Road to the Revolution

French-Indian War (1754-1763)Since the arrival of the British colonists in America, the Native Americans were forced to retreat South over the Appalachians. Forced to retaliate, the Natives ally with the French to fight the British, only to lose to them and give up both of their lands."Grandshire, Major silsbee, was confirmed mostly to his chair. An old wound he had recieved fighting forty years in the French Indian War has stiffned up on him" p.117

Proclamation of 1763An announcement that stated that British colonists couldn't cross over the Appalachians, into the Ohio River Valley. This closed the doors to colonial expansion and would help calm the Natives, who thought the British would drive them west.

Sugar Act(April 5, 1764)An act that placed a three cent tax on foreign refined sugar, molasses, indigo, coffee, and wine. It prohibited the shipping in of of rum and French wine. It affected the population of the colonies, especially the merchants, and was the first time the colonies spoke of how much they were taxed.

Stamp Act(March 22 1765)The act that set taxes on all paper documents in the colonies. Colonists argued that only their own representative assemblies could tax them, resorting to mob violence scaring stamp collectors into resigning. Parliment appealed the act in 1766."When the merchants agreed not to import any English goods until the Stamp Act was repealed, he was one of the first to sign-then imported secretly". Ch 4 p.82

Quartering Act of 1765(March 24 1765)An act stating that British troops were to be sheltered in barracks provided by the colonies. If they were too small, they were to stay in houses of wine sellers, and local inns. Others were sheltered in vacant houses, outhouses, and barns.The Quartering Act of 1765 only confirmed that perception Ch3 p 72

Currency Act(September 1 1764)Parliment passes this act to take control of the colonial currency system. This prohibited the issue of new bills and the reissue of current bills. Colonists had a trade deficit with Britain forcing them to protest, and also strengthned the use of British bills.

Pontiac's War(1760~1766)

Albany Congress(July 9 1754)A meeting made to set peace between the Natives and British. Seventy representatives from all colonies met with 150 Iroquois nation Chiefs in Albany New York. Natives not wanting to ally with the British, say that the French will drive the British out of the colonies and would reclaim their land.

Virginia Stamp Act Resolution1764

Declatory Act(March 18 1766)An act stating that Parliments authority was the same in America s in Britain and allowed Parliment to pass laws that bound the colonies. Taxation without representation was a huge matter in colonial view.
