  • FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR - 1754-1763
  •  STAMP ACT - 1765
  • No! As long as we have to buy stamps, we will never buy paper from you!
  • Paper, buy your paper. But remember, you also have to buy a stamp!
  • This war is very important to the creation of the Declaration of Independence because this was the war that caused Britain a lot of debt. To pay off this debt, Britain will unfairly tax the Colonies and they will want to be free of Britain.
  • To help pay off war debts, Britain passed the  Stamp Act. The Colonies were not happy with this, so they created the Stamp Act Congress and boycotted British goods. This is important because it was the first time all of the Colonies worked together. The Colonies coordianted action caused the British to repeal the act.
  • You have to make some food for us too. And where are our beds!
  • SOOO unfair!
  • The Boston Massacre happened when a group of angry colonists began throwing snowballs at one of the British government buildings that was being guarded by British soldiers. One snowball hit a soldier and he began to shoot his gun. Ten colonists died. This event infuriated the colonists and they began to violently revolt against the British.
  • At the Boston Tea Party, Colonists dressed up as Native Americans and threw tea into the Boston Harbor in protest against the new Tea Act passed by the British. The Colonies believed that this act was unfair because it was Taxation without Representation (they did not get a say in what happened). This was another example of the Colonies joining to defy Britain and wanting freedom.
  • The Quartering Act was passed as one of the Untolerable Acts, acts that no body could stand. It forced civlian Colonists to house and feed British soldiers. This caused the Colonies to resent Britain EVEN MORE and led to the creation of the first continental congress
  • After Paul Revere rode through the streets of Lexington warning the people that the British were coming, they all prepared for the soldiers arrival with anything that they could find. When the soldiers came the next morning, they were ready with rakes and pitchforks. When the British got to Lexington, a battle broke out. The first gunshot of he Revolutionary War was fired and the Colonies officially began fighting for their freedom.
