The first Continental Congress met in Carpenter's Hall in Philadelphia, from September 5, to October 26,
. Carpenter's Hall was also the seat of the Pennsylvania Congress. All of the colonies except Georgia sent delegates.
The Intolerable Acts was not just two Acts it was five Acts. The first Act was the Boston Port Bill. The Boston Port Bill became effective on June 1, 1774. The King closed Boston Harbor to everything but British ships. The Quartering Act was established on March 24, 1765. The King sent lots of British troops to Boston. The colonists had to house and feed the British troops. If the colonists didn't do this for the British troops, they would get shot. The third act was the Administration of Justice.The Administration of Justice Act became effective May 20, 1774. British Officials could not be tried in colonial courts for crimes. They would be taken back to Britain and have a trial there. That left the British free to do whatever they wanted in the colonies and to the Colonists. Massachusetts Government Act happen on May 20, 1774. The British Governor was in charge of all the town meetings in Boston. There would no more self-government in Boston.
The Quebec Act was established on May 20, 1774, This bill extended the Canadian borders to cut off the western colonies of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Virginia.

The Royal Proclamation of 1763 was issued October 7, 1763, by King George III. The purpose of the proclamation was to organize Great Britain's new North American empire and to stabilize relations with Native North Americans through regulation of trade, settlement, and land purchases on the western frontier. The proclamation created a boundary line (often called the proclamation line) between the British Indian lands west of the Appalachian Mountains. The proclamation line was not intended to be a permanent boundary between white and Aboriginal land, but rather a temporary boundary which could be expanded further west in and orderly, lawful manner. Its contour was defined by the head waters that formed the watershed along the Appalachia-all land with rivers that proclamation outlawed private purchase of Native American land, which had often created problems in the past.
French and Indian War
By: Vanessa
and Emma H.
The French and Indian War was a seven year long war between Britain and France (France was allied with the Indians). Although the fighting began in 1754, it did not officially start until 1756. They were fighting for the control of much of North America. This was part of a larger war that was going on in Europe.
The Quartering Act is a name given to a minimum of two Acts of British Parliament. Parliament forced the American colonies to provide the British soldiers food and any needed things for any British soldiers in the area. The Quartering Act was a minor change to the Mutiny Act and required annual renewal by Parliament. It was originally intended as a response to issues that started during the French and Indian War and soon became a start of tension between the colonists and parlament. These tensions led to the American Revolution.
" Give Me Liberty' or Give Me Death"
Said By: Patrick Henry
The Town shed Acts that began in 1767 were colonists refusing to buy products from Great Britain. During that time the son’s of liberty worked to overcome this. Also during this time the daughters of liberty were formed,they worked together to make goods for the people. As a result Britain imported troops to enforce the law of taxes. Those who did not pay taxes for something from Britain they would force them to have a solider in their home to make sure they paid their taxes,

The Town shed Acts of 1767
Fun Fact;After they dump the tea they cleaned the boat shinny clean to clear the evidence.

Articles of confederation formally Articles of confederation perpetual union.Was an agreement among the 13 founding states that established the usa as a confederation of sovereign states and served as its first constitution. A version was sent to each states for rattification. The formal ratification by all 13 states was completed in early 1781. Even before it was ratified, the Articles provided domestic and international power for the Contiental Congress to direct the American Revolutionary War, conduct diplomacy with Europe and deal with territorial issues and Native American relations. Nevertheless, the weakness of the government created by the Articles became a matter of concern for key people. On March 4, 1789, the Articles were replaced with the U.S. Constitution.

The new Constitution provided for a much stronger national government with a chief executive (the president), courts, and taxing powers. This is the same document we use today.
Intolerable Acts
Join, or Die. 1754.
By: Ethan and Brandon
-The British and the indians won the war and to keep Canada and several other possessions in the new World.
The famous "Join, Or Die" snake was created by Benjamin Franklin on May 9th, 1754. It has long been enjoyed as a political cartoon publish the American newspaper. Although few people noticed that was used as a basic map. The snake represents life, and it needs to join to live, and parts of the snake represents the colonies. The snake is sliced into pieces to show that the colonies need to work together.
fun fact; A member of the sons of liberty tried to steel tea before it was dumped
What Happened at the end of the War?
The French and Indian War ended with the Treaty of Freedom Proclamation. That is also what stated the War. It ended in 1763 because t had lasted so long, many people were dying.The last part of the war was the Treaty of Paris also.
The Boston Tea Party initially referred by John Adams as the Destruction of the Tea in Boston was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, on December 16, 1773.Also they through about 400 million dollars of tea over board and there was only two tea boxes left. They through the tea over board because they were having to pay taxes for stuff so they through over board.
Fun fact;The people that through the tea over board dressed up as Mohawk indians so they would think it was the indians.

1. The Boston port Bill
Bill of rights
The Declaration Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as independence states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. Instead they formed a union that would become a new nation-the United States of America. John Adams was a leader in pushing for independence, which was unanimously approved on July 2. A committee had already drafted the formal declaration,to be ready when Congress voted on independence.

The Stamp Act was an act that placed a tax on all printed material, newspaper, legal documents, and even playing cards. When colonists bought these items they had to get the item stamped to make sure they paid the tax.
The Stamp Act was created because of the French and Indian War. Britain defeated the French and Indians and had a had a large debt at the end of the war. Britain created the Stamp Act so Americans helped to pay the debt.
Thomas Paine
"common sense"

Instead, all future land purchases were to be made by Crown officials. Furthermore, British colonists were forbidden to move beyond the line and settle on the native lands, and colonial officials were forbidden to grant grounds or lands without royal approval. The proclamation gave the Crown a monopoly on all future land purchases from American Indians. Almost immediately, many British colonists and land speculators objected to the proclamation boundary, since there were already many settlements beyond the line. Prominent American colonists joined with land speculators in Britain to lobby the government to move the line further west. As a result, the boundary line was adjusted in a series of treaties with Native Americans, the Treaty of Fort Stanwix and the Treaty of Hard Labour and the Treaty of Lochaber opened much of what is now West Virginia and British settlement.
- Thomas Paine published "Common Sense" on January 10, 1776. He was a famous writer whose words greatly influenced the leaders of the American Revolution. Thomas Paine was born in England, and he soon became friends with Benjamin Franklin who encouraged him to move to America.
He wrote and published "Common Sense"
which demanded complete independence
from Great Britain.

One of the "Intolerable Acts" 1774

These are the ten rights that are in the Bill of Rights:

Congress can't make any law about your religion, or stop you from practicing your religion, or keep you from saying whatever you want, or publishing whatever you want (like in a newspaper or a book). And Congress can't stop you from meeting peacefully for a demonstration to ask the government to change something.

Congress can't stop people from having and carrying weapons, because we need to be able to defend ourselves.

You don't have to let soldiers live in your house, except if there is a war, and even then only if Congress has passed a law about it.

Nobody can search your body, or your house, or your papers and things, unless they can prove to a judge that they have a good reason to think you have committed a crime.

You can't be tried for any serious crime without a Grand Jury meeting first to decide whether there's enough evidence for a trial. And if the jury decides you are innocent, the government can't try again with another jury. You don't have to say anything at your trial. You can't be killed, or put in jail, or fined, unless you were convicted of a crime by a jury. And the government can't take your house or your farm or anything that is yours, unless the government pays for it.

If you're arrested, you have a right to have your trial pretty soon, and the government can't keep you in jail without trying you. The trial has to be public, so everyone knows what is happening. The case has to be decided by a jury of ordinary people from your area. You have the right to know what you are accused of, to see and hear the people who are witnesses against you, to have the government help you get witnesses on your side, and you have the right to a lawyer to help you.

You also have the right to a jury when it is a civil case (a law case between two people rather than between you and the government).

The government can't make you pay more than is reasonable in bail or in fines, and the government can't order you to have cruel or unusual punishments (like torture) even if you are convicted of a crime.

Just because these rights are listed in the Constitution doesn't mean that you don't have other rights too.

Anything that the Constitution doesn't say that Congress can do should be left up to the states, or to the people.
To use the Constitution, they had to get the thirteen states to agree to it. Some of the states didn't want to agree unless they could add some specific rights for individual people. So in 1791 the United States added ten new rights to the Constitution. These are called the Bill of Rights.
The Constitution is the highest law in the United States. All other laws come from the Constitution. It says how the government works. It creates the Presidency. It creates the Congress. It creates the Supreme Court. Each state also has a constitution. The constitutions of the states are their highest law for that state — but the United States Constitution is higher.

The Constitution can be changed. The Constitution is changed by an "amendment." Among the amendments is a list of the rights of the people. By listing these rights, they are made special. It is illegal for the government to violate those rights. As of 2006, there are 27 amendments. Not all of them involve rights, but many do. The first ten amendments are special. They are called the Bill of Rights.
