Questions/Comments/ Inferences/Connections/ Predictions/Other Thoughts: Topic: The Intolerable Acts were a series of 5 laws passed by Parliament to directly affect the colonies in North America. The declaratory act is genius the British government is saying they have the same right as American government just like the colonists said they have the same rights as Englishmen in the Declaration to Rights and Grievances. Why is the governor getting all this power especially since the governor is the general of the British Army? If this guy was really smart he could over throw the British government and become tyrant by pleasing the colonists and getting them on his side. Then use his army as back up if anyone disagrees. 4 of the acts were direct response to Boston Tea Party Caused them to organize First Continental Congress Later the American Revolution took place Started with Seven Years War debt British therefore created Stamp Act and Townshend Acts Later both were repealed but a new act the Declaratory Act was passed Boston Port Act Boston Harbor closed until East Indian Company is paid for damages Massachusetts Government Act Gave British control over American government all officials appointed by British loyal governor Administration of Justice Act Governor is allowed to move trials out of Massachusetts if trial maybe unfair Quartering Act Colonists are required to house British soldiers Quebec Act Enlarged the boundaries of the colony in Canada Effects Led colonies to form First Continental Congress This Congress created the Continental Association The following year the American Revolution broke out Main Idea/Summary: The Boston Tea Party took place leading to the Intolerable Acts. These acts required colonists to house British soldiers, give governors power to move trials and appoint all officials. Also all damages to the East Indian Company must be paid. The creation of the acts are completely fair and maybe there should be some more.
