The British parliament still needed money because they were in severe debt after the French and Indian war so they decided to pass the Tea Act which added a tax to all British tea sold in the colonies.
We vote yes to the Tea act!
Boston tea Party
After Parliament passed the Tea Act some colonists dressed up as Native Americans, jumped on a boat and started throwing crates of British Tea overboard.
After the Boston Tea party British Parliament decided to punish the colonists with the Intolerable Acts which had three laws including, colonists had to allow british soldiers into their homes, closed Boston Harbor until the dumped tea was paid for, and banned the committee of correspondence.
After the British ratified the Intolerable Acts the colonists boycotted all trade with Britain until they decided to repeal the acts.
