I can't stand it John... their laws and policies are becoming too strict
The sugar tax, stamp tax, what else do the Brits want to make us pay for??
John, Mary, come quickly! Parliament has posted an announcement!
Colonists gather around the town square, they cannot believe their eyes. Parliament had believed by enforcing this law that it would improve things, but ultimately, it just angered the colonists even more. This was the last straw.
TAX ON TEA - 3d per lb
If they want to tax our tea then so be it... we will not stand for it, we shall meet at the harbor in a fortnight
Should we bestow a name upon our group? Something to do with Liberty?
The colonists gather at the harbor and throw crates of tea into the water!
By then, they had started calling themselves 'The Sons of Liberty'
Later on, this event had been labeled 'The Boston Tea Party'
You've gotten on our last nerve Redcoat! we will fight for what we deserve if we have to! You ailed us then and you ail us now, this violates our right as British citizens, citizens that we wish to be no more!
What are you doing! You will pay for what you have done!
