The furious royal government responded to the "Boston Tea Party" by the Intolerable Acts of 1774, practically eliminating self-government in Massachusetts and closing Boston's port. The news of the destruction of the tea raised the spirit of resistance in the colonies. With this act, the colonists started the violent part of the revolution. It was the first attempt for the colonists to resist violently against the Great Briton. It was when all the colonists realized for the first time that they were treated wrong by the British government.
The first event that caused the American Revolution was the Seven Years War also known as the French and Indian War. One of the crucial causes of the American Revolution was the Boston Massacre also known as Incident on King Street by the British which was on 5th March 1770. The Boston Massacre was a street fight by the British Army who were throwing snowballs, stones and sticks at the colonists. The Boston Massacre happened because hundreds of men lost their job and they gathered on King Street where the British troops had been stationed in Boston since 1768. The colonists were blaming the British for their loss.
This was meant to ensure that the governors and judges would comply with Britain. The Boston Massacre happened when a British soldier shot and killed five colonists causing outrage among them. The Boston Tea Party was when the colonists decided to dump
Moreover, Britain suffered from national debts throughout the war. The Hessians service that they obtained during the war required money and if the British did not pay them enough, they will not fight well in the battles.

In May of 1789 a series of so called 'bread riots' erupted throughout the country, in places like Picardy, Normandy and Flanders. On the 12 July, one of Louis's financial ministers Necker was dismissed and this dismissal was a signal of the power struggle for control of the country. In the coming days following this, the people attacked monasteries and a veterans hospital in search of arms. The army Louis had deployed to quell this uprising were considered untrustworthy by the sacked elected city officials. These officials created a citizens militia, however they were unable to control the people - "But we made a sorry showing; we could not contain the people's fury; if we had gone too far, they would have exterminated us.
The trend of deflation intensified. The reason that nobody warned America of deflation was due to false prosperity. The 1920’s were called “the Roaring Twenties”, while mainstream culture at this time supported that it was a time better than anytime before then there were many misconceptions with masses of people at this time (Facts). America was very dependent on production and 42% of people were impoverished. Poverty in 1920’s America was defined by making less than a certain amount of money each year, which was determined by the government (BBC).
The government responded by sending in the army and attacking the protestors. 200 of those protesters were killed and over 1,000 of them were injured. The army was in 3 different cultures. This shows what the government is capable of doing when given the Power of control.

Not only did the trial of Captain Preston affect the relationship between the Americans and British, but also the Coercive Acts. After the Boston Tea Party, Britain passed these laws to punish Boston and reinforce British control. The laws affected the lives of the Americans and through the Boston Harbour Act, they were unable to utilize the harbour. Due to Britain taking away the people of Boston’s ability to export and import goods, Samuel Adams’ words were valued and Americans wanted Britain to be held accountable for “cutting off our trade with all parts of the world”. Adams was the founder of the Sons of Liberty, a group of merchants, politicians and lawyers, involved in the protest of the Stamp Act.
