Road to the Revolution Project






The Quartering Act of 1765 defined the locations and conditions in which British soldiers were to find room in the colonies. It required the colonists to house British soldiers in barracks. There was a total of about 10,000 British soldiers in the colonies. The colonists were also to feed and tend to them as they needed anything. This act was eventually overruled by the colonists.

Quartering Act

Stamp Act

The Stamp Act of 1765 was the first civil tax directed on American colonists by the British government. This act imposed for all colonists to buy special stamps for all legal documents. The colonists believed that this act was unconstitutional and they immediately resorted to violence so the tax collectors would resign. Parliament did eventually revoke this act in 1766.

Declaratory Act

The Declaratory Act of 1766 was passed at the same time that the Stamp Act was repealed. This act was passed by the British government basically to assert their authority and power over the colonies. This meaning that they still had the power to tax. This act was almost an exact copy as the 1719 Irish Declaratory Act.

Townshend Acts

Tea Act

Writs Of Assistance

Boston Massacre

The Townshend Acts of 1767 was named after the Exchequer Charles Townshend. It stated that Britain could no longer tax activities or products inside the colonies. They would only tax products that were being brought into the colonies. Some of these products would include glass, lead, paints, paper, and tea. The purpose of this act was to clear the imperial expenses in the colonies.

The Boston Massacre was a street fight that broke out on March 5th, 1770. The fight contained an angry crowd of workers and sailors and a group of British soldiers. The Patriotic mob threw rocks and snowball at the soldiers as they were protesting. The British soldiers then fired into the crowd killing five and wounding six.

The Tea Act was passed by Parliament on May 10th, 1773. The purpose of the Tea Act was to help the East India Company as they were struggling financially and had eighteen million pounds of unsold tea. The Tea Act hurt the company because the tea was directly shipped to the colonies instead of being shipped to Britain. Colonists protested against this act eventually leading into The Boston Tea Party.
