  • The Proclamation of 1763

    The Proclamation of 1763
    Proclmation of 1763

    Dear Delilah, The Proclamation of 1763 was a great move for us colonists. First, Britain decided to ban all colonists from settling west of the Appalachian Mountains. We fought for the land so we have the right to live where ever. The Indians felt that we colonists would make them leave their homes as we expanded. Finally Britain understood that we would not respect the boundary without some enforcement.
  • The Sugar Act

    The Sugar Act
    Sugar ActThis is an article of the Sugar Act on April 5th, 1764. The parliament passed a modified version of the sugar act (1733) which was about to expire. Under the molasses act colonial merchants had been required to pay a tax of six pence per gallon on the importation of foreign molasses. This hurt the British West Indies market in molasses and sugar and the market for rum, which the colonies had been producing quantity with the cheeper French molasses.
  • The Stamp Act

    The Stamp Act
    Dear John,
    Mother says that I can only send you letters every two month instead of every month, becasuse the Stamp Act. It started March 22.You probably heard of it. How do you feel about it? I dont like it. I think that it is not right that we need stamps on everything. Even though the cost is small, it adds up to a lot. It's not even that it is expensive, its the bar it raises. We are British citizens, but we dont get treated the same. Write back soon.
  • The Quartering Act

    The Quartering Act
    Quartering ActDear Juliet,
    Several regulations are made and enacted for the better goverment of the army and their observing script discipline. In March 1765 Parliament passed the Quartering act to adress the practical concerns of such a troop deployment. Under the terms of this legislation each colony assembly was directed to provide for the basic needs of soldiers stationed within the borders. How do you feel about this? Please write back.
  • The Townshend Acts

    The Townshend Acts
    Townshend ActsThe Townshend Acts accomplished four things. One act suspended the New York legislature until it complied with the Quartering Act of 1765, which required legislatures to house and provide supplies to British troops stationed in the colonies. Another act imposed import duties on tea, lead, paper, paint, and glass, while a third act allowed tea to be imported to the colonies free of the taxes that were levied in Great Britain.
  • The Boston Massecre

    The Boston Massecre
    The Boston MassacreMarch 7, 1770
    The past few days it has been crazy. I still can't believe what happened. Paul Revere drew a picture of it, but because mother tought me how to read and write I know the whole story. On the 5th, there was a mob, I hear they were fighting about jobs. There were people crouded around screaming and yelling, and all of a sudden there was gunshots and smoke. It is now called the Bloody Massacre, or the Boston Massacre, 5 people died, and sadly, don't think this chaos is over.
  • The Tea Act

    The Tea Act
    Tea ActDear Allie,
    They recently approved the tea act by the British Parliament on May 10, 1773. It taxes three pence for every pound of tea, No one is pleased, in fact, everyoneis over raged, I think people are going to do something bad. i'm scared that if we do do something that the British Parliament will do something worse, The British Parliament taxed everyones favorite drink, it is scary to think about what they will do next.
    Love you're daughter,

    Intolerable ActsThe Coercive or Intolerable Acts was a name to describe the many acts that were passed after the Boston Tea Party, The british started the Coercive or Intolerable Acts because of what the colonists did, they went onto boats dressed as Mohawk Indians and dumped the tea into the water to show that the acts are unfair. Then, to show that the colonists did not have all the control, they made four new taxes.
