  • Growing Tensions Between the Colonies and Britain
  • The Quartering Act
  • We are staying here.
  • The Stamp Act
  • You have to pay your taxes
  • On 10.1, page 103, "During the 1750s and 1760s, Britain and the colonists fought against the French in the French and Indian War. The war left Britain with huge debts. To solve its problems, the British government passed a number of laws. Some of these ordered the colonists to pay new taxes. The colonists became angry because they had no representatives in the British government to vote on these laws.  Many colonists began to protest against British rule.
  • The Boston Massacre
  • Don't fire!
  • Ok, we'll fire.
  • On 10.4, page 106, titled "The Quartering Act", "The Quartering Act ordered colonists to provide "quarters" (places to live) for British soldiers."
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • Ok, boss.
  • On 10.5, page 106-107, titled "The Stamp Act", "The Stamp Act said that the colonists would have to pay a tax on printed papers. To prove that the tax was paid, almost every piece of printed paper would have to show a large blue stamp."
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • On 10.6, page 106, titled "The Boston Massacre" "On March 5, 1770, a soldier was standing guard in front of the Customs House. A crowd began to gather. People in the crowd called the soldier names. Some of them threw stones and snowballs. The Captain and seven other soldiers hurried to the guard's side. Loading their muskets, they stood in front of the angry crowd. The Captain told his soldiers not to fire their guns. One soldier said that he heard the command "Fire!" and so shot his gun into the crowd. Within moments, five people lay dead or dying. Six more were wounded. 
  • He later realized he misheard the command
  • On 10.7, page 110, titled "The Boston Tea Party", "the British government repealed all of the unpopular taxes on the colonists, except the tax on tea. The colonists loved tea, but many of them refused to buy it from Britain. As a result, the largest British tea company was losing a great deal of money. On December 16, 1773, a group of men climbed aboard the tea ships in the Boston Harbor. There, they split open hundreds of boxes and dumped 90,000 pounds of loose tea into the water.
  • We're just here for the tea, boys!
  • On 10.8, page 111, "After The Boston Tea Party, Parliament decided to punish the colonists by passing several new laws. In September 1774, leaders from 12 colonies gathered in Philadelphia to discuss the problems with Britain. The angry delegates agreed to fight the laws called Intolerable Acts."
