  • The Quartering Act
  • March24, 1774
  • The Boston Tea Party was when the Sons of Liberty dumped 342 crates of tea off all boats into the Boston Harbor. Late one night, members of the Sons of Liberty disguised as Mohawk Indians, boarded the ships, broke open all the chests of tea, and dumped the tea overboard.
  • The British put taxes on tea. In Pennsylvania and New York colonists did not allow ships carrying British tea to enter their ports. People in the colonies soon decided to boycott all British tea.
  • The British government ordered the colonists to quarter British soldiers or pay for their housing. The colonists had to feed the soldiers and give them a place to sleep. The king also made General Thomas Gage in the new colonial governor of Massachusetts.
