The Boston Tea Party was a political protest that occurred on December 16, 1773, at Griffin's Wharf in Boston. American colonists, frustrated and angry at Britain for imposing “taxation without representation,” dumped 342 chests of tea, imported by the British East India Company into the harbor.
The Intolerable Acts were punitive laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party. The laws were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for their defiance in the Tea Party protest in reaction to changes in taxation by the British.
It was a group of delegates who worked together to act on behalf of the North American colonies in the 1770s.
