Storyboard Text

  • In order to raise money, Britain created the Townshend Acts in 1767 which taxed imported goods in the colonies. This angered many colonists, and they started imposing non-importation agreements.
  • Town- shend Acts
  • Since when do I have to pay a tax? That's not fair!
  • Woah were do you think you're going? You haven't paid the tax
  • The British created the Declaratory Act in 1766 which stated that they had control over the colonies, and made all the decisions on taxation.
  • Hooray! Britain repealed the Stamp Act!
  • But now they're enforcing the Declaratory Act, so everyone is still mad
  • Some of the colonists started to insult British soldiers and throw snowballs at them, so they called in for back up.
  • You guys suck! We hate you!
  • Help! They're forming a mob
  • The mob started to grow and some people started to throw sticks and stones at the soldiers. A few of the colonists started to get closer to the soldiers and taunt them, and then shots rang out. Several colonists were killed and injured.
  • We told you to stay back!
  • A few days after the massacre, John Adams received a letter asking him to defend the soldiers in court. He accepted the case because he believed that every man deserved right to a fair trial.
  • If you accept the case everyone will hate us!
  • It doesn't matter, its my duty to represent them
  • We're innocent, they attacked us first!
  • John Adams claimed that the soldiers acted out of self-defense. He ended up winning the trial, and the soldiers escaped the death penalty.
