Life in Colonial Boston
This book tells about life in Boston, Massachusetts, from 1760 to 1773. Boston was one of the largest cities in the thirteen colonies of Great Britain. At first, the people who live in Boston copied the way things were done in Britain. But as time passed, they grew unhappy with the fact that they did not make their own laws. By the 1760s, Bostonians felt they were paying too many taxes to Britain. They felt they had no say in how their colony was being run. People began to hold meetings to complain about the taxes and to talk about independence. The Bostonians wanted to be free from Great Britain. We have illustrated the book with paintings and drawings from colonial times and with artists ideas of how things looked then."
