they found that their rights were being violated because they were not allowed to use harbors and were starving to death
Because they had no say in laws they were forced to obey.
There were 5 Intolerable (AKA Coercive) Acts:
Boston Port Act--closed port of Boston until colonists paid East India Company back for the lost tea
Massachusetts Government Act--brought government of Massachusetts under British rule, stationed British governor in Massachusetts, limited town meetings to one per year
Administration of Justice Act--gave accused British officers the right to move the trial to their home country (England)
Quartering Act--forced colonists to open their homes to British soldiers and feed and house them for an indefinite amount of time
Quebec Act--not related to Boston Tea Party, and therefore sometimes exclused from list of Coercive Acts; enlarged "Province of Quebec" and let people freely practice Roman Catholicism
It was a law passed by Parliament in 1765 that required the colonies to house and supply British soldiers
It required legislatures to pay for certain goods for English soldiers stationed within their borders, New York rebelled and failed to comply with the law
The intolerable acts
To punish Bostontonians (people from Boston) for the Boston Tea Party during the pre-revolutionary period
The Boston Tea Party
The "Intolerable Acts" were the name given to five laws that were designed as punishment of the American colonies by King George III and Parliament. They were enacted in 1774.
(See below and the related links for information about each of the acts.)
The Intolerable Acts (or Coercive Acts), were passed after the Boston Tea Party, the 1773 act by radical colonists who broke into three East India Company tea ships and destroyed 342 chests of tea. (This was done to protest the Tea Act of 1773.) Enraged, the British Parliament instituted the five Coercive Acts to punish the mutinous colonists. The colonists, however, were even more angered by the new acts, which stripped the colonist of many freedoms and replaced them with limitations.
These Acts were the harshest so far of all the Acts passed by Parliament. The closing of Boston's port alone would cost the colony (and the American colonies as a whole) a ton of money. The Regulating Act was aimed at curtailing revolutionary activities. The Quartering Act angered colonists who didn't want soldiers (especially Redcoats) in their houses. And the Quebec Act was a direct insult to Americans, who had been denied the same sorts of rights that the Quebec residents now got.
they hated them thats why they were called the intolerable acts the name was given to them by the patriots
In 1774, Parliament passed a group of laws to punish the Massachusetts colony. The laws were so harsh that the colonists called then the Intolerable Acts or the Coercive Acts. One of the laws closed Boston Harbor until the colonists paid for the destroyed tea. Another law banned the committees of correspondence. Still another law allowed Britain to house troops wherever it wanted to, even in private residences.
The closing of Boston's port hurt the city badly. Boston's economy depended on trade, and soon many people were out of work. Other colonies began helping Boston by sending food, supplies, and money.
The Intolerable Acts had another effect. They forced many colonists to take sides in the conflict between Boston and Britain. Colonists who opposed British rule were known as Patriots. Colonists who remained loyal to King George and the British government were known as Loyalists.
At the same time, Committees of Correspondence began spreading the idea of a meeting. Leaders from 12 colonies agreed to meet in Philadelphia, the largest city in the colonies. They would discuss how to oppose the Intolerable Acts.
Intolerable Acts: Series of laws sponsored by British Prime Minister Lord North and enacted in 1774 in response to the Boston Tea Party. The laws were these:
These Acts were the harshest so far of all the Acts passed by Parliament. The closing of Boston's port alone would cost the colony (and the American colonies as a whole) a ton of money. The Regulating Act was aimed at curtailing revolutionary activities. The Quartering Act angered colonists who didn't want soldiers (especially Redcoats) in their houses. And the Quebec Act was a direct insult to Americans, who had been denied the same sorts of rights that the Quebec residents now received.
The intolerable acts were closing the port of Boston not letting anything in or out. The second was closing the town meetings. The third was the British taking power over the Massachusetts assembly. The last was called quartering, which was when the colonists had to let the British soldiers stay in their houses. After the intolerable acts was the battle of Lexington and Concord, and the Acts were in response to the Boston Tea Party.
In American history, the "Intolerable Acts" were a series of legislation enacted by the British Parliament in 1774 as a reaction to the Boston Tea Party.
The Acts stripped most self-governance from the Massachusetts colony, and instituted a series of punitive taxes and measures against the colony. It was meant to make an example of to the rest of the 13 colonies, which had been seen as increasingly resistive to Parliament rule since the passing of The Stamp Act the prior decade.
Instead, the Acts were seen as yet a further indication of Parliament's capriciousness and lack of concern for issues important to the American colonies. The Acts are a direct cause of the American Revolution, as the Acts inspired the convening of the first Continental Congress, which thereafter initiated the American Revolution.
the boston tea party angered the british and it all started because of taxes
General Thomas Gage
The colonists considered these acts intolerable because they taxed the colonists without their consent, and restricted the rights of the Bostonians.
It basically violated their rights and they didnt like to be constantly taxed.
The Quartering Acts (1765 and 1774) were enacted by the British Parliament to force the American colonies to provide housing and provisions for British troops.
The Intolerable Acts or the Coercive Acts are names used to describe a series of five laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 relating to Britain's colonies in North America. Anyways, they were a major factor contributing to the outbreak of the American Revolution. Prime Minister Lord North introduced the first measure, the Boston Port Bill, on March 18, 1774; it passed both houses of Parliament without serious opposition and was signed by the King at the end of the month. The port of Boston was ordered closed until restitution for the tea was made and until royal officials were compensated for personal damages; the Massachusetts capital was moved to Salem; and Marblehead was made the customs port of entry.
Two acts that were not specifically related to Massachusetts were also deemed "intolerable" by Americans. The Quartering Act (June 2) authorized civil officers to requisition houses and empty buildings to house royal troops where barracks were unavailable or unsuitable. The Qubec Act (June 22) granted civil government and religious liberty to the Roman Catholic inhabitants of the former French colony and extended the Canadian boundary to the Ohio River.
The Intolerable Acts, also known as the Coercive Acts, were passed because King George III wanted to punish Massachusetts colonists for the Boston Tea Party. the four acts were the Quartering act, the Boston port act, the Massachutts act, Quebec Acts, and the Administration act.
Boston was the only port closed.
They passed them because the colonists rejected and forced Britain to repeal the Stamp and Tea Acts. The acts included:
Soldiers were allowed to live in any colonists' houses at any time.
and they closed Boston Harbor, closing trade and hurting many colonists.
It forced colonists to accept British soldiers into their homes. The Quartering Act was an act, passed by Parliament that made colonists house or quarter British soldiers.
While many sources claim that the 1774 act allowed troops to be billeted in occupied private homes, this is a myth. The act only permitted troops to be quartered in unoccupied buildings. It did not, as generations of American school children were taught, permit the housing of troops in private homes.
When the US was still colonies of Great Britain, there was a law that required the colonists to allow the British soldiers to live in their homes.
they responded by dumping British tea in the ocean
The quartering acts were passed by the parliament to make sure that British soldiers in North American colonies had adequate housing and provisions. They required the colonists to provide places for soldiers to live.
It was a true revolution...the Americans did not want to be under British rule, paying taxes without having a voice in Parliament. The war was because Britain did not want to give up the income from the colonies, among other things, and the people at the time wanted to set up their own government and rule themselves. I don't know about radical--most of the people who joined the fight were young men and many were from families who had been in America only a generation or two. Part of the reason they won was that they used "guerrilla tactics," taking advantage of the landscape against the fighting formations of the British. A civil war is more the case of people of one country fighting one another over a disagreement. Here it was slavery, in the mideast, it is more by religious factions, in Ireland it was Catholics vs. Protestants and so on.
For starters, unfortunately, you have used Company Resources for non-company business. Let's hope it wasn't a 'personal' or explicit email. I had someone do similar to me once for forwarding a petition that was pro Daylight Savings using Company email while working for a Government Department. It was explained that this was considered anti-government and couldn't be acceptable using government resources. Then my direct boss said "You're not a trouble maker so just don't let it happen again. This is the type of thing we use to get rid of people. If we want rid of someone we just look in their inbox at the emails they have forwarded and there's always something to get everyonefor"
