The Proclamation of 1763 was the prevention of westward expansion. This was created in order to satisfy the Native Americans after the French and Indian war. This angered colonists, as they wanted more land, which came with more profits.
The Stamp Act put taxes on all paper, to help pay for the soldiers guarding them. This made the citizens angry, as they felt they didn't need protection, so why should they pay for it.
The Townshend Act taxed goods and their transportation to the colonies. This angered the colonists for the exact same reason as with the Stamp Act.
The Tea Act was a monopoly on tea. It forced colonists to buy only from Great Britain, which enabled Great Britain to set the prices as high as they wanted. The colonists either paid it, or they didn't have tea. This led to the Boston Tea Party in protest.
The Quartering Act of 1774 forced colonists to provide food and housing to soldiers. The colonists didn't like this, for obvious reasons. Great Britain enforced this law as they didn't have any housing for the soldiers.
The Coercive or "Intolerable" Acts consisted of four acts all meshed together. These acts were the breaking point for the colonists, as the laws were incredibly unfair to them. The laws greatly restricted the colonists freedom, such as the second act: The Massachusetts Government act. This act gave power to the governer, and took away from the colonists. Previously, officials were voted into office, but this act made it so the governer hand picked them.
