American revolution

Quartering ActThe Quartering act was established in June 2, 1774. This Quartering act was the same as the Quartering act of 1765 although with one more addition. This one addition was that the governor had the authority to enforce arrangements to ensure that the British soldiers were sheltered. This act stated that the colonists in all the 13 colonies must house British soldiers and provide food and supplies to them.1. (Chapter 9 page 169) We’ve got seventeen officers staying with us.2. (Chapter 7 page 216) This was to keep sharp track of Colonel Smith and the other officers of the Tenth Regiment who were living at the Afric Queen.

Massachusetts Government ActThis act was established on May 20, 1774. This act restricted the number of town meetings. It also revoked the colony's 1691 charter which ended the constitution of Massachusetts and prohibited the election of town officials. The Massachusetts government act was to punish the inhabitants of Boston, Massachusetts for the incident which is known as the Boston tea party.

Boston Tea PartyThe Boston tea party happened on December 16, 1773. On this day Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty boarded three ships in the Boston Harbor. After they threw about 342 chests filled with tea off the ship into the ocean. This caused the two sides to become closer to war.1. (Chapter 6 page 144) If My. Adams then says “Now may God help my Country” come back here. Then we will take off our disguises and each go home and say nothing. But if he says “This meeting can do nothing more to save the country” you are to get out of that crowd as fast as you can, and soon as you get into Cornhill begin to blow upon this silver whistle.2. ( Chapter 6 page 147) The boy grinning with pleasure.The 'tea party' was not unexpected.

Administration of Justice ActThe Administration of Justice Act was one of the five laws initiated by the British parliament in 1774.This act was only applied to the colony of Massachusetts. This act authorized the governor of Massachusetts to move trials of royal officials accused of committing capital offenses, during performing their official duties, to another colony or to Great Britain if he believed the accused would not receive a fair trial in Massachusetts. The Act is sometimes referred to the Murder Act since colonial fears that it may allow royal officials to escape punishment for committing capital offenses.

Port ActOn March 25 1774 British parliament passes the Boston port Act. This made it so Boston’s port would be closed and would make the people living in Boston have to pay for the tea that was dumped out into Boston’s harbor.1. (Chapter 7 page 153) For it had been voted in far-off London that the port of Boston should be closed-not one ship might enter, not one ship might leave the port, except only His majesty’s warships and transports, until the tea was paid for. 2. (Chapter 7 page 154) His Majesty’s fleet surrounded Boston, enforcing the Port Act.

Lexington and Concord1. (Chapter 11 page 258) I don’t know. Paul Revere sent for me just after the firing on Lexington Green.2. (Chapter 11 page 258) Men are grabbing their guns-marching for Concord

Commitee of CorrespondenceThe Committee of Correspondence were like a group of messengers. They would spread news about British actions. This group was formed in 1764. Samuel Adams established this group. They would let the people know about the British actions by writing letters and pamphlets.1. (Chapter 5 page 117) He also began to employ him and Goblin to do express riding for the Boston Committee of Correspondence.

Quebec ActThe Quebec act provided that the new governor and council were to handle affairs in Quebec. It also stated that English laws will always exist in courts or trials. This act also extended the boundaries of Quebec.

1st Continental CongressThe 1st Continental Congress was held in September 5, 1774 at the Carpenter's hall in Philadelphia. All 13 colonies sent delegates except Georgia. The delegates were elected by the people, colonial legislatures, or by the Committee of Correspondence of the respective colonies. The colonies was to show they were united in determination to show a combined authority to Great Britain. 1. (Chapter 8 page 207) Sam and John Adams were standing and the other members were crowding about them shaking hands with them, wishing them success at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia2. (Chapter 8 page 207) But I will in, Philadelphia, play a cautious part-not throw all my cards on the table-oh, no.


Tea ActThe Tea act was passed by parliament on May 10, 1773. This act was not intended to raise the taxes of the colonist. The point was the colonist did not want the tea and it was blocking the ports. So the colonist wanted to get rid of it.1. (Chapter 6 page 123) England had, by the fall of 1773, gone far into adjusting the grievances of her American colonies. But she insisted upon a small tax on tea. 2. (Chapter 6 page 123) Only threepence the pound. The stubborn colonists, who were insisting they would not be taxed unless they could vote for the men who taxed them, would hardly realize that the tax had been paid by the East India Company in London before the tea was shipped over here. After all, thought Parliament, the Americans were yokels and farmers-not political thinkers. And the East India tea, even after that tax was paid, would be better and cheaper than any the Americans ever had.
