    Homework - 8th grade
     
    We are now on the path towards independence.  We are upset with King George III and Parliament because they are taxing us without giving us any say with regard to those taxes.  There are a number of events(mostly in Massachusetts Bay Colony) which serve to increase tension between the British government and the Colonists.  Among these are: the Boston Massacre; the Boston Tea Party; the Coercive Acts; and the rise of the Sons of Liberty.
