The Intolerable Acts

In the wake of the Boston Tea Party, the British Government passed a number of 'Coercive Acts' designed to weaken the colonial rebellion in America. The colonists came to call these acts the 'Intolerable Acts'. Using your text books and handouts, list and summarise the main acts that were passed, what they were designed to do, the Colonial reaction and how this impacted the relationship between Britain and the colonies.

In your opinion, which of these acts would have been the most 'Intolerable' to the colonial rebels?
