What happened after the sons of liberty dumped the tea during the Boston Tea Party?

What happened was that when King George III heard of the Boston Tea party, he and the Parliament decided to teach all the colonies a lesson by punishing Massachusetts through 4 acts. They were called the Intolerable Acts by the colonists. The effects were :

  • Closed Bostons' ports until the city paid for the tea (other colonies sent food and supplies to the people living in Massachusetts)
  • Deprived Massachusetts of self-government and placed it under the rule of a military governor, British general Thomas Gage.
  • Allowed British officials to be tried in England for colonial offenses.
  • Issued a stronger Quartering Act that meant the presence of more British troops.
