The Boston MassacreIn the Boston Massacre British soldiers shot unarmed colonists. The British did this because a colonist insulted a British soldier and other colonists threw snow balls at the British. In the end British soldiers killed five colonists.

The Battle of BunkerHillIn June,back in boston, British general Thomas Gage decided to take controle of thr hills around Boston. The colonists found out about thier plan. So the colonists worked all night to build Earthern wallsfor protection. Historians say that either Putnam or Prescott said: ''Don't shoot untill you see the whites of thier eyes.''

The Declaration of IndependenceDrafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11th and June 28th, 1776, the Declaration of Independance was once the most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring moment. In the final statment of his document made the most important point: ''The good people of these colonies,solemnly publish and declare, that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independant stated.''

The French And Indian WarIn the French and Indian war, the French and thier Native American allies, the Wyandot fought the British. British and French troops also fought in Canada during the war. After Washington tried to capture Fort Duquesne he later wrote: '' I luckily escaped... though I had four bullets through my coat, and two horses shot under me.''

The Stamp ActThe stamp act was where you had to buy stamps and place them on all printed documents, including letters,wills, newspapers, and even playing cards. One colonist who led the fight agianst the stamp act was Samuel Adams of Massachusetts. In one protest letter he sent to newspapers: ''If our trade may be taxed, why no our lands? Why not... everything we possess or use?''

    You could have shortened down your paragraphs down a little so you wouldn't have to read as much and so they could be a little bit more bigger.

    I liked your paragraphs and pictures but, you could have made your second video shorter. The first one was great!
