TOE (Taxes on Everything): Samantha Bertioncino


Great Britain was in deep debt so they started putting taxes on items. The stamp act was okay-ed in 1765. The stamps were put on things like legal documents, newspaper, and playing cards. Whenever a colonist bought an item like this they would have to buy a stamp to put on the item. When the colonist heard this they were furious. The colonist didn’t have representatives so they thought that Great Britain couldn't tax them.

Spoiled Tea: Samuel Eberheart

I wish that Great Britain would just punish all of the people who oppose Great Britain for all they've done. I wish that I could get some of my tea even if I had to pay a tax. Just make sure that the opposing people get taught a lesson.

Rebals By: Kian Shafe

As the fight for Freedom went on we again showed Great Britain what we have to do for our Freedom. As the Son’s of Liberty boarded the ship and threw away all the tea I was full of Joy. Seeing people actually fight against Great Britain was heartwarming. I knew that this was going to be the last straw for Great Britain. They would soon be starting a war against us, and I was ready to fight for my Freedom.

The Father's of our Country: Mateo Zamora

The Declaration of Independence was written July 4, 1776. This document was written by Thomas Jefferson and John Adams and Benjamin Franklin edited the Declaration. The whole writing piece was for the king of Great Britain, King George III. The point for the Declaration of Independence was that the colonists had rights and that they were their own country and that Great Britain had no rights to boss them around and give them taxes on them. It also states that all men are created equal. This is what started our country.
