This will show those dumb British!
As a result of the Boston Tea Party, the British released the Intolerable acts, a series of completely unfair laws like the quartering act, which forced colonists to have to house and feed any British soldiers.
That's Pish Posh!
A group meeting was held between some of the most famous people in America at the time. This would be known as the first continental congress, and, would end up , after a heated debate, having the colonists basically just ask the British to take away the Intolerable acts. If only this worked.
