The patriot's point of view
Letter to the patriots.
Dear patriots of the colonies,
We need to stop the British from taxing the colonies. We don't want to go to war but the people from England started shooting yesterday. We call it the Boston massacre because five colonists were killed. To show the British that they should abandon the horrid Tea Act, we threw 342 chests of tea overboard into the sea. We call it the Boston tea party. Today, we had our first Continental Congress to ask King George to stop the taxation. We already have a group of people ready to fight. We call them the Minute Men because they have to be ready in a minute.
The loyalist's point of view
Letter to the loyalists.
Dear loyalists of the colonies,
As you know, we are loyalists because we believe that Britain has the right to tax us. We will pay so we don’t go to war. It is hard to be a loyalist because the patriots are making King George mad. He is making laws to torture us called the Intolerable Acts. These laws make us give food and shelter to the British troops.
