  • To what extent were the causes and effects of events all leading up to the American Revolution.
  • Causes/Effects that lead to the American Revolution
  • Today I will be speaking about the causes and effects that all lead up to the American Revolution
  • The Currency Act of 1764 (Causes)
  • All my money is now useless. Why did they have to ban my colonial paper money?!
  • I know! Im so annoyed!
  • The Currency Act of 1764 (Effects)
  • Can I trade you my old money for new money?
  • No your old colonial money is useless to me. I will not trade.
  • The 4 events I will be talking about are the the Stamp Act 1765, Declaratory Act of 1766, Tea act of 1773, and the Currency Acts of 1764.
  • The Stamp Act 1765 (Cause)
  • Im so far in debt! What do I do? I know let me use the colonists for their money to pay of debt!
  • The Currency Act was implemented on September 1st in 1764 because British law banned the origin of coins and the issue of official government money in America. The act banned all colonial paper money. It stopped the extension of paper bills beyond its redemption date.
  • Stamp Act 1765 (Effects)
  • Why do we have to pay for their debt! Its theirs not ours!!
  • The colonial people suffered a shortage of currency which would help with trade. Since there were no gold or silver mines, currency could only be obtained through trade as regulated by the British. All currency had to be reissued and new bills were made. The new notes were issued by banks, as a result many British merchants felt very uncomfortable with this new Act.
  • Conclusion
  • The Stamp Act was put into play on March 22 1765, when the British and Indian war ended, the British were deeply in debt from sending troops to fight. So the British decided to use the colonists money to pay back for the troops with tax. Everything made with paper in America had to be stamped before it was bought or sold.
  • No No No please No. We didn't do anything you pay it yourself.
  • As a result the colonists became very mad by this new tax law introduced and they believed they deserved the same rights as the British did. 9 colonists send representatives to the Stamp Act congress to ask the parliament to repeal their tax. The sons of liberty encouraged colonists defy the Stamp Act. 
  • I know, we are going to lose so much money.
  • In result of these 2 events the colonists became very mad about the parliaments decisions getting closer to a protest or even a violent event. At this moment in history the colonists were very mad but no violent act has emerged yet.
  • Things are starting to get conflicted between these people.
