The consequences were the colonist refusing to pay which lead up to John Patricks speech "give me liberty or give me death" which than lead to Pual Revere's ride and than the war.
The key people that were involved were the colonists and the milita.
They are considered a corporation because they formed to protect the colonist and fight for one cause.
They were the main fighting force in the war, they were trained and elite to protect the colonies.
The British soldiers were frightened by the minutemen because they moved quickly and could attack them fast.
