Description:

Before the American Revolution, the British colonies along the eastern seaboard of North America were a rather disparate group of competing entities. Strong dissatisfaction with various policies of the British government stirred them to action during the 1760s and 1770s. This fine website from the Massachusetts Historical Society takes visitors inside that struggle through official documents, personal correspondence, and newspaper pieces from those tumultuous decades. By clicking on the "Explore" section, visitors will have the opportunity to look into the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act, and other important documents from the period that led up to the actual Revolution.
