The Intolerable Acts
The Boston Massacre was in 1770 the massacre killed 5 people and 6 people were wounded. It started because one of the colonists threw a snowball.
The Boston Tea Party started because Britain started something called taxation without representation and so colonists got mad and frustrated and dumped 90,000 pounds of tea into the Boston harbor. Taxation without representation is imposing taxes on people(colonists) Who don't have there against or authority over it.
The Intolerable Act was when trade ships were forbidden to enter or leave the Boston harbor because it was closed.Many people lost there jobs because of that. Colonists all met to talk in a meeting about this.
