  • Inching our way to  Independence 
  • The Boston Massacre
  • The Boston massacre was an illegal shooting by the British soldiers.  10 people were injured and 5 were killed.
  • How come they do things like this, and don't get in trouble? If we did anything like this, we'd be killed! This is outrageous! THIS MEANS WAR!!!
  • The Stamp Act is ruining my business! Sales have gone down by 28%, THIS MEANS WAR!!!
  • Why is this so expensive?! I can't pay for this! Don't deliver again.
  • I'm sorry, the government is putting heavy taxes on stamps, newspapers, decks of cards, and more. There isn't anything I can do. Hopefully it will be over soon!
  • The Stamp Act
  • The Quartering Act made the British soldiers stay in colonists houses to protect them. But, many soldiers would take food, money, and other possessions from the colonists. Finally, they had enough!
  • Ha ha ha! This is too easy. Being forced to stay here by the government is the best this that ever happened to me! Those fools!
  • The Quartering Act
  • Oh no! I've been caught! I knew I should've been more sneaky!
  • Stop that! You've been taking our belongings for too long. I've had enough! THIS MEANS WAR!!!
  • The rebellion against the British was formed by an accumulation of events. The Boston Tea Party was a rebellion against the new laws and taxes, as were the other rebellions. The ships were carrying tea, and they knew how important tea was to the British, so they threw the tea from the ships overboard. The intolerable acts were laws that were just too unfair. This was the last act before the Revolutionary war, and it was just the final touch to the anger of both sides.
