Cause Of The American Revolution
The Intolerable Acts Of 1774
Boston Harbor was closed after the Boston Tea party and it wont open back up until the ruined tea was paid for. The Intolerable Acts canceled the Massachusetts charter and the governor decide if and when they can meet. Another act called Quartering was required for all colonist to feed and shelter one or two of the soldier.
Lexington and Concord
70 armed minutemen waited for the British troops. "Don't fire unless fire upon" yelled John. A gun shot rang the earth and the battle began. 10 badly wounded and 8 dead minutemen laid on the field while only one British soldier was wounded. Still to this day nobody knows which side took the first shot.
