6: Once everyone got to the meeting they started talking about some ways that they could break away from England.
7: Nobody could think of a way so Thomas told everyone to just wait until another day and then maybe they could think of something.
8: A few days later the kind decided to put a tax out on any sugar products. He said that they were in debt from the war they were in. That made all the colonist mad.
10: Thomas decided to go to George Washington's house. When George Washington answered the door Thomas asked him " what can we do to break away from the king?" George replied " I do not know. Maybe we can try to protest the sugar tax and then find out a way we can actually break away from him. Thomas thought that was a great idea. He went and told the people in the town and told them to meet the next day.
12: The day of the protest everyone showed up with signs that said liberty on them. They all stayed out there and protested until the king decided to take the tax back.
14: The colonist were all happy and thought they won over the king. But not too much longer after that, the king decided to put out the stamp tax.
15: That upset the colonist alot. They realized that they had to do something about the king. They needed to do it fast.
16: Thomas was sitting outside one day think of a way that they could do something about the king. Then his friend John Locke walked up to him and said " i got and idea. Lets wright a letter to the king saying that we do not want to be apart of his country anymore." Thomas thought it sounded like a good idea.
