U.S. American Revolution
By: Natalie Wendorf
Samuel helped organize the Sugar Act and Boston Tea Party. A quote was said by him: "We will destroy every soldier that dare put his foot on shore... I look upon them as foreign enemies." He was important by standing up for people when taxes were collected which made him a problem solver. Samuel wanted to tell others what was wrong with the British policy and taxation. Qualities he had were great speaking and writing. Another quote was: "It does not require a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." This was everything about Samuel Adams.
Boston Tea Party
This event took place on December 16th, 1773. The Boston Tea Party happened two years before the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere was an important person to this event in history. Consequences that happened because of this event were that the Tea Act forced colonists to only buy tea from the East India Company. Many of the colonists were mad about new taxes and didn't like how the Parliament prevented the start of a new life. Lastly, they didn't like that they couldn't trade because of the harbor being closed.
Important people that were involved with this event was Patrick Henry which was a part of the House of Burgesses and King George the third. The consequences were angry and disagreeing people. Along with causing a threat to political freedom which is doing what you want to do.
Once the boycotts spread in the colonies, more people got involved with politics. These are groups like the Daughters of Liberty. The key people involved with boycotting were William Pitt who agreed the Stamp Act should end. Also, Patrick Henry was active in getting colonists to boycott goods. Now for the consequences of boycotts; Parliament and colonies started fighting. The Parliament could control the colonies once the Declaratory Act started. Great Britain and the colonies weren't getting along and chose to fight for freedom. Finally, the British got mad because their products weren't being sold. This is everything about boycotting.
Daughters of Liberty
The Daughters of Liberty were a cooperation because everyone got together and everyone had to do their part to be successful. They also worked together and believed in the same idea and similar opinions. This continued until the Revolutionary War started and were highly involved with politics. This was a very important group in the colonies. They took goods from store owners who charged more once the harbor closed. Once people heard about boycotts and started getting into politics, and protesting, people disagreed with one another.
Daughters of Liberty had an impact on the British for the following reasons. They were hoping to change policies and taxes from Britain. This group got larger for boycotted goods. This forced American colonists to help out American businesses and not Britain's. The war started because fewer people were buying products from Britain. This is everything about the Daughters of Liberty.
