It angered ALL Americans, no matter what colony they were from. Before, each colony acted like a miniature country. After the taxation, the colonies began to unite as Americans

slide15

The Daughters of Liberty helped boycott (refuse to buy) imported goods because Britain put a tariff (tax) on them. They made their own “Liberty Tea” and wove their own cloth instead of buying these things from Britain. This really HURT British business and soon the Townshend Acts were repealed (canceled)

The colonists told Britain that no tea ships would be allowed into Boston Harbor, but Britain sent them anyway. The Sons of Liberty dressed as Mohawk Indians, boarded the ship at night, and dumped all the tea into the harbor. This was known as the Boston Tea Party. (1773)

Tensions were high in the colonies because of the British-imposed taxes. British soldiers panicked during a protest and shot 5 colonists (freeman Crispus Attucks was the first killed): The Boston Massacre. Then the British repealed all taxes except for the Tea Tax to show them who was boss. The colonists protested, threw tea off British ships into Boston Harbor, causing the Boston Tea Party

slide40

This is the meaning of “No Taxation Without Representation!” and why this saying meant a lot to the colonists

slide41

The colonists were being taxed by Britain. They had been self-governed for years; they did not vote in Britain and therefore had no representation there. The colonists believed the British had no right to tax them since they did not vote on it.

slide47

British heard colonists were stock-piling weapons in Concord, MA., so they headed out from Boston to seize them. Paul Revere rode to warn Lexington (a town along the way) that the British were coming. The Lexington Militia formed, but lost the Battle to the British. They British moved on towards Concord, but since the people had been warned, they were ready. The women had hidden the weapons around town as the men prepared to fight. When the British got there, they were outnumbered and suffered great losses on their retreat back to Boston

William Prescott. They battle was actually fought on Breed’s Hill in an attempt to take Boston back from the British (high ground!). The British won, but suffered the loss of HALF their men!

slide51

This strategy during the Battle of Bunker Hill allowed the colonists to inflict heavy damage on the British Army

slide52

Waiting to fire until the colonists saw the whites of the British soldiers’ eyes. This allowed them to shoot more accurately.
