Road to Revolution

Rising Tensions

Navigation Acts 1651-1673 Laws passed by Britain on the Colonies putting restrictions on trade. This was the first time Britain seriously tried to tighten regulations on colonial trade. The colonies ignored this act and continued to smuggle goods.
Proclamation of 1763 After the French and Indian War, the British Government made it illegal for colonists to settle west of the Appalachian Mountains. This angered the colonists because they thought they just fought for that land and now could not use it.
Sugar Act 1764 Made sure colonists paid taxes on imported goods like sugar and molasses. Also created courts to prosecute smugglers. Colonists continued to ignore and smuggle goods. "No taxation without representation"
Stamp Act 1765 Taxed almost all printed material like newspapers, books, land deeds, documents and contracts. This angered the Colonists to the point of violence and boycotting British goods. The protests worked because Britain repealed the Stamp Act.
Declaratory Act 1766 This law simply declared the fact that British Parliament DID have the right to tax the English Colonies if and when it wanted to. Colonists continued to write essays declaring "No taxation without representation"
Townshend Acts 1766 Tax on imported goods like glass, lead, paper, tea. This angered the Colonists which led to more protests and riots between Britain and the Colonists.. British increased the number of troops and the Boston Massacre resulted.
Boston Massacre 1770 Colonists hurled rocks and snowballs at the British soldiers who fired into the crowd killing 5 men.
Tea Act 1774 Allowed British E. India Company to sell tea directly to colonists which hurt smugglers. This led to the Coercive Acts and the Boston Tea Party where colonists protested by dumped English tea into Boston Harbor.
Coercive Acts or Intolerable Acts 1774 Port of Boston was closed to punish Colonists. Acts increased power of Governor, decreased power of town meetings and Colonists had to house British soldiers. This unified the colonies more, they formed First Continental Congress and new government.
Quartering Act 1763 Required that Colonists quartered or housed British Soldiers and provided them with supplies. This caused great anxiety for Colonists and they felt this was controlling and restricted their freedom
