Storyboard Text

  • Declaratory Act of 1766 (Causes)
  • Why must there be more tax and stricter laws. WHY?!?!
  • It wont be that bad, we can get through this together, don't you worry.
  • Declaratory Act of 1766 (Effects)
  • Im so fed up with the British parliament at this point!
  • Im so afraid of them, I don't want to get in trouble..
  • Tea Act of 1773 (Causes)
  • We need money to be bailed out. What can we do? I've got it, lets get revenue from the colonists tea trade business.
  • The Declaratory Act was introduced in 1766 when the British parliament decided that the tax in America should be the same as in Britain. Parliament had taxed the colonies before in the Stamp Act of 1765 but it was later repealed. This also caused the parliament to make laws on colonial people.
  • Tea Act of 1773 (Effects)
  • Enough is enough! Im going to put all their tea into the harbor! That'll serve them right!
  • After the series of events that had happened in the past couple years, colonists started to become angry/afraid of the parliament. The political maturity that had developed over time by the colonists which partly was in response to the parliaments unwritten policy of salutary neglect.  This soonly ended.
  • Conclusion
  • And here comes the war we were all expecting in the past years.
  • The Tea Act of 1773 was implemented because of the parliament wanting to pay off their debts, the way they tried to use the colonists for this was to use the money earned from the colonists by selling tea to traders and using that revenue to bail a company out. This lead to more conflict between the parliament and colonists.
  • Referencing
  • These are all the websites I used below.
  • As a result the colonists decided to climb aboard East India Company ships and dump all of their tea into the Boston harbor,. Because of this the British parliament inflicted a lot of harsh measures on the colonists.
  • As a result of these events colonial people and the British parliament became very angry at each other and 2 years later in 1775 the American Revolution began which lasted for 8 years (1783). This event was very life changing for America, and has been and will remain a very important part of US history.
