Stamp Act

There once was a thing called the Stamp Act in 1765. If you bought something that was paper you had to buy a stamp to have it.


The king started it because of the Boston Tea Party. So he got mad at the colonist who threw the tea over board.

He also did it to the people who did not throw it over board. There lots of colonist protested too and made the king a lot more mad.

Boston Massacre

Interviewer: So, living close to where the massacre took place, what did you think about it?


Patriot: Well, actually, I don't think that we did anything wrong.


Interviewer: How so?


Patriot: Well, we only threw a few snowballs, and spoke our minds about their occupation here. We didn't think they'd open fire on us!


Interviewer: It sounds like you have a strong opinion over this topic.


Patriot: Of course! This is madness! Why can’t King George III get it trough his head that we want to be left alone!? I mean, we just want independance! Patrick Henry said it best; “Give me liberty, Or give me death!”.


Interviewer: I agree that this war is a course of action that we must take if we are to become independent.

Advise Column

COLONIST

Dear Mackenzee,

The king has taxed all of are goods, and I can't get a single item without spending half my money, they have taxed wool, glass, paint, lead, and paper. Do you have any advise for how me and the Colonists to how we can get rid of the taxes or at least lower them?



Dear Colonist,

The advise I have for you today is that if the king is taking you're guys money like this than you guys should put a stop to it so I have a few ideas.

1. Boycott all of the taxed items.

2. There is a boat that has all the British tea in it so one day gather up the colonists that are against the taxes and go to that boat at midnight and thrown the tea off the boat.

Well have fun, and I hoped this helped.

From: Mackenzee R.
