Andrew Oliver: the tax collector for the stamp act, a tax on commercial paper, he put the stamps on the paper – everyone used paper so everyone was being hurt by this tax, they were afraid of the taxes putting them into poverty – he symbolized British intervention so they did a fake lynching of him and put a dummy outside (an effigy), they ransacked his house in order to scare him away. They were lashing out at Great Britain intervention in American lives because Andrew Oliver was a symbol of Great Britain. They were also lashing out against the elites; Andrew Oliver was rich because he was a British local stamp distributer. Tarring and feathering: A form of protest against the tax collectors. Boston Massacre: Crispus Attucks was the first citizen killed; 5 Boston citizens were killed by British soldiers; propaganda; non-violent protest done by citizens, they had been simply boycotting until then, ended in violence (people got killed). First act of violence before the Revolutionary War. It is depicted as the soldiers attacking the colonists but the colonists were tormenting these soldiers throwing sticks and stones at them; however, this is shown against the British soldiers because the colonists were only armed with sticks and stones. Tea Act: an act by the British parliament, which made the price of English tea cheaper, but the colonists were illegally getting Dutch tea so this ended up pissing them off. Because they were angry the Boston Tea Party destroyed 10 pounds of East India Company Tea and because of this Britain was pissed so they created the: Coercive Acts: Closed all ports in Boston until they could pay for all of the destroyed tea. Britain passed these in response to the Boston Tea Party. Lexington and Concord: The first fight; this is where the American Revolution began; American army defeated the British with their weak and untrained army of common men as oppose to the British trained uniformed army. This broke out because they tried to arrest leaders John Hancock and John Adams for protesting against the crown but they knew about it; therefore they tricked the British into walking into militia fire. Crispus Attucks: First victim/causality in the American Revolution. Prince Whipple: He was a slave who served alongside his master George Washington in the Revolution. He was there the same night that Washington crossed the Delaware River to protect New Jersey. Lord Dunmore and Henry Clinton: Both British officers and both promised freedom to slaves if they joined the British army. Significance: in the end they were usually deserted or returned to their masters. Lord Dunmore stranded and deserted all of his black soldiers on an unknown island.
