There were five acts that were put in place known as the Intolerable. The Intolerable Acts or the Coercive Acts were a series of laws that were strongly disliked by the colonists.

1) Put in place because of The Boston Tea Party, one of the laws known as the Boston Port act closed the Boston Harbor until the colonists paid for all the tea thrown in the harbor and showed respect for their ruler.
Another acts put in place was called the Massachusetts Government Act. What the act did was put all the laws into effect and prohibited town meetings without the governor’s permission.

Justice Act & Quebec Act by JonMichael
1.The Justice Act was basically a law that stated if a British soldier was prosecuted for murder was allowed to be sent to England for trial. This allowed the soldier to have a better chance to be let free because he gets “Home field advantage.” This makes it very unfair to the colonists especially the colonists who had their family member killed and the soldier wasn’t going to be punished.
The Quebec Act was mistaken for a punishment but it wasn’t indented for it to be. What happened was Quebec was extended southward toward the Ohio River. The colonists thought that the British government was trying to take away their land by allowing it. They thought that that was intolerable but the British did not intend for it to be that way.
2. Trial-The examination before a judicial tribunal of the facts put in issue in a cause, often including issues of law as well as those of fact.
Governor- The executive head of a state in the U.S.
Appoint-To or assign to a position, an office, or the like; designate
Council-An assembly of persons summoned or convened for consultation, deliberation, or advice.
Province-An administrative division or unit of a country.

British Officials Celebrate the Passage of the Quebec Act

These British officials are celebrating the passing of the Quebec Act. This Act was a very profitable act because the British were paid large amounts of money to let quebec extend into our territory. Obviously the artist of this painting was a loyalist because they accually took the time to make it. A patriot would never take the time to make a picture of something tht they depised so very much.

The quartering act
By Sean

1. The fourth act of the intolerable acts which was the quartering act was one the worst of them. The people of the thirteen colonies had to comply with the quartering act. Basically the people had to house and care for British troops and take care of them until they leave. That meant they can live in your home whenever they wanted and stay there until they feel like or have to leave. They also get to eat your food and sleep in your beds. The colonists did not like this at all because the British soldiers took used a lot of the colonist’s supplies.
The quartering act was the last thing the colonists wanted to deal with from the parliament because once the soldier leaves your home another soldier wants to live there. The parliament passed the quartering act as a result of the French and Indian war. Forcing the colonists to provide housing and food for the British soldiers. Most of the colonies accepted the law except New York and Boston.
2. Terms:
Parliament: a meeting for national or public affairs.
Quartering: to provide a home or a room.
Comply: to deal or work with.
Intolerable: not to be tolerated.
