744 words - 3 pages

We Demand Independence Now!Dear King George III,You have caused us all pain and suffering. Your ignorance and inequality has greatly affected our lives. The horrible acts you put on us gave us reason to be infuriated. We have decided that there is only one solution. We, the colonists, will declare independence and break away from the ever vicious hold of Britain.We have the right to be enraged because your commands are overwhelming. You have placed tax after tax on our community. We were not able to have our molasses and other products from the West Indies because you commanded so with the Sugar Act. For every document and piece of paper bought we had to pay a tax because of the Stamp Act. This taxation was placed without any American representation.

The Proclamation of 1763 forced us to not move west of the Appalachian Mountains for which we fought and gave our lives for. Since you could not protect us from the Native Americans because of your war debt, which you paid us pay for, we were not able to move to our new gained lands. To enforce the Proclamation of 1763, you sent dozens of soldiers to our colonies. We had to provide them with food, beer, a place to sleep, and transportation because you passed the Quartering Act. We cannot afford what your country should be paying for. Then you placed an excruciating act on us, The Coercive Acts. You closed down the port of Boston, put the colony of Massachusetts under house arrest, soldiers were placed in their communities, and British officials could not be tried in Massachusetts. By closing down the port of Boston, you were practically starving the citizens of Boston who received their food from outside sources. No reasonable king...
