However, the reason the British Government had rule over the colonies in the first place was because of the British immigrants that moved from Britain over America. Whilst other European countries also did this, the 12 colonies were ruled and ‘owned’ by the British, for example, the French had control of Canada, or at least a substantial part of Canada, like territories such as Newfoundland. However, the British, in order to maintain control, used force which went too far in the example of the Boston Massacre.

The Boston Massacre This is Tyair Sallam, reporting live from Boston, in position to inform news upon the Boston "Bloody" Massacre across the colonies.

On this night, five men and boys were killed because of the confusion between the soldiers and the colonists.

The Tea Act sparked the final revolutionary movement in Boston. A company from East India, burdened with eighteen million pounds of unsold tea. The tea was shipped directly to the colonies, and to be sold at a bargain price.

Bunker Hill was a battle in the Revolutionary War. It is very well known and is a great example of the Patriots’ losing the battles but making those battles count. In the Revolutionary War the Patriots actually lost more battles but won the war. Bunker Hill was actually the smaller part of Breed’s Hill and it was an advantageous spot to have control of. Bunker Hill is seen very differently than it was. Before Bunker Hill it was unclear if the Patriots were willing or able to battle with the redcoats. The Patriots and the Redcoats both had advantages and weaknesses and the British eventually won, but at great cost.
