The proclamation of 1763 The proclamation of 1763 was signed on October 7th by King George III. This is what prohibited the Americans from going to Appalachia. This also marked the end of the French and Indian war.
The Stamp Act The stamp act took place in 1765. It was an act of the parliament of Great Britain. This is an imposed tax on the thirteen colonies. This tax states that all paper printed products need a stamp on it with extra tax because of the stamp. This taxed the colonizers a lot of money.
The Quartering Acts The quartering acts refer to 2 different acts by the British parliament. The quartering acts refer to the housing of British soldiers by the Americans. The second part of the quartering acts was the feeding of the British soldiers.
The Boston Massacre The Boston Massacre was an incident on king street where no one not a hundred not a thousand people were killed but 5 people were killed. This event happened on March 5, 1770, when colonizers were protesting and the British killed 5 in the mob.
The Boston Tea Party The Boston Tea party was an event that was another protest. The protest was caused by the sons of liberty. They dressed up as Tomahawk Indians and threw tea crates off a boat. The event took place on December 16, 1773.
The Intolerable Acts The intolerable acts took place directly after the Boston tea party.They took place because King George III was angry with what the Americans did.This law punished the Americans by taxing them to pay for all the tea that was lost.
Lexington and Concord Lexington and Concord was the first official battle of the revolutionary war. The battles were fought within the towns of Lexington and Concord hence the name. The battles took place on April 19, 1775.
Now This is where we are now. 243 years after the events of Lexington and Concord. A free country, a noble country who has lost lives in many attacks, and a brave country who has gone and taken revenge on the people who attacked us.
The French and Indian war The French and Indian war took place from 1756-1763. The French and Indian war took place because France wanted America but so did Britain. The reason it’s called the French and Indian war is that the Native Indians assisted the British to get a victory.
The Townshend Acts The Townshend acts are actually not one but multiple acts put in to place by, guess who, the Britsh. They were passed in 1767 and 1768. The reason they are called the Townshend acts is because the chancellor of Britain passed them so they named it after him.
The First Continental Congress The First Continental Congress was not an official Congress. The first continental congress was a meeting of delegates from 12 of the 13 colonies. This took place from September 5 to October 26 in 1774. The meeting was held at Carpenters Hall.
