To punish Colonist Britain passed the Intolerable acts (5) –Colonist did not like this The colonists threw snowballs in front of a building. The Redcoats came out firing and killing. Now Crispus Attacks and four others lay dead. When they first saw the Redcoats, they should have fled. Following the shooting a short while after, this instance became known as the Boston Massacre. The Sons of Liberty rose up once again. They threw a tea party in the harbor of Boston. On that night of December of '73, we destroyed 342 chests of tea.
