The colonists tried to tell the British that they did not like the law and they didn’t listen so the colonists tipped lots of the British tea into the harbor to show they really don’t like the law. The Intolerable Acts began when the British hoped to force the colonists for the tea lost in the harbor and to obey British rule. The Coercive Acts closed the port of Boston and imposed military rule on all of Massachusetts. The colonists could not tolerate the acts. On the day the acts went into effect, flags throughout the colonies were flown
Theses act were put in to place to punish the colonist for dumping the British tea into the Boston harbor.

The above document is an example of propaganda biased in favor of the Loyalists/British. This is because in this document, the colonists are portrayed as vicious and at fault for the events of the Boston Massacre. In the image, the colonists are actively attacking the British as they are being shot at while the British seem almost fearful and to be firing in self defense. This serves as propaganda because it attempts to convince viewers that the Patriot colonists were at fault for the Boston Massacre and the the British were innocent.

The colonists thought this was an unreasonable reaction, but in all reality Britain really should have done this
