Storyboard Text

  • Well actually your king gave us this land and also this benefits everyone because now we all have an equal amount of land and now the death rate for both us and you has lowered.
  • We fought to be able to have the land west of the Appalachian Mts. and now we can't settle in it but you can?!
  • No it isn't because it is allowing us to assist Mother England. All this tax money is going to be used to pay off the large debt from the French and Indian War. We took place in it and should help pay.
  • This stamp act is a violation of our rights as British citizens. We should have some form of representation in the Parliament if we are going to be taxed. NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
  • I am not paying for you to live in my house! We are in a time of peace so why do we need you? All you're going to do is take up space. Also it costs a lot of money to furnish a house with everything they require and it is as much of a ploy to get us to pay taxes as the Stamp Act!
  • It is required by law for you to provide me with housing. Also this benefits you because now you won't have to wait a few weeks for us to help fight against any threats. So technically paying for us to stay here ensures your safety.
  • The Proclamation of 1763 was when King George the III proclaimed that they shall draw an invisible line down the Appalachian mts. to separate the colonists and the Native Americans to the west and east. This proclamation was proclaimed in 1763.
  • No it wasn't! We just gave you 90,000 pounds of tea for free!
  • This Tea Act was just another one of your ploys to get us to pay taxes.
  • The Stamp Act was when Prime Minister George Grenville figured that the Americans should pay for the protection that was provided so he said that they would have to buy a stamp for every piece of paper including legal documents, newspapers, licenses, and playing cards. This act was created in 1765.
  • You just killed one of your own citizens. That proves that British soldiers aren't needed and that they pose a threat to the colonists' well being.
  • What?! You guys attacked first! If this proves anything it is that we are needed to keep the peace!
  • POW
  • These Intolerable Acts were created for no reason. We are not going to pay for the lost tea and Britain is blaming us so that they have an excuse to take firm control of the colonies!
  • The Quartering Act was created to order colonial assemblies to give British troops housing and furnish it with bedding, firing, cooking utensils, salt, vinegar, and beer or cider. This act was created in 1765.
  • We dumped 90,000 pounds of tea into the ocean! We cost mother England a lot of money. We should pay for the tea and suffer the consequences.
  • The Boston Tea Party was when the Sons of Liberty dressed up as Mohawk Indians and dumped 90,000 pounds of teas into the ocean. This occurred on the night of 12/16/1773 at the Boston Harbor.
  • The Boston Massacre was a riot which was in response to the taxation situation. Colonists attacked the soldiers with ice balls and soldiers were scared so they shot into the crowd. Five colonists died and other were injured. The Boston Massacre occurred on March 5, 1770.
  • The Intolerable Acts were created after the Boston Tea Party. These acts were made to punish the citizens of Massachusetts for dumping the tea. They closed off the harbor, they sent more soldiers to enforce the laws, made sure that any government officials accused of a crime were tried in England. These were created in 1774.
