ROAD TO REVOLUTION

PROCLAMATION LINE

DECLARED THAT THE COLONISTS COULD'NT SETTLE WEST OF THE APPALACHIANS. I THINK THAT THEY WERE ANGRY BECAUSE THEY FOUGHT FOR THE LAND AND COULD'NT CROSS IT.

SUGAR ACT

THIS LAW PLACED A TAX ON SUGAR MOLASSES AND OTHER PRODUCTS SHIPPED TO THE COLONIES. I THINK PEOPLE WERENT ANGRY BECAUSE THEY HAD TO PAY TAX FOR SUGAR ONLY IF THEY WANTED IT.

QUARTERING ACT

THIS ACT WAS PASSED UNDER THE COERCIVE ACTS. COLONISTS ARE REQUIRED TO HOUSE SOLDIERS, I PRETTY SURE THAT MOST OF THE COLONISTS ARE VERY ANGRY BECAUSE THEY HAD TO CARE FOR A SOLDIER AND MAYBE THEY DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY.

STAMP ACT

THIS LAW REQUIRED ALL LEGAL AND COMMERCIAL DOCUMENTS TO HAVE AN OFFICIAL STAMP SHOWING TAXES HAD BEEN PAID.THE COLONISTS MUST HAVE FELT FURIOUS BECAUSE THEY WERE BEING TAXED UNFAIRLY.

DECLARATORY ACT

THIS LAW STATES THAT PARLIAMENT HAS SUPREME AUTHORITY TO GOVERN THE COLONIES AND THAT THE ROYAL GOVERNOR CAN BAN TOWN MEETINGS. THE COLONISTS MUST HAVE BEEN FURIOUS BECAUSE SINCE THEY WERE BEING TAXED EVEN THOUGH PARLIAMENT STILL HAD FULL AUTHORITY.

TOWNSHEND ACT

THIS LAW WAS PASSED BY THE PARLIAMENT OF GREAT BRITAIN AND THIS LAW ALSO SUSPENDED NEW YORK'S ASSEMBLY UNTIL THE COLONISTS AGREED TO PROVIDE HOUSING FOR SOLDIERS. THE COLONISTS PROBABLY FELT THAT IT WASNT FAIR FOR THEM TO PAY THE TAX.

BOSTON MASSACRE

IT WAS AN ATTACK WHERE BRITISH SOLDIERS FIRED ON THE MOB AND KILLED FOUR LABORERS.THEY WERE VERY MAD BECAUSE THEY KILLED FOUR OF THE LABORERS.

TEA ACT

THE TEA ACT WAS AN ACT THAT FORCED COLONISTS TO BUY TEA FROM A EAST INDIA TEA COMPANY (AND TAXED THE TEA) THEY FELT ANGRY BECAUSE THEY WERE FORCED TO BUY TEA AND THEY WERE TAXED AS WELL

BOSTON TEA PARTY

IT WAS A RAID ON THREE BRITISH VOTES WHERE COLONISTS WERE DRESSED AS MOHAWK INDIANS AND THREW TEA OVER BOARD FIFTY MEN FROM THE SONS OF LIBERTY THREW THE TEA 90,000 POUNDS OF TEA WERE THROWN INTO THE SEA THE COLONISTS ENDED UP HAPPY BECAUSE THEY BASICALLY MADE THE BRITISH SEE A PIECE OF THEIR MIND.

INTOLERABLE ACTS

LAWS PASSED BY BRITISH PARLIAMENTS AFTER THE BOSTON TEA PARTY. THE LAWS WHERE MADE FOR THE COLONISTS SO THEY COULD PAY FOR ALL OF THE DESTROID TEA.
