The Intolerable Acts

After the Sons of liberty had created their first revolt in the Boston harbor the English Parliament knew something had to be done to establish justice. These included the Quartering act, which made soldiers allowed to live in colonists' homes, and the Quebec act, which restricted settlement of land. After such an intolerable step by the authorities the colonies put their foot down and this led to Lexington and Concord.

The Boston Tea Party

This radical act of rebellion performed by the Sons of Liberty was in response to the Tea act in which colonists were only allowed to purchase tea from the British East India Company. Disguised as native Americans the Sons raided a British ship and dumped all the tea in the Boston Harbor. In response the British shut it down.
