Once upon a time, in the land of the free America, there once were a group of people called “Colonists”. Some of the colonists were mean and some of them were nice. These groups of people were being ruled by a meanie king named “King George III”. Now, he was the boss of the colonists. He made them pay, pay and pay in any ways he could. This rule that he came up with called “Stamp act”. See, this boss was so bossy that he made the colonists buy a stamp for every piece of papers they used. The colonists were mad at him because they were running out of money.
Evil Taxes muhahaha ‘-’Pg 2
Turned by the colonists into this
The very next day, they came up with another mean tax that was called “Townshend Acts”. That “Townshend Acts” was a very meanie tax. That tax made the colonists pay for glasses, lead, paints, papers and tea. King George 111 came up with another meanie tax law that was called the “Quartering Act”. This act make the colonists obey to provide troops with quarters or housing. The colonists felt sad and mad about that. When the messengers of the king came around to spread meanie words that the king sent, the colonists became very mad. The colonist take them put some very hot glue on them and put some feathers on them. That action called “Tar & feather”. When they do that to the messengers
The very next day, a magical guy named between the British and the Colonists. In the war, the Colonists had a nickname “Militia” and the British had a nickname “red coats”. The British always dressed as red to show love to their group. After the fight, no one knew who fired first. Many people are trying to figure out who shot first but they couldn’t find out. Some of the people in the “Militia” and in the “Red coats” were being interviewed. Even that, people couldn’t find out who fired first. The only thing that was similar to what they explained happened was that this big fight happened in very good place called “Lexington, MA”. A place where smoke from their gun fires filled the air. A man named “John Barker” who was a “Colony” while being interviewed said “They fired two shots on us”. Thomas Pain from God appeared into the lives of the colonists and the British. He had a very good idea of how the colonists don’t have to be connected to be to “Great Britain” to be happy. he said a lot of good things to show his point. He called all of these ideas “Common Sense”. They were common sense like “well, duh everything he said made sense”. He said something like “we bragged about Britain protecting us, but Britain only protect themselves. Britain is a bad leader for us to take orders from them”. He also said something that was very interesting. He said “It is wrong for an Island to govern a continent but it’s right for a continent to govern an Island. America needs it’s own government to be independent”. A long the way though, there was a guy who completely disagree with Thomas Pain. The name of that guy was “Charles Inglis”. Charles Inglis was the opposite of Thomas Pain’s idea because he worried about the consequences of war and losing help from England. That didn’t stop Thomas Pain from having his idea though. He still stick with his idea and when he died, many people knew about it.
In the very next day, a guy named “Thomas Jefferson” came and he changed everything. The rich men were very healthy and the poor weren’t rich. The poor were many slaves. There was a saying that says “All men are created equal”. Thomas Jefferson was who came up with that quote. He gathered all of his people and all of them were wearing wigs. Long time ago, white men who wore wigs means that they’re rich. Many other men who were in that room, liked Jefferson a lot.
My name is Djackens Celestin, and I currently live in Jamaica Plain. I am currently 15 years old in 9th grade. Another book that I wrote called “Did the European & Native Americans in the “New world” share a healthy relationship? After these books, I feel like I can write more books for everyone. So, I’m planning on writing another book in my history class and I’ll probably name it “The American History”. I am very interesting in school; I hope to finish college and get my master degree. I enjoy playing football and basketball. When I’m done with school works, I spend my time exercising or relax. I am a big fan of the “New England Patriots”. Well, that’s pretty much it about me. Look for my other book please.
