Storyboard Text

  • Parliment Passes Tea Act
  • I think we should lower the price of tea so that the East India Company can ship tea more efficiently to other colonies.
  • Good idea, now no one will object to this rule.
  • Colonists Revolt
  • The price of tea went down, but now the East India Company has a monopoly.
  • Tea Imported To Boston
  • This ends here
  • The British Parliament passes down the Tea Act to subtract the price of tea to allow the East India Company to ship tea faster.
  • Tea Gets Dumped
  • The colonists revolted to this, saying that while the price of tea went down, the East India Company now gained total control of the market, leaving colonial merchants out of business, and some smuggling tea from other countries.
  • Fort Ticonderoga
  • After several failed imports to New York and other colonies, Governor Thomas Hutchinson wanted to make sure that tea would be imported to Boston. The Sons of Liberty begged to differ.
  • Fort Captured
  • Incredible, they surrendered their resources and we didn't even shoot yet.
  • Then one day, members of the Sons of Liberty boarded a ship importing tea to Boston, and dumped all the tea into the water. 342 cases of tea were lost, along with 90,000 pounds of tea worth thousands of dollars.
  • Fort Ticonderoga was a fort that controlled the main route to Canada, and it held a weapon crucial to the colonists, cannons. Ethan Allen was a blacksmith who led the group of colonists to take the fort.
  • Alright men, Fort Ticongdera has some valuable weapons we could use.
  • The Patriot group known as the Green Mountain Boys storm the fort and successfully take the weapons they need to give them the advantage.
