BC: The Birth of America

FC: Road to the Revolutionary War By: period 3


2: On the seventh of October, King George the third released the royal proclamation of 1763. | THE PROCLAMATION OF 1763

3: The Proclamation of 1763 was created by the British government to help American settlers be safe from attacks from the Native Americans. | Although many people from the British government had a desire to protect the land rights of the Native Americans, their main intention was to evade more expensive Indian Wars. The Proclamation was a very important cause of the American Revolution.

4: FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR DEBT. The French and Indian War lasted from 1754 to 1763. The French fought the English for control of land in North America. Eventually, the English won. The colonial reaction of the French and Indian War was that they though it was a waste because taxes were raised on the colonists to help pay for the French and Indian War.

5: England raised taxes on the colonists to pay off the debt after the war. Guns, food, horses, medical care, etc, all caused debt because of the war. The increased taxes made the colonists very angry.

6: The Sugar Act! =)

7: In 1764 the colonists of the 13 colonies were outraged when the British Parliament started raising the taxes on sugar, molasses, and rum. These taxes were known as The Sugar Act. The Sugar Act replaced a previous Parliamentary Act, The Molasses Act of 1733. The Molasses Act had been designed to regulate trade while the Sugar Act's purpose was to raise money. The Sugar Act made the colonists realize they were being taxed without representation, and that they needed to fight for freedom. The Sugar Act was a vital cause of the American Revolution! | http://americangovernment.abc-clio.com/search/display/122455?terms=sugar | http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_2st_evoof2s/tgkedlgfvwyAAAAAAAAL1e/uxnue9yufck/51600/img_1282.jpg | http://images.cdn.fotopedia.com/flickr-3318487786-hd.jpg | http://www.brookston.org/photoblog/images/200551203154916_cane_sugar.jpg | BY: Olivia King

8: Stamp Act | The Stamp act was created in 1765 because England needed money to pay of debt from the French and Indian War. After riots and protests England reapeled it in 1766.

9: Between the years 1750 to 1775, England taxed the colonies in North America. Most of the taxes were made because England needed money to pay off their debt from the French and Indian War that went on from 1755 to 1762 and cost a lot of money. Almost everything in the colonies was taxed, but the tax that pushed the colonists over the edge was when the British taxed paper. This act was called the Stamp Act, and it taxed almost every paper product in the colonies.

10: The Boston Massacre happened on the night of March 5, 1770. Bostonians surrounded a single British Soldier at the Custom's House in Boston, Massachusetts. The crowd grew to around four hundred snowball and ice throwing angry Bostonians. | Seven more soldiers and Captain Thomas Preston were brought in to assist the one lone Boston soldier. | The Boston Massacre | http://americanhistory.abc-cliio.com/search/display'289501?terms=boston+massacre | http://wwww.flickr.com/photos/timony/108553670/sizes/m/in/photostream/ | http://www.flickr.com/photos/existentailexits/444208511/sizes/m/in/photostream/

11: Eventually, the British soldiers opened fire on the crowd. According to Preston, he never gave the order to fire. Three people died and eight people were wounded, two of the wounded died later. | At the trial for the British soldiers, Captain Preston was found not guilty, while two other British soldiers were found guilty and had their thumbs branded. | http://www.flickr.com/mamaquilla/4832316289/sizes/m/in/photostream/ | http://www.flickr.com/photos/timony/108553519/sizes/m/in/photostream/ | http://www.flickr.com/photos/viv1/2858255760/sizes/m/in/photostream

14: In the years 1765-1770 two groups were formed; the Sons of Liberty and the Daughters of Liberty. Both groups were formed in Boston and they fought against the British for the same thing which was the Tea Act, Townshend Act, and the Stamp Act by bullying tax collectors, for example they would pour hot concert on them and then cover them with feathers. All these acts were made because the king wanted to make more money so they can make and sell more of their own products. The Sons and Daughters of Liberty was a big cause leading up to the American Revolution because this is what started a bigger event which was the Boston Tea Party. | http://americanhistory.abcclio.com/search/display/288001?terms=sons+of+liberty | http://www.fotopedia.com/items/flickr-2338448194

16: the Committee of Correspondence | By:Nicole Nolin

17: The committee of Correspondence was defiantly the main cause of the Revolutionary War. John Adams thought and came up with the idea, but Samuel Adams was in charge of it. The Committee was a big part of the war, it made quit a few laws, like not being able to go outside at dark and talking in large groups. The Committee was mostly in Boston, Massachusetts but they would go to all different Colonies and meet. personally the Committee of Correspondence was the main cause of the war,but others may have different opinions.

18: After the French and Indian war England was left with a large debt. To regain all the money they spent during the war they passed a series of acts and taxes to raise the money. Some of these acts were also simply just for saving money. One of those acts was called the Quartering Act. | The Quartering Act required colonists to provide food, beverage, candles, and a source of fire for the British troops. This act was passed in 1765 and did not only affect Boston but all of the thirteen colonies. And as much as the British Parliament loved this act was as much if not less than the amount of hate the colonists felt for this act. | http;//architecture.about.com/od/period styles | http;//imgfave.com/veiw/1322189
