Road To Revolution

About the American Revolution

Introduction

Did you know that little events made the American Revolution War start? If not then I'm about to tell you in these next paragraphs. I will start in from the earliest event.

Sugar act

All the sugar was going to expire so taxes went up a lot. Another reason is it was to save money so they can spend more money on the military. Colonists protested but it didn't work. Stealing went down around the city because of this. King Charles III got a lot more money because of The Sugar Act. This took place in 1733

Boston Massacre

The Boston Massacre happened because Patriots(Colonists) protested because the taxes were too high. So they threw stuff at British soldiers. The soldiers started shooting Patriots and Patriots died and many were wounded. The government sent out most of their army to make them back off. The British government got really mad. This happened in 1770

Boston Tea Party

A few years after the Boston Massacre the Boston Tea Party happened. The Sons Of Liberty dressed up like Native Americans and threw all of the tea over board and it was all lost in the ocean. All that tea costed a LOT of money. Now the government got super mad and started the war. They lost over 18 million cups of tea. This took place in 1773

Minutemen

The Minutemen went around the U.S to warn colonists that the British is marching out of Boston. So everyone knew so colonists got prepared for them. They got their name from being able to react in minutes. They road on horses as fast as they good. Paul Revere was known as a Minutemen. This happened in 1774 right after the Sugar Act and that started a War also The Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party.
