MAKING MORE $$$
Spending Less $$$
April 19, 1775
Battles of Lexington and Concord
THIS IS OVER A YEAR
Before we sign the Declaration of Independence
Required colonies use British shipping to move goods to/from Great Britain
Tax on Sugar and molasses imported from the West Indies
Tax was in the form of a stamp to be placed on certain good proving that the tax was paid:
legal documents, magazines, newspapers and many other types of paper used throughout the colonies
Which leads us to
British troops being stationed in Boston...because so many colonists there protested the taxes
The Boston Massacre
5 March 1770
most found not guilty after being tried
attorney was John Adams
Boston Tea Party
16 December 1773
342 chests of tea dumped into harbor
some protestors dressed as indians (not really trying, though)
THERE IS A MASSIVE WAR DEBT
But the war wasn't the French fighting the Indians!
Taxation without representation!!!
