Slide 1: Revolutionary War The Acts 9 By Sarah Slide 2: Tea Sugar Intolerable or Coercive Stamp Quartering Quebec Declaratory Townshend The different acts 9 Slide 3: The date of the stamp act was March 22nd 1765. The Stamp Act was introduced by the British Prime Minister George Grenville. The new tax was imposed on all American colonists and required them to pay a tax on every piece of printed paper they used. Ship's papers, legal documents, licenses, newspapers, other publications, and even playing cards are taxed. The money collected by the Stamp Act was to be used to help pay the costs of defending and protecting the American frontier near the Appalachian Mountains. The actual cost of the Stamp Act is relatively small. Only ten shillings. It was repealed on March 17, 1766 The Stamp Act Slide 4: This act was on April 5th 1765 The British placed a tax on sugar, wine, molasses and other important things. The British did this because they wanted more money; the British wanted this money to help provide more security for the colonies. Some leaders in the colonies started to boycott, or to quit buying, British goods. They told everybody to boycott them as well. They did that because they thought that the British would make the prices lower. As you can see the Sugar Act made the people in the colonies very upset. It’s officially called the American Duties Act. It’s a three-cent tax. The Sugar Act Slide 5: The date is March 24th 1765. It provided that Great Britain would house its soldiers in American barracks and public houses. This act will expire on March 24, 1767. Also under the law, colonists had to provide housing, candles, bedding, and beverages to British soldiers stationed in the colonies. The Quartering Act Slide 6: The Declaratory Act was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain. It asserted that Parliament “had, hath, and of right ought to have, full power and authority to make laws and statutes of sufficient force and validity to bind the colonies and people of America, subjects of the Crown of Great Britain, in all cases whatsoever.” It was issued the same day as the Repeal of the Stamp Act and was the work of the very same man, William Pitt. The Declaratory Act Slide 7: The date was June 29, 1767. It was proposed by Charles Townshend. These laws placed a tax on common products imported into the American Colonies, such as lead, paper, paint, glass, and tea. It also granted certain duties in the British Colonies. The money that was earned helped pay for the British governors and the other officials in the colonies. The laws are not a direct tax, but a tax on imports. This applied with the design of raising $40,000 a year for the administration of the colonies. Series of 1767 were laws named for Charles Townshend, British Chancellor of the Exchequer he is the Treasurer. Parliament still needed to recover the money required to finance from our French and Indian War. The Townshend act Slide 8: In the year of 1773, it was passed by Parliament in May this morning. It has launched the final spark to the revolutionary movement in Boston. The act was not intended to raise revenue in the American colonies, and in fact imposed no new taxes. It was designed to prop up the East India Company which was floundering financially and burdened with eighteen million pounds of unsold tea. This tea was to be shipped directly to the colonies, and sold at a bargain price. Colonists in Philadelphia and New York turned the tea ships back to Britain. In Charleston the cargo was left to rot on the docks. In Boston the Royal Governor was stubborn & held the ships in port, where the colonists would not allow them to unload. The Tea Act Slide 9: The Quebec Act The date was October 29, 1774. Expansion of territory to take over part of the Indian Reserve (1763), including much of what is now southern Ontario, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and parts of Minnesota. Replaced the oath of allegiance so that it no longer made reference to the Protestant faith. Guaranteed free practice of the Catholic faith. Restored the use of the French civil law for private matters while maintaining the use of the English common law for public administration, including criminal prosecution. Slide 10: Intolerable act is what the colonists call them, or the coercive as the british call them. They were now in the year 1774 and in the month of December. The acts have sparked outrage and resistance in the colonies and are important developments in the growth of the American Revolution. The government spent immense sums of money on troops and equipment in an attempt to subjugate Massachusetts. British merchants had lost huge sums of money on looted, spoiled, and destroyed goods shipped to the colonies. It was intended to punish the colony of Massachusetts for destroying tea that belonged to the East India Company and to show the other American colonies what might happen if they disobeyed British policies. This was in response to the Boston Tea Party. which also means King George the third was punishing them. Intolerable act or the coercive Slide 11: Bye I hope you liked the acts 9 Remember the 9 acts are tea, sugar, townshend, intolerable or coercive, revenue, stamp, quebec, declaratory, and quartering.
