  • No thanks
  • The Causes of the Revolution
  • Wilkins Coffee
  • What's next? Pop Tart Tax?
  • Quit taxin' us boi
  • The Quartering Act
  • 1000 lb. Wilkins Coffee $10.95
  • Pop Tarts
  • Zimbabwe
  • The Stamp Act
  •  You must pay a tax for ALL printed papers
  • As time went on, the Colonies and Britain began disagreeing over land and taxes.  When Britain and the colonists fought the French and some Native Americans in the French and Indian War, the British were left with a lot of debt.  Britain began taxing Americans more without actually giving American colonists a say, while the colonists had to give up a lot of things to help pay off Britain's debt.
  • Boston Massacre
  • The British forced the colonists to give soldiers shelter, food, water, supplies, and transportation.  They had to pay more to get extra supplies, and they got less of the supplies because the British soldiers used most of it.  Many soldiers were treated badly because the colonists did't want them in their homes.
  • Boston Tea Party
  • Wilkins
  • Just like the Quartering Act, the Stamp Act was passed to pay off some of Britain's  postwar debt.  The Stamp Act taxed all printed papers and documents, and this tax was widely unpopular.  Colonists were being charged more for everyday items that they needed.  
  •                                Intolerable Acts
  • Why can't we leave?
  • The darn British closed da harbor
  • After the Quartering and Stamp Acts, the colonists got madder than ever.  One night in Boston outside the Customs House (where the tax collectors worked), a crowd of colonists started throwing ice, snow, and rocks at the guard outside.  The nearby soldiers responded by shooting into the crowd, killing 5 people and wounding six more.  
  • Everyone hates you, British dudes!
  • After the Boston Massacre, the British repealed all unpopular taxes except the tax of tea.  In return, they passed an act that forced colonists to buy tea from the British East India company.  In response to that, the colonists dumped crates of tea into the Boston Harbor.  
  • S. S. Wilkins

  • Wilkins
  • S. S. Zimbabwe
  • As a punishment for the Boston Tea Party, the British passed the Intolerable Acts.  The Boston Port Act closed Boston Harbor.  Many workers lost their jobs.  Colonists sent supplies to Boston to help the people there.  Many tax collectors were tarred and feathered (like people who don't drink Wilkins Coffee).
