The Boston Tea Party-December 16th, 1773
THROW IT OVERBOARD ALL 342 CRATES!
The Sugar Act was the first major tax, the sugar tax made sugar cost more because it was a popular thing to buy. It's popularity was so high because the Colonists needed it for their tea, which they drank a lot, so the King taxed it to pay the war debt.
The Battle of Bunker Hill- June 1775
THIS MEANS WAR! FIRE!!!
The Stamp Act is where anything made from paper such as playing cards, newspaper, birth and marriage certificate, which needed a stamp on it, which cost money. The Stamp Act Congress was a group of colonists that decided to make the petition, "No Taxation Without Representation" so the colonists didn't want tax without having a representative at the meetings to make taxes. Since, the petition didn't work, they decided to boycott british goods, the only reason the king gave in was from the boycotting.
Common Sense- Jan. 1776
The Boston Tea Party was on December 16th, 1773. Colonists tried to dress up as Indigenous People and they dumped 342 boxes of tea into the harbor. They did it because they were so mad about the taxes they did a rebelious act out of anger.
The Battle of Bunker Hill was in June 1775. The famous quote from Willam Prescott was" Don't fire til you see the whites of their eyes." meaning, don't fire too early, so they don't give themselves away. The battle's victor was the British but the Maericans didn't give up.
Common Sense was a panflip written by Thomas Paine and was very popular. It was 47 pages and taught people how to do a revolution.
