  • The French and Indian war was a dispute between the  British and the French about all the territory west  of the Appalachian Mountains. In the Beginning, the British felt like the  French were invading their property since many were staying near if not in the British claimed 13 Colonies. Since Britain was feeling threatened, they declared war on the French, who's allies were the native american tribes living in the area
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • In 1765, King George III put a tax on any legal documents, diplomas, contracts, and even playing cards.  This act intensified the Colonists, and was when the Sons of Liberty were born. They organized protests, tarred and feathered tax collectors, and arranged huge bon fires where paper and books were burned.  Since these men were so eager to become a separate country from Britain, they contributed greatly towards the call for independence.
  • Lexington and Concord
  • In March, 1770, a mob started to form in front of the old Boston State house where 8 British soldiers were guarding the entrance. Many started to get angry , even enraged when the soldiers would not let them pass,  so they threw stones, words, and snowballs with rocks at them. The Soldiers then fired on the crowd, leaving 5 dead. When the colonists heard about this incident,  and saw the famous etching by Paul Revere, the call for independence only grew louder
  • The Declaration of Independence
  • We the people of the United States...
  • The Boston Tea Party was a result of the Tea Act of 1773. Parliament had put a tax on tea, and the Colonists decided to take matters into their own hands. They boarded a British ship that carried chests of tea, and when instructed, they threw the tea overboard, letting it sink to the bottom of Boston Harbor. The patriots were trying to send a message, one that was loud and clear, to King George, one that said, "No more shenanigans."
  • Throw the tea overboard!
  • No taxation with out representation!
  • The battle of Lexington and Concord was the first skirmish of the Revolutionary War. The American Militias had stored some weapons in a barn just in case war broke out, and the British had come to retrieve them. The Colonists got on their horses and set out for battle. The Militia was able to make the British troops retreat, and their small victory gave the others hope that they would be able to win a war.
  • The British are coming! Guard the weapons!
  • The Declaration of Independence is one of the United States' most treasured documents, and for good reason. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, one Of America's founding fathers
