Road to the Revolution Timeline

  • The Enlightenment

    The Enlightenment was a series of events with many well knowned people. Thomas Hobbes created the "state of nature". Which included no police, no militarty, no courts etc. People were very miserable and wasnted to avoide this time period. John Locke was also a great impact on the Enlightenment as well. Along with Jean Jaques Rousseau. The enlightenment was also a reason that judgment was applied to the governmnet. I give this a 8 because it affect many people in a bad way.
  • French And Indian War

    The war was primarily between the Bristish American and New France. The war began because of massive conflict, the war lasted for seven years. Soon becoming the seven year war. The outcome of the war was apparently "signifacant". The British American defeated France and took over Montreal. I would rate this a nine just because the war i feel lasted for a long period of time.
  • Proclamation Line of 1763

    The purpose of the Proclamation Line was to stablilize the relations with Native North Americans. It also ensured that British culture and laws were applied. I rate this a ten because it alows everything to come in to place and it allowed there to be ensurance in the British culture.
  • Stamp Act

    The Stamp act required that all newspapers, fliers, mail, playing cards, etc had to have a stamp on it. The colonist where not to pleased with what was going on at that time, and refused to buy goods made in England. A result concluded of the boycott and the act was replaced. It was then called the Boston Massacre, but people still protested and the violence led to five colonist death. I would rate this a seven because no act is worth killing five people in a result of all of it.
  • Boston Massacre

    The Boston Massacre occured on March 5. Bristish soilders came to kill five men and injure six. Bristish troops had been stationed in Boston. There intention was to protect and support the colonial officals. The Boston Massacre was a crazy time for people in that area. I rate this a seven because nothing is worse having five people killed and three injured just for colonial officals could be protected.
  • The Tea Act

    The Boston Tea Act created a new law which had a tax on tea. A group called the Sons Of Liberty went to protest. Ritch, poor, homeless were required to pay these taxes. The Sons Of Liberty dressed up as Indians and threw hundreds of cases of tea into the Boston Harbor for revenage. I would rate this a 7 because i personally dont think that they should have given taxes on tea.
  • Boston Tea Party

    The Tea Act was a new tax on tea. A group in Boston called the Sons Of Liberty began a protest. They would dress up as Monhawk Indians, and threw hundreds of tea off the Boston Harbor. I would rate this a eight because i dont feel that they should have placed taxes for everyone on tea. I just think that its pointless.
  • Intolerable Acts

    The Intolerable Act was a series of laws passed by the Bristish Parliament. This triggered and outrage of the thirteen colonies and then became the United States of America. I rate this a Ten because it allowed our country to become what it is today.
  • First Continental Congress

    Delegates and Representatives from the twelve colonies met in Philadelphia to discuss the Intolerable Acts. The decided to send a letter to kind George the third asking him to repeal against the acts. But he didnt. I would rate this a six because nothing majorly important occured and the king did not repeal there acts.
  • Lexington and Concord

    Bristish troops believed that weapons are being stockpiled in Concord. They were soon confrounted by farmers. The British troops fought back and defeated the colinals at Lexington and also Concord. In the end spite the defeat many New England colonist took stand and volunteered to fight. I would rate this a ten because it had a series of events that led to a good ending.
  • Declaration of Independence

    The Declaration of Independence is a document that list primary rights to become a independent citizen. Benjamin Franklin was the person who started the document but soon after Thomas Jefferson took the lead. Jefferson showed his ideas and were aproved. Us as citizens now had the right to become and independent nation. I rate this a 10 because it allowed the United States to become independent and not many counrtys have those privlages.
  • Second Continental Congress

    Some Of the delegates decided to meet to talk about the battles occuring in Massachsettes. They could not decide on the issue of independence. Thomas Paine once wrote "common sense". Most of the delegates decided to support independence and allowed the committe to write a declaration. I rate this a nine because it allowed people to have independence and freedom .
