The Sugar Act was passed in 1764. The British placed a tax on sugar, wine, and other important things. The British did this because they wanted more money. They wanted this money to help provide security for the Colonists. The security was expensive because of the Indians and fights with foreign powers. The British also hoped that the act would force colonists to sell their goods to Britain as opposed to selling to other countries.

The Sugar Act made the people in the colonies very upset. If they only traded with Britain, they would not be able to sell their goods for as much. In addition, they lost money if they bought they same amount of sugar, wine and other important things that they did before the Sugar Act started. The people in the colonies were worried that Britain would start making them spend more and more money for their goods through taxes.

Some leaders in the colonies started to boycott, or to quite 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. The colonists became more united because they opposed the Sugar Act.

In this book The Boston Massacre by Dee Ready. The book provided primary sources such as a drawn picture of the Boston Massacre made by paul revere.This book also provides information on the reactions of the colonists. This is relevant to the research because it helped prove the Thesis. This is to infrom information on the way The Boston Massacre affected the out come of the war.

This Website talks about the Boston Massacre. Mostly about what happened during the whole event and what John Adams did after the event. John Adams was the defender of the eight British Soldiers. Five colonists were killed when the British fired at the them. Two out the eight soldiers were declared guilty of manslaughter. The others, including the officer were acquitted. The incident was skillfully exploited by Samuel Adams. Colonists were mad how the British didn't get a punishment. Without this website we wouldn't have been able to find out what John Adams did after the Boston Massacre.

this website helped us alot because it was a whole review on what happened during and after the boston massacr. It occured on March 5, 1770. Captain Thomas preston was the one who called in the additional soldiers. when the soldiers fired at the mob they killed 3 men that died instantly. crispus attucks, samuel gray and james caldwell were the 3 men that died on the spot. 8 men were wounded but 2 died the next day samuel maverick and patrick carr. without this website it wouldnt have helped the project figure out who the people were injured amd dead.
