Storyboard Text

  • The Proclamation Act of 1763
  • The Stamp Act of 1765
  • The Townshend Acts of 1765-1767
  • The Proclomation of 1763 stated that all colonist were not allowed to expand their land without permission from the King of England. This angered the colonist because they thought that they shouldn't have to listen to England when it came to expanding land on the land that the colonist and the French own.
  • Boston Massacre of 1770
  • The stamp act was the act where you can only buy paper goods that had a stamp that proves that you bought the paper from the British. This angered the colonist because you had to pay a tax to get your papers stamp. If you had a job that relied on having paper, you would have to go in over your head to pay tax money.
  • Tea Act and Boston Tea Party of 1773
  • The Townshend Acts were acts that were developed by a former British treasury secretary who went by the name of Charles Townshend. One of these acts was "Quartering." This act stated that if a British soldier knocks on your door, you had to let them live with without any say in the matter. You also had to provide for the British soldiers. Another Act was Townshend duties. This forced them to pay "external taxes" for things like lead, paint, etc.
  • The Intolerable Acts of 1774
  • The Boston Massacre was not as exiting as it sounds. Over 50 colonist were at the scene for an argument about the British Private Hugh White being outside the custom house. British troops were then called over to help and maintain order. The colonist started tempting the British to shoot. Then some random guy threw something at a soldier, Private Montgomery and it knocked him down. Private Montgomery got mad and fired into the crowd. 5 colonist died. After that, 13 people were arrested. 8 British soldiers, 1 officer, and 4 civilians.
  • The Tea Act of 1773 was an act that prevented the colonist from buying tea from wherever the liked. They could only by from British companies in which there was only one. The East India Trading Company. This really angered the colonist causing them to protest and throw 342 chest of tea over board wasting many, many pounds. Sadly, this probably killed a lot of the fish in the ocean unbalancing their ecosystem. Poor fish.
  • As a follow-up to the Boston Tea Party, the British were angry and created the intolerable acts as a punishment to the colonist. This consisted of 5 acts that were passed down to them. The first one was the Boston Port Act. This was a direct punishment to the City of Boston blocking off all their ports. The second one was the Massachusetts Government Act. This changed Massachusetts and took away all power from the colonist and gave all the power to the British-appointed governor. The 3rd act was the Administration of Justice Act. This act gave the governors a lot of privileges that the colonist didn't get. The 4th act was Quartering again which was letting British soldiers in your house with no say.
