What were the Intolerable Acts and what did they tax?

King George III was very angry. So he passed the Intolerable Acts, also known as the Coercive Acts. The first act was known as the Boston Port Bill and it allowed the Boston Port to be closed until the colonists help pay for the tax on the tea. The Intolerable Acts were passed in 1774 by British Parliament.

What are the effects of the Intolerable Acts?

The British wanted the colonists to pay England back for all the tea that the colonists destroyed during the Boston Tea Party. Parliament also wanted more control over the colonies so it passed a series of acts, called the Coercive Acts, in 1774.
