Also known as the Restraining Acts and the Coercive Acts, were a series of four British Laws enacted to punish Massachusetts colonists for the Boston Tea Party. (The fifth Intolerable Act series was related to Quebec)
The first shut down the Boston port. No hay was transported from Charlestown, so colonists could not feed their starving horses.
The second end Massachusett's constitution and allowed only a single town meeting a year. Town officials would no longer be elected, they were to be be appointed by the royal governor.
The third required all colonial trials be sent to Great Britain and heard under a British judge.
The fourth forced American colonists to feed and shelter the soldiers sent there to punish them.
