  • We want the land!!!
  • WAR!
  • No, we want the land!!!
  • Sugar Act (1764)
  • Candy used to be 3 coins!
  • I can't afford these expensive taxes!
  • Sweets Now five coins.
  • Boston Massacre (1770)
  • If you have a problem with that then take it up with King George III
  • Our territory, our rules.
  • The French and Indian War was a battle between the French, British and Native Americans who were fighting on both sides. The reason of the war was that both sides wanted the land east of the Mississippi River. When the British won the war they got more power, but because of war expenses, they had to start taxing the colonists led to a lot problems.
  • Tea Act (1773)
  • Tea is now 7 coins 
  • When the Sugar Act was installed the colonists were annoyed with the British for taxing their sweets. They didn't want to have a tax on their alcohol, molasses, and sugar, this was the stuff that they liked to eat and drink and this started to irritate them. But that was just the beginning, soon there would be arguments and fights over the outrageous taxes that the Brtish would soon give to the colonists.
  • Boston Tea Party (1773)
  • The British can't tax our tea if they don't have any tea to tax!
  • The Boston Massacre was significant because it showed how the Patriots could hold their own without the help of the British. The sketch of the British overtaking the colonists that Paul Revere had drawn just built up more drama. That drawing is what made the colonists mad, at first they were annoyed with the sugar act, but now they were angry.
  • Declaration of Independence (1776)
  • Okay, then we must go to war with the British army to claim our independence.
  • All in favor of declaring the independence of the thirteen colonies, say "aye".
  • AYE.
  • The significance of the Tea Act was that that was the colonists were tired of being overtaxed by the British. This was the final straw, by overtaxing the colonists for tea, that just built up more anger inside of them, which led to a war.
  • Seriously!?! Now there are taxes on tea???
  • The British are gonna regret overtaxing us on our tea, sweets and legal documents!
  • The Boston Tea Party was significant because the colonists were done putting up with the British constantly taxing them for the money that they needed to pay their soldiers. This led to Lexington and Concord which gave the colonists the courage to sign the Declaration of Independence and go to war with the British army.
  • They tax our tea, we pour it into the harbor!
  • The significance of the Declaration of Independence was that the Patriots informed the British that they were tired of the taxes being given to them and that they didn't need to be "kept safe" anymore. They colonists finally had the courage to do something more than protest. They were ready to fight for their freedom.
  • I choose not to vote.
