The Tea Act was that Boston put a tax on the tea. This angered the colonists even though it made tea cheaper, so one night they dressed up as Indians and snuck onto the 3 ships that were full of tea and dumped them all into the Boston Harbor.
The British hoped that passing in passing the intolerable acts, it would bring back peace and order to the colonists but it had the opposite effect. A few of the Intolerable Acts were (1) the Boston Harbor was closed, (2) The governor decided when the legislature would meet, (3) People were sent to Britain for a trial, and (5) a large amount of a colony was given to Quebec.
12 of the 13 colonies met in Philadelphia to discuss the coercive acts that were passed by the British. They also came up with ways they could protest the laws being passed, such as boycotting certain goods.
