1770 · Boston Tea Party
Age 2
Thousands of British troops were sent to Boston to enforce Britain's tax laws. Taxes were repealed on all imports to the American Colonies except tea. Americans, disguised as Native Americans, dumped chests of tea imported by the East India Company into the Boston Harbor in protest. This escalated tensions between the American Colonies and the British government.
1775 · The Shot Heard Around the World
Age 7
"On April 18, 1775, a shot known as the ""shot heard around the world"" was fired between American colonists and British troops in Lexington, Massachusetts. This began the American War for Independence. Fifteen months later, Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence. The Treaty of Paris was signed in September 1783 which ended the war. The colonies were no longer under British rule. Many who fought for the British fled to Canada, the West Indies, and some to England."
1789 · The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano
Age 21
"Former slave Olaudah Equiano settled in London and published his autobiography titled ""The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano."" Equiano learned to read and write and converted to Christianity. His autobiography is one of the oldest published works by an African-American writer."
