Plymouth The 1st permanent settlement in Massachusetts established by the Pilgrims who came over on the Mayflower; they established a direct democracy called the Mayflower Compact.
Navigation Act British law that said colonies could ONLY trade with Britain since they were British territory; colonies could not trade with other countries. This led to smuggling. (Ex; John Hancock)
Stamp Act Tax on all paper products in the colonies (later repealed); this led to the famous phrase “taxation without representation is tyranny”

Quartering Act Law passed by British Parliament allowing British soldiers to take whatever housing accommodations they needed from the colonies.
Townshend Act Tax on colonial tea, lead, paint, etc. It was the protest of this law that led to the Boston Tea Party.
