The Intolerable Acts

The Intolerable Acts, also known as the Coercive Acts, were a series of laws passed by the British to punish colonies that were openly rebelling. They were triggered by the Boston Tea Party of 1773. Instead of regaining control, the laws only caused more revolt. The situation escalated into the Revolutionary War.
