The First Continental Congress was created in response to the Intolerable Acts passed by the British Parliament. The act intended to castigate Massachusetts for the 1773 Boston Tea Party.
Rebels boarded three docked British ships in Boston Harbor and threw 90,000 pounds of tea into the port. The Intolerable Acts closed the port until the colonists reimbursed the damage caused by the incident, unilaterally altered the colony’s charter and retracted certain liberties. A British general was also assigned as governor of the colony.
