What I learned about the American Revolution. Morgan Galloway

This is the Boston tea party. They were also told they had to pay high taxes on the tea. This tax was called the Tea Act.
The Sugar act. The sugar act was bad, colonial merchants had been required to pay a certain amount of tax per gallon on the importation of molasses/sugar act.
The stamp act. The colonist protest against the hated stamp tax and it took various forms. Just some of the forms where, Stated the rights and grievances of colonists, they took the law into their own hands, the boycott also hurt the English economy (Etc.)
The olive branch petition was a letter to king George 111 from members of the second continental congress.
The committee of correspondence. It was difficult to travel in colonial times, so instead, they wrote each other letters. These letters were passed from person to person, with people adding comments and responses. It wasn't the quickest way, but it worked. It took quite a while for the papers to travel.
