The Intolerable Acts
The people will pay for their tea whether they want to or not!
In 1770, the colonists were still angry that the British were living in there towns and cities. The colonists thought the soldiers were rowdy and rude. On March 1770, Boston erupted into violence. It was a freezing cold night, and a soldier was standing in front of the Customs house. Some of the colonists threw snowballs.
The colonists were mad so they decided to dump all the tea in the Boston harbor. The colonist loved tea, but they did not like how they were being forced to buy tea from only one British company. They poured about 90000 pounds of tea into the water. They were careful not to destroy anything else but the tea.
After the Boston tea party, Parliament decided to punish the colonists by making several new laws. These laws were so harsh that many colonists said they could not tolerate them. They called the new laws "Intolerable Acts". Trade ships were forbidden to enter or leave the harbor until the lost tea was paid for. Workers lost their jobs, and colonists were worried that Bostons citzens would starve.
We shouldn't have to pay for tea that we were forced to buy!
