That's our problem, not yours, and the colonies are well worth it.
You, French, will never win this war. Even if you won the first couple of battles, we will win this war. Our colonists need your land to expand. You don't even have colonists that live there, so you don't even need the land.
We have claimed that land and it belongs to the French. This war is going to cost you a lot of money that you don't have. I don't know what you're going to do when Wiliam Pitt's money runs out.
The Stamp Act- 1765
I don't think it's fair to be taxed for a war be didn't fight in. Parliament is pushing us around like babies, they think they can tax us for everything, but we need a say. I say NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!! We must also boycott British goods. All in favor, say Aye!
Boston Tea Party- December 16, 1773
I need to smuggle some tea so it isn't taxed.
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
We dressed up like native Americans to protest the Tea Act.
Remember men, only the tea.
If my calculations are right we have dumped 342 crates of tea.
The French and Indian War was important to the Declaration of Independence because the end of the war brought the beginning of taxes on the colonist, which led to the Stamp Act Congress.
First Continental Congress- 1774
If things don't get better we need to meet again.
We need to respond to the Intoretable Act and Boston Harbor. We can't trade if our Harbor is closed.
Why don't these people agree with the King?
Ok, we will sign it, but the King will never respond.
The Stamp Act Congress was the first time the colonies took a stand against the heavy taxes by sending a letter to King George.
Second Continental Congress- 1775
I think we should send another letter to King George and tell him that we are loyal British and we don't want war. We can call our letter the Olive Branch Petition and we can tell the King that Lexington and Congress was just an accident.
The Boston Tea Party was one of the first big protests that the colonist made against the British.
Common Sence- January 1776
Common Sense was a huge success in the colonies that now we have enough support from the people to send the Declaration of Independence.
The First Continental Congress was the first time the colonies came together and helped one another as a nation.
Yes, and that is why we are all here. We don't want this to happen to us, so we are going to help you.
I think we should send a letter to King George and tell him to end the intoleratable Act and reopen Boston Harbor!
The Second Continental Congress led to the start of the Continental Army which started an even larger rebellion.
In return for signing the letter, we should start a Continental Army. In case that another skirmish like Bunker Hill happens again.
Deal! We should put George Washington in charge as General.
Common Sense changed the opinions of lots of colonists which brought to the Declaration of Independence.
I'm Tomas Paine, and I wrote the simple pamphlet called Common Sense, that challenged the way the colonists thought of the British Monarchy. I used simple language and simple words that changed the opinions of many of the colonists. After Common Sense was released, so many colonists started to support the revolution that Congress sent the Declaration of Independence to King George in England.
