Coercive Acts (Intolerable Acts)
The Boston Tea Party made the British extremely upset. So they passed the Intolerable Acts in 1774 they were called this because the laws in it were so harsh. These acts were created created to make the colonists pay for the tea they dumped into the harbor, also to keep the colonists from attacking again. These acts prohibited trade between the colonies and Britain, didn't allow town meetings, and it strengthened the Quartering acts.This impacted the economy of all the colonies very badly. These acts also made a revolutionary spirit in the colonies.
