Storyboard Text

  • Effects: The Stamp Act resulted in the introduction of colonial boycotts of British imported goods which led to the eventual repealing of the tax by British Parliament. The famous slogan 'No Taxation without Representation' stemmed from the introduction of this tax, which many Americans saw to be an invasion of their civil rights as citizens of England. The fact that the tax was repealed showed the American people that it was possible for them to oppose British rule peacefully, and get results. Although this idea of peaceful opposition was largely dropped after the Boston Massacre when the British set the grounds for violent conflict in the colonies.
  • I guess I will have to pay
  • Thank you for following the rules
  • Causes: The intolerable acts was when the king of England want to react to the colonist Boston tea party. So he made the intolerable avoid the tax and its political implications altogether by buying smuggled Dutch tea. In an effort to entice Americans to buy surpluses of British tea, the British Parliament passed the Tea Act in 1773.
  • Intolerable Acts
  • Effects: Almost all of the government positions were to be appointed by the British and were under the seal of Great Britain. The Administration of Justice Act allowed the Governor of Massachusetts to transfer trials to Great Britain. The Boston Port Act closed the port until damages for the Boston Tea Party were paid back to Great Britain. This hurt Boston economically. Other colonies supported them in protest.  Boston wanted all the colonies to boycott British goods. 
  • Causes: In 1767, Parliament introduced the Townshend Acts in the American colonies to cover the expenses of running the colonial government. From 1756 to 1763, the British government had incurred major financial debts during the Seven Years' War, and earlier efforts to regain those funds failed when the Stamp Act caused a colonial revolt and was repealed. British legislators also believed an indirect tax would be better received than another direct tax.
  • Townshend Act
  • Effects: The Townshend Acts were named after Charles Townshend, chancellor of the Exchequer (head of Britain’s treasury). Townshend introduced the four acts, and Parliament passed them in June and July 1767.The first act was aimed at the New York Assembly. The assembly had refused to pay for the food, drink, housing, and transportation of British soldiers in New York.
