Intolerable acts 1774
This could be a real problem if the Boston Harbor doesn't open up

The colonists now have an army to intimidate Britain with, and are not completely defenseless, meaning they really are determined to start a revolution.
Permission has been granted to build a militia!
This pamphlet is significant because it gets a lot of public support, meaning that people agreed, and this could most likely have been the last spark for a full blown revolution to begin.
