The revolutionary war... From the begenning to the end!

  • French and Indian war

    The French and Indian war was the not known yet but begenning of the revolutionary war. It was the main cause of the revolutionary war. It was started because the British colonist in America wanted the land east of the Appalachian Mountains but the French owned the land so Great Britain and the colonist went to war on the French. The result was a British victory in 1763.
  • Treaty of Paris

    After the French and Indian war, the French signed a treaty giving them all of their land that they did not give to Spain. Since Spain was allies to the French, they recieved some of the land when the french left. This is simply a by-product of the French and Indian war.
  • Proclamation of 1763

    The Proclamation of 1763 was the law passed by Great Britian that states noone without permission from the king may go into the new found land west of the Appalachian mountains. This made colonist furious! it was new founded land that the colonist fought for but were not allowed to use.
  • Sugar Act 1764

    The sugar act was the first act of many enacted by the British before the Revolutionary war. It was simply an act that put taxes on all sugar based products and sugar itself. The colonist were not very happy with this since sugar was quite a desirable product back then.
  • Stamp act 1765

    The Stamp act was simply an act that put taxes on all paper products and stamps. It was another method of Great Britain getting back money after the French and Indian war. The colonist were not pleased with this act either and they weren't please with any of the acts.
  • Quartering Act 1765

    The quartering act was an act initiated so that British troops may live inside of colonist homes. It also means colonist needed to supply the British with food, water, and ammunition. This law was made so after the war, the British could be resupplyed without the king having to buy the supplys. The colonist were not very happy about the British invading their privacy but who would?!
  • Writs of Assistance 1767

    This was an act that allowed British troops without a warrent, without any permission, and without warning, to barge into a house and search it for suspicious items. When they went inside they were also allowed to take what they pleased. The colonist were not pleased about this since it took away their feeling of security, privacy, and their sense of no one watching them.
  • TownShed acts 1767

    This act was an act initiated by Britain because of their suspiciousness againts the colonist if them wanting to start a revolution so they set a new act that
  • Boston Massacre

    The Boston Massacre basicaly started with a small rebellion or resistance in the city of Boston. The uprising led to British troops surrounding and suffocating the entire city! The colonist began to to throw rocks and hit the British troops. The British shot and over 500 colonist were killed!!!
  • Tea Act

    The tea act is very similar to the stamp act. It just taxes all tea products which is actualy very bad considering the fact that sugar is withing tea so you are double taxed basicaly, The colonist did not approve of this at all and they decided to throw a little party just for the welcoming of the new taxes that have been applied. ;)
  • Boston Tea Party

    The Boston tea part was the results of the Tea Act. It was the over boarding of all the tea shipped into the American colonies. The colonist did this so that they could get rid of the product and Britain would stop taxing it.
  • Intolerable Acts

    The intolerable acts became in affect after the Boston Tea Party. It stated that untill all the money for the teas was repaid, the Boston port would be shut down so no more prodcuts from Great Britain could come in. This was the reason the 1st Continetal congress met so they could discuss the Intolerable Acts and how they could handle them.
  • 1st Continental Congress

    The 1st continental congress has little to talk about. It was pretty much the writers of the U.S. Consitution and was full of delagates from each state in the colonies except for Rhode Island because Rhode Island was scared of another tyranny to occur. The 1st continental congress contained of many famous people such as George Washington, Benjamen Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson.
  • Battle of Lexington and Concord.

    This is the first battle of the revolutionary war which the American colonist lost badly. The British were on their way to Concord with 700 men to destroy the ammunition that the colonist had stored their. When being defeated at Lexington, on the midnight ride, a few colonist including Paul Revere rode from Lexington to Concord to worn the colonist the British were on their way. Since the colonist new that the British were coming on their way to Concord, the colonist won at Concord.
  • 2nd Continental Congress

    The second continental congress met so they may create the decleration of Independence. This is the foundation of today's goverment. This was a very risky thing to do since if they met againts the TownShed act and to make a new form of goverment which is basically rebelling, their crimes would leave them to a hanging if captured.
  • Ft. Ticonderoga

    This was a battle that the patriots won without firing a single shot due to their strategic advantages and skill in gorilla warfare. The British were ashamed of theirselves and the king was probably not to happy to have lost this battle either.
  • Bunker Hill

    The battle of Bunker Hill, despite it's name, it was fought on a differant hill. It was fought on the hills and even though the British had quite the amount of troops compared to the American patriots, but the patriots won due to there position on the hill, their warfare tactics, and their advantage of knowing their enviroment around them.
  • Declaration of Independance is written

    The Decleration of Independance was wriiten on the holiday we know as the 4th of July, and it was written by the 2nd Continetal Congress. This was the form of goverment in which the colonist would begin to follow from July 4th 1776 all the way to the current date.
  • Common Sense is published

    Common Sense, written by Thomas Paine, was a panflit that was intended for the American colonist to get them boosted up to fight for independance. This panflit was read all over the colonies. It was a great encourager for people to begin fighting for our independance.
