What is the acts/partys you are probably wondering  it is he the acts started the begining of a new county  called america now you are probably wondering how did a acts/partys help the start of our country well that is a long story.

                                                                                                                             The Boston Tea Party was an act of protest against the British for the Tea Act. The Americans had no one to speak for them in the British government. They were frustrated that they were being taxed by the government but had no part in how the government was run. They did not think it was right to pay taxes when they did not have a representative in the government ("No taxation without representation!"). They forced the Americans to accept a monopoly on the importation of tea. The sole source for tea was to be the British East India Company. Furthermore, they gave merchants in Boston, who were supporters of the British government, the exclusive contract to be the representatives of that tea company. Many of the protesters were teenagers.

The Boston Tea Party (initially referred to by John Adams as "the Destruction of the Tea in Boston") was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, on December 16, 1773.Now you are probably wondering how they got them back.  Well that was the boston tea party which was mostly a way to get them back so let's talk about that. 115 people participated in the whole process. 342 barrels of tea was thrown off the ship,that’s over 1,000,000 dollars in to   day's money.Also 90,000 pounds of tea was thrown over.The Boston Tea Party (initially  referred to by John Adams as "the Destruction of the Tea in Boston") was a political protest   by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, on December 16, 1773. A Group of determined colonists    which were called the The of Sons and Daughters of  of liberty discussed about how to get their  message across to britain so the decided to dress up as native americans then a large group of liberty dumped 342 crates of tea into the harbor.                                                                                 Image result for the boston tea party


                                The Intolerable act

The Intolerable Acts were the American Patriots' term for a series of punitive laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 after the Boston Tea party. They were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for their defiance in throwing a large tea shipment into Boston harbor.The Intolerable Acts were passed in 1774 to punish the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. There were three major acts involved that angered the colonists. The first was the Boston Port Bill and it closed the Boston Harbor until the people of Boston paid for the tea that they threw into the harbor.

 The Stamp act an act of the British Parliament in 1756 that exacted revenue from the American colonies by imposing a stamp duty on newspapers and legal and commercial documents. Colonial opposition led to the act's repeal in 1766 and helped encourage the revolutionary movement against the British Crown.The Stamp Act was very unpopular among colonists. A consensus considered it a violation of their rights of englishmen to be taxed without their consent—consent that only the colonial legislatures could grant. Their slogan was "No taxation without representation." Colonial assemblies sent petitions and protests. The Stamp Act Congress held in New York City, was the first significant joint colonial response to any British measure; it petitioned Parliament and the King.
