  • Turn open to your unit learning goal, where does our objective fit into level 2 and 3 for the unit goal
  • Title page 37 on your TOC and on page 37, “Lead Up to War Notes”
1 vocabulary
1. Vocabulary
  • Duty: tax on imports
  • Boycott: Refusal to buy certain goods, guess who’s? 
  • Petition: a formal written request to a government
  • Writs of Assistance: orders that allowed English officials to search for illegal goods without permission
2 british rule leads to conflict
2. British Rule Leads to Conflict
  • Colonists were proud of their contribution to the French and Indian war
  • They expected Britain to be thankful for their help!
  • They expected only a minimum raise in taxes to help pay the war debt (123 million pounds of sterling) That’s a lot!
3 pay for what
3. Pay for what?!!

"it is just and necessary, that a revenue be raised, in your Majesty's said dominions in America, for defraying the expenses of defending, protecting, and securing the same."

  • England thought the colonists should pay for 1/3rd of the war cost
  • England’s Prime Minister George Grenville will use TAXES to make the colonists pay!
4 the sugar act 1764
4. The Sugar Act 1764

“Our trade is most grievously embarrassed!”

  • Parliament put a duty or import tax on several products including molasses and sugar
  • The act also put in place heavy punishment for smugglers (something the colonists were good at)
  • The sugar act worsened the colonists trade balance
  • Colonial merchants COMPLAIN!
5 the 1 st quartering act
5. The 1st Quartering Act
  • 1765, Parliament passed the Quartering Act to try to enforce the Proclamation of 1763 (about 1,000 soldiers kept in the colonies)
  • Forced colonists to house and feed British forces
  • The act further increased tensions between England and the colonists
  • The colonists complained parliament was violating their rights
6 stamp act
6. Stamp Act
  • Passed by Parliament in 1765
  • Required all colonists to buy special tax stamps for any printed material (Playing Cards, calendars, papers, books, wills, contracts)
  • Virginia’s House of Burgesses’ declares that only Virginia has the right to tax its people!
  • Colonial leader Patrick Henry attacked the Stamp Act!

“I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

6 stamp act1
6. Stamp Act
  • Merchants in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia boycotted or refused to buy British goods
  • Delegates from 9 colonies assembled in NY for the Stamp Act Congress
  • They sent a petition to the King and Parliament demanding the end to the Sugar and Stamp Act
  • It worked! In 1766, the Stamp Act was repealed
7 declaratory act
7. Declaratory Act
  • When Parliament repealed the Stamp Act it also passed the Declaratory Act in 1766
  • This act said Parliament had total authority over the colonies
  • Reminder to the colonies of who was in charge!
  • The success of repealing the Stamp Act was short lived
  • That set the stage for more trouble between England the colonies

Take that colonists! I’m in charge and you will obey!

Bell-work 11/2/12
  • Concept Exploration:

1. Define in your own words –INTOLERABLE

2. Use the word in a sentence that makes sense to you

3. Can you think of any other words that have the same meaning?

  • EQ: What led to war?

Hustle! You only have 5 minutes to complete Bell-work

  • Students will be able to compare/contrast the Tea, Intolerable and Quebec Act as evidenced by a completed matrix with 80% accuracy
  • Turn open to your unit learning goal, where does our objective fit into level 2 and 3 for the unit goal
  • Turn open to page 37, where we can continue, “Lead up to War”

You must continue learning about how Parliament and I angered the colonies

8 townshend act
8. Townshend Act
  • Parliament passes in 1767
  • Named for Charles Townshend, “Chancellor of the Exchequer,” AKA the chief treasurer for England
  • With the Stamp Act repealed England needs another way to make money
  • The act set up a system to enforce the duty taxes on: glass, tea, lead, paper
  • Act was also made to punish NY for refusing to quarter soldiers, it suspended their assembly

Money is needed to control the colonies!

9 boston massacre
9. Boston Massacre
  • Because of the Townshend Act, colonists again boycotted British goods
  • This hurt British merchants (why) and they urged Parliament to repeal them
  • Parliament repealed all Townshend Acts on March 5, 1770 except the duty on tea (left in place to show parliament’s right to tax)
  • But, the repeal came to late….
9 boston massacre1
9. Boston Massacre
  • On the same day, March 5th, 1770 an angry crowd of workers surrounded a small group of soldiers
  • They threw snowballs and rocks at them and yelled
  • The soldiers fired into the crowd of colonists, killing 5 and wounding 6
  • The first to fall for the cause of American Independence was Crispus Attucks, an A.A. sailor
  • Only two soldiers of the 9 were convicted of wrongdoing…their thumbs were branded
10 tea act
10. Tea Act
  • Parliament passes in 1773
  • Many colonists drank tea and were paying the tax with every cup they drank
  • Many colonists boycotted Tea
  • They were paying a tax that Parliament had placed on them without consent
  • The act was intended to help the British East India Company (one of England’s most important and profitable) create a monopoly in the colonies (No Dutch tea)
  • The colonists boycott of tea was hurting the company
11 boston tea party
11. Boston Tea Party
  • A group of colonists called the Sons of Liberty-we’ll talk more about them , organized in port cities against the East India Tea to stop tea from being unloaded
  • They threatened the ship captains and also the colonial merchants who bought the tea to sell in the colonies
  • No tea was unloaded in NY Philadelphia, or other ports
  • But in Boston, governor Thomas Hutchinson made sure the tea was unloaded
11 boston tea party1
11. Boston Tea Party
  • He did this by refusing the captains the papers they needed to return to England, therefore the tea would be unloaded
  • Tension built in Boston over the next 2 weeks
  • On the night of December 16, 1773 colonists disguised as Natives boarded the tea ship and threw 342 cases of tea into the harbor
  • They destroyed 9,000 pounds of tea
12 intolerable acts
12. Intolerable Acts
  • The Boston Tea Party outraged the British government and the King and Parliament would punish Boston with the Intolerable Acts….there were 4 new laws
  • 1. Close Boston’s Port: as of June 1st, 1774 and remain closed until the tea is paid for (10,000 pounds of sterling)
  • 2. Removed old governor: Thomas Hutchinson replaced by General Thomas Gage
12 intolerable acts1
12. Intolerable Acts
  • Removed the Mass. Legislature

3. Strengthened the Quartering Act: soldiers were strategically placed in homes around the Son’s of Liberty

4. Quebec Act: set up a government for the territory taken from France in 1763. Claimed land between the Ohio and the Missouri rivers as part of Canada. It took away the western land from the colonists 

12 summary

In one paragraph, at the bottom of your Cornell notes describe how British rule (the ACTS) lead to conflict.

In other words how specifically did the Acts hurt the colonies, use specific examples.

I will be coming around to check your summary 

December 17th, 1773

Dear Diary,

It was frigidly cold waking up for my patrol duty this morning at Boston Harbor. I dressed quickly and exited the American colonists home where I am being quartered. When I arrived at the harbor my breath was taken away from me. There floating in the harbor were cases and cases of tea floating the in sea water. This was not just any tea, it was the Majesty’s King George III’s Tea. I already know it was the rebel Patriots the Sons of Liberty who did this. They had been harassing British tax collectors and merchants who were selling our Tea. They were angry about the Parliament’s Tea Act. I can’t imagine what our Majesty will do about this loss of tea and revenue. …..continue……….

3 we need weapons
3. We need WEAPONS

Why not take the Red Coat’s weapons?

  • John Hancock knew we needed weapons
  • Why not take them from the British?!
  • Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain was used for weapons storage for the British (they had huge cannons there and we wanted them!)
4 bright idea
4. Bright Idea
  • Leading the surprise attack on Fort Ticonderoga was blacksmith Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold
  • After crossing the lake at night, Allen’s force of 83 men easily made the 42 British troops guarding the fort surrender
  • Important victory at F.T. because the fort controlled the water route between Canada and the Hudson River and it held valuable weapons including several dozen cannons.
  • Later the same cannons would be used to drive the British from Boston! 
