Storyboard Text

  • The Intolerable Acts
  • Yes, these new laws are intolerable! I can't even have small town meetings anymore!
  • Hey, did you hear about those new laws? Apparently, they've closed the Boston harbor.
  • The 1st Continental Congress
  • Do you have any idea how powerless we are? Arguing with Britain would be pointless!
  • So? Are you saying we should just sit here and wait as Britain takes away our rights!?
  • Battles of Lexington and Concord
  • A series of extreme laws made by Britain to punish the colonies for the Boston Tea Party, the laws were given that name because of how unfair they were.
  • A meeting of 50 leaders, where they decided to ask the king of Britain to respect their rights. They also agreed to boycott all British goods until the intolerable acts were removed.
  • They were the battles between Britain and Americans, the battle of Lexington was a loss for the Americans, with 8 dead and 10 injured. The battle of Concord was a loss for Britain, as unexpected to the British soldiers, the American soldiers held their ground until the British ran away. The retreat to Boston was terrible for the British soldiers, as angry colonists were everywhere, shooting at every redcoat they saw.
