It was King George III you're thinking of here. :) The Boston Port Act was enacted March 31, 1774, and was supposed to be enforced until Boston had paid restitution for the tea destroyed in the Boston Tea Party. As the main source of trade and commerce for Massachusetts, this Act did not go over well, as you can imagine. The Siege of Boston followed shortly afterward, and British General Thomas Gage occupied Boston, and the British used the Boston Port to bring in their own war supplies and troops. The following March, the Continental Army drove the British out of Boston, and March 17 is now celebrated as Evacuation Day.

So, to answer your question, just barely under a year.
