    3 effects

    1) it made the English king really mad

    2) Major punishments were imposed on Boston colonists

    3) Warrants were issued for the colonial group known as the Sons of Liberty

    The rebels took the barrels of tea and tossed them into the Boston Harbor, giving the historic event its name. However, this is not the only things that happened - the British retaliated with the Coercive Acts, otherwise known as the Intolerable Acts. The Intolerable Acts included a series of laws that 1) Closed Boston Harbor 2) Banned town meetings, disallowing the self-government that the colonies were stretching towards 3) (and probably the most infamous of all) the Quartering Act. The Quartering Act allowed British soldiers to stay in the homes of colonial citizens and take whatever food they may happen to "need." The outrage this act caused the future creation of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution - banning soldiers from quartering in the homes of citizens.
