Storyboard Text

  • Stamp Act Congress of 1765
  • NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION! We understand that as British citizens we must pay taxes, however, British citizens on the mainland have representation in the Parliament!
  • Writs of Assistance
  • What are you doing in my house?! This is personal property you know!
  • I have the Writs of Assistance on my side! They allow me to invade on people's personal property for any reason.
  • 1773 Boston Tea Party
  • We the Sons of Liberty will show the British just what we think of this tea monopoly! 
  • The Stamp Act Congress of 1765 was a pivotal event during the Road to Revolution because it was the first time that the colonists had worked together and achieved their goal. Though the repeal of the Stamp Act was mainly because British merchants were not happy that the colonists weren't buying their goods, the colonists saw the true importance of unity.
  • Intolerable Acts of 1774
  • The Coercive/Intolerable Acts of 1774 Due to the colonists' uncalled for acts of violence, the British Parliament hereby prohibit the use of Boston Harbor as well as any town hall meetings.
  • Oh no!
  • The Writs of Assistance took away a significant part of the colonist's privacy, rights, and dignity because they gave British officials the chance to use abusive power. Dignity is a key part to survival, so much so that the need for it equals the need for food, water and shelter. Due to the loss of dignity, the Writs of Assistance were a significant event during the time leading up to the revolution.
  • June 1775 - Battle of Bunker Hill 
  • I am General Howell. No mud wall will stop me or my troops! No matter how many men we lose, Britain will win this war!
  • Aha! We have outsmarted the British at last!
  • The significance of the Boston Tea Party were the intentions of the Sons of Liberty, who dumped the tea due to the fact that the colonists no longer trusted the British enough to let them have a monopoly over the tea industry. This mistrust of the British also carried over into the thought that Britain no longer had the best interests of the colonists at heart causing people to want to rebel.
  • January 1776 - Common Sense 
  • We will dump all 342 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor! From now on, let this be known as the "Boston Tea Party"!
  • I didn't even do anything, and I'm getting punished! The British are punishing everybody for the actions of only the Sons of Liberty! 
  • Rather than only punishing the Sons of Liberty, the British's punishment affected everyone due to their trade with Boston and inability to hold town hall meetings, and though life isn't always fair, the colonists were aware that the British could have avoided these unacceptable punishments. These unjust consequences didn't setback the colonists, from the Intolerable Acts, they moved 5 steps forward on their journey to declaring independence.
  • No! Now that they have made an example of Boston, no one will rebel and Boston will be food-less! 
  • The Battle of Bunker Hill was a moral victory for the colonists, as the colonists were winning at one point, and only lost because they ran out of ammunition. This triumph raised the colonists' spirits by proving to themselves that this war was not a suicidal theory. Despite their loss, this battle showed them that their goal of independence and freedom was within reach, which caused them to keep fighting.
  • With the majority's support of the revolution, cooperation and unity were increased within the colonies, thus preparing them to become an independent nation. By doing this, Common Sense transformed the idea of a revolution into more of a reality. 
  • The Majority
  • Common Sense: A Pamphlet Explaining Why the Colonists Should Break from Britain: 1. Free colonies are better than unrepresented and unfairly treated colonies
