The Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party Was Turning Point Where Britan Began To Notice What The Colonists Really Wanted
After The Boston Tea Party happened, Britain was really irritated. At first, Britain punished the colonists of Massachusetts for creating the Boston by passing the Intolerable Acts. Britain did not support slavery so the U.S. wouldn't have slaves if it was controlled by Britain. If the Boston Tea Party had never happened, many people would not have been encouraged enough to protest back and Britain would have gained more power.
The Colonists' RIghts
The colonists of Massachusetts faced many punishments, known as the Intolerable Acts. The Intolerable Acts was the American Patriots' name for a series of punitive laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 after the Boston Tea party. They were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for their defiance in throwing a large tea shipment into Boston harbor. In Great Britain, these laws were referred to as the Coercive Acts. The colonists continued to pay many taxes as a punishment.
At the moment, there weren't any presidents or governmental branches. Britain's parliament was in control of the colonies and making up all of the laws and acts. The were not any representative governments yet and the colonists could not choose any one that they think would be a great leader. Britain was unfair to the colonists because they were the ones that left New England to start a new country, but Britain was somehow still in charged.
Britain's parliament has a lot of powers including placing taxes, passing acts, and forcing people to follow them. Britain decides who the leader is and the colonists cant vote for their representatives because parliament wouldn't allow it. Britain is making money off the colonies , which is not fair.
