dumped 92,000 pounds of tea into the Boston Harbour as an act of revenge.
If you Britons keep imposing taxes on our daily items and things we need we will pour all of your tea and make your company lose money.
The Quartering act was an act that said that any soldier or British official could stay at a colonist's home and eat all their food and basically do anything legally.
I am going to stay at your house tonight and eat all of your food and you cant say no.
This isn't fair, you do not have the right to stay at our house.
The Boston Port act said that nobody could leave the harbor and nobody could come into the harbor until all the tea from the te party was cleaned up.
You men are not aloud to leave this harbour until all of the damage from the tea party is fixed.
The Administration of Justice Act said that if a British soldier or official did something wrong that they would go on trial in England, not Massachusettes. The trials went more towards the British in England.
will not serve my trial at this courthouse. We will serve a fair trial in England.
