The Boston Massacre

Bb Boston Tea Party: The Boston Tea Party in 1773 changed History, The British sent supplies and kept the Colonies protected. In 1754, Great Britain and France went to war. In the end, Britain won, but had very little money left. The British government decided to collect money from the Colonists ( taxes.) They taxed sugar, glass, paper, and tea, and this made the Colonists angry because they thought it wasn’t fair. The Colonists they fought back they stopped buying British goods. In 1768. King George sent British troops to Boston. Where he kept the Colonists under control. But one day in 1770, an argument broke out. The soldiers fired, and 5 Colonists died. News of what happened spread. Many Colonists wanted the soldiers to leave. To keep the peace, the king got rid of all the taxes-except one. King George kept a small tax on tea. This is the reason they chopped open 342 boxes of tea and poured them into Boston Harbor. This is called the Boston Tea Party.

The first real drive of cattle was brought over by Hernando Cortes. The cows he brought over were Texas Longhorns. Many people in colonial times were farmers, so many people had family cows for milk and meat to make a living.

Cow Poke To prevent farmers cattle from leaving the fenced area one farmer [name unknown ] invented the cow poke. The way a cow poke works is there is a piece of wood sticking off the front of a harness and make it so cows cannot ram a fence and run away.

Churn and Churning This ancient way of turning milk into butter probably started when milk soaked hides were carried a really long periods of time and distances. The early churn was simply a item similar to an oar and a simple wooden pot. Butter was a big way to turn food flavorful so almost all the families in colonial times had a butter churn. Sometimes if there was extra they would go and sell it to people who didn't have butter.

H House

HAT John Hancock



John Hancock (January 23, 1737) – October 8, 1793) was a merchant, statesman, and a Patriot of the revolution . He served as president of the Second congress and was the first and third governor of Massachusetts . He is remembered for his large and stylish signature on the Declaration of independence, so much so that the term "John Hancock" has become, in the United States, a synonym for sigingcure. Before the American Revolution, Hancock was one of the wealthiest men in the thirteen colonies , having inherited a profitable shipping business from his uncle. Hancock began his political career in Boston as a protégé of Samuel Dames, an influential local politician, though the two men later became estranged. As tensions between colonists and great briten increased in the 1760s, Hancock used his wealth to support the colonial cause. He became very popular in Massachusetts, especially after British officials seized his sloop liberty in 1768 and charged him with smuggling. Houses As soon as they could manage it, the settlers built themselves houses exactly like those they had lived in at home. Most of them were brick, or frame with brick ends, and their roofs were thatched at first. Later, the roofs had been covered with red tiles. These were Dutch houses, built in the towns and farms up in Hudson. They were built high and narrow.

Hatters The “hat act” limited each hatter to only two apprentices, each to serve a full seven years. In America so long a term would eliminate all apprentices, but the act made little actual cession, no one in the colonies paid any attention to its prohibititions. In the next year, 1732, both Boston and New York made ten thousand hats and the trade went on from there, By 1774, Philadelphia, leading all others had 43 master hatters. Beaver hats led in money value if not in numbers.

Ii Immunization




Letter I

Intolerable acts: were a series of laws passed by the British to America, which they strongly denied. The main purpose of these laws was to retaliate the people of Massachusetts for the Boston tea party incident, and to increase British power in Massachusetts. These laws strengthened the rebellion of the 13 colonies against British which would later cause the Revolutionary war. Immunity: is when you have already gotten a disease and your body is able to resist to it and not get it again. Once the French came over to America, they carried some foreign diseases and got a lot of Native Americans sick. The French carried diseases like small pox, typhus, and measles. One third of all Native Americans died. When the Spanish came to Florida 24 out of every 25 died because they had no immunity.
