Transcript of Patriots perspective of the Revolutionary War

Boston Tea Act Tea Act Intolerable Acts The Declaration of Independence was made (draft) Boston Massacre The redcoats shot five people. We weren''t threatening them, the patriots were just arguing for there rights and some redcoats come over. Everyone is yelling at eachother and they just start to shoot. Why did they shoot, why were they even there when this wasn't their fight. We were only doing what we thought was right, so Britain would notice us. That's when Britain decided to punish us and close the Boston ports. They also banned the Commitees of Correspondence and put more soldiers in the area. We were just thinking of our way of livingand with Britain ruling over us there is no good way of living. Now we can't even write letters to others. America can be it's own country Stamp Act Quartering Act Freedom from Britain This states that America would have freedom of speech, religion, press, etc. The British kept on shipping tea hopping we would take their side, but why would we take there side when the British was taxing us after a war we fought for them Patrick Henry The British taxed us again. They taxed us even for newspapers. This time they directly taxed us. Everybody has to pay for a stamp with silver. Lexington and Concord The Battle of Bunker Hill Patrick Henry Sugar Act Britian wouldn't rule over us any more if we win the war. That means no more redcoats, shooting at us, and no King to tell us what to do (who's right or who's wrong) Lexington and Concord John Locke The Battle of Bunker Hill Sugar Act John Locke George Washington George Washington Samuel Adams In Lexington, the Patriots hid British arm staff to give the Patriots time to spread the word about war with the Patriots. Why can't we be part of Britsh government. The British have no right to tax a country they don't live in. Merchants have to pay for sugar, molasses and goods while the British just stand there. "No taxation without represention" -Patrick Henry The militia lost against the British but they almost won the war, the redcoats had to gain reinforcments. That is why they won we practically won the battle. John Locke makes the point that we were born with natural rights. We can't have natural rights if the British government makes more laws that make it harder to have natural rights. The redcoats can't violate our property. Yet, they do so by passing the writs of assistance "The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged." -Patrick Henry He resists so we should incourage him, he came here for the same reason most of us did. That reason is to not be part of British command. We can't get away from British command unless we rebel and get independece and freedom from them. Silver is very rare how are we even going to afford a stamp. We never have represenetion in the British government, the government that makes our laws. Why do we have to house the British? This is violation of our property. We shouldn't have to pay for soldiers we don't even know, yet alone keep them in our house. Samuel Adams As the redcoats went up Breed's Hill they knew we had very little amunition left. We used up all of our amunition as our men were getting killed. Though we had to abandon the hill we knew we won in our minds. "I have been obliged to his dilligent researches: but, for the defence of liberty, upon a general principle, upon a constitutional principle, it is a ground on which I stand firm; on which I dare meet any man. he gentleman tells us of many who are taxed, and are not represented."
-William Pitt Townshend Acts Townshend Acts It is unfair to pay an official's salary when we have to pay for our health. The New York assembly should have to fail to protect us because the British government thinks they're superior to us. That is why British Parlement decides to make us house and take care of random soldiers, making the British give back thje New York assembly. Adams is one of the leaders of the sons of liberty and he wants to rebel against British rule. He knows that we, the people of these colonies, need self government and independence from the British Parliament. “The truth is, all might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they ought.” Stamp Act Quartering Act Intolerable Acts Boston Massacre The leader of our very own continental army believes in freedom. He and other Patriots believe that the king has pursecuted us and our natural rights. "There is a Destiny which has the control of our actions, not to be resisted by the strongest efforts of Human Nature." -George Washington
