Timeline

  • 1773

    Tea Act. By reducing the tax on imported British tea, this act gave British merchants an unfair advantage in selling their tea in America. American colonists condemned the act, and many planned to boycott tea.

      Boston Tea Party. When British tea ships arrived in Boston harbor, many citizens wanted the tea sent back to England without the payment of any taxes. The
      royal governor insisted on payment of all taxes. On December 16, a group of men disguised as Indians boarded the ships and dumped all the tea in the harbor.

    • 1774

      Coercive Acts. In response to the Boston Tea Party, Parliament passed several acts to punish Massachusetts. The Boston Port Bill banned the loading or unloading of any ships in Boston harbor. The Administration of Justice Act offered protection to royal officials
      in Massachusetts, allowing them to transfer to England all court cases against them involving riot suppression or revenue collection. The Massachusetts Government Act put the election of most government officials under the control of the Crown, essentially eliminating the Massachusetts charter of government.

      Quartering Act. Parliament broadened its previous Quartering Act (1765). British troops could now be quartered in any occupied dwelling.

      The Colonies
      Organize Protest.
      To protest Britain’s actions, Massachusetts suggested a return to nonimportation, but several states preferred a congress of all the colonies to discuss united resistance. The colonies soon named delegates to a congress — the First Continental Congress — to meet in Philadelphia on September 5.

      The First Continental Congress. Twelve of the thirteen colonies sent a total of fifty-six delegates to the First Continental Congress. Only Georgia was
      not represented. One accomplishment of the Congress was the Association of 1774, which urged all colonists to avoid using British goods, and to form committees to enforce this ban.

      New England Prepares for War. British troops began to fortify Boston, and seized ammunition belonging to the colony of Massachusetts. Thousands of American militiamen were ready to resist, but no fighting occurred. Massachusetts created a Provincial Congress, and a special Committee of Safety
      to decide when the militia should be called into action. Special groups of militia, known as Minute Men, were organized to be ready for instant action.

    • The following is a guest post by Sara W. Duke, Curator of Popular and Applied Graphic Arts, Prints and Photographs Division.

      As a curator of historical prints, one of the first questions I ask myself is, “Why does this print exist?” It is an essential question to ask when trying to use pictures to explain the past.

      Take, for example, the Boston Tea Party, which occurred when angry colonists, dressed as American Indians, destroyed 342 chests of tea on December 16,
      1773 to protest recent tax hikes imposed by the British Parliament. For nearly a century, the only contemporary depictions of the reaction to the Boston Tea Party that the Library of Congress had to offer researchers were those created in England for a British audience. An example is the mezzotint print attributed to Philip Dawe, The Bostonians in Distress, which was published in London in the wake of the Intolerable Acts, which the British Parliament passed to punish Boston.

      The Bostonians in Distress, Attributed to Philip Dawe. Printed in London for R. Sayer and J. Bennett, Map & Printsellers, No. 53 Fleet Street, as the Act directs, 19 Novr. 1774. From the British Cartoon Prints Collection.
      //hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.19860

      One of the Intolerable Acts was the Boston Port Act, enacted by the British Parliament on March 31, 1774 which closed the port to everything except food and fuel. However, the print was published several months later in London, on December 16, 1774.

      When The Bostonians in Distress appeared on the British market, it reflected wishful thinking and may have served as pro-government propaganda to encourage the British
      populace to see the expense of military intervention in the colonies as effective and worthwhile. The British image shows a starving city surrounded on all sides by the British Army and Navy and depicts a few rough British sailors offering fish and kindling in exchange for “Promises” from the colonists. The cartoonist quotes Psalm 107, further giving the British god-like power over the transgressions of Massachusetts.

      In reality, the Boston Port Act united colonial tư vấn for the
      suspension of trade with Great Britain and led to the founding of the First Continental Congress, which met on September 1, 1774. By the time it disbanded on October 26, 1774, the leaders had organized resistance to the Intolerable Acts and issued the Declaration of Rights. Another notable sự kiện which occurred just before the publication of The Bostonians in Distress was the 1774 British election, a victory which gave the previous Prime Minister, Frederick, Lord North, another
      term.

      As a counterpoint, in 2022 the Library acquired a print produced in either Philadelphia or Tp New York and attributed to Henry Dawkins, Liberty triumphant; or the downfall of oppression, also printed in 1774.

      Liberty triumphant; or the downfall of oppression. Engraving by Henry Dawkins, circa 1774. //hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.50288

      This complicated cartoon shows the
      major players in the American conflict: the Sons of Liberty, the Loyalists, and the British, as if one were looking down from the far north, so that England is on the left and the American colonies on the right. Although there is no date of publication on the print, it refers to events that occurred between the Boston Tea Party and April 1774, and reflects the British and the American response to the Intolerable Acts.

      Dawkins offers some clues as to why he created his cartoon. Fame and
      Liberty, two allegorical figures in the upper right, celebrate the actions of the Sons of Liberty. On the left, the cartoonist places noted Philadelphia Loyalist, Dr. John Kearsley, in the clutches of Belzebub, a devil. Nearby boxes of tea that have been rejected by colonists, have returned to England. Across the ocean, America, represented as an American Indian woman, aims her arrow demanding that the Sons of Liberty help her maintain her freedom. The Sons of Liberty are feather-clad, a visual
      reference to the Boston Tea Party. The Loyalists, standing below the Sons of Liberty, are determined to behave as if they, too, did not want trade or tea from England. Most British prints fail to reflect the real division in the colonies; some people wanted to remain loyal to the crown but were under intense pressure to declare independence. Dawkins, on the other hand, understood the nuances between rebellion and conciliation in the British colonies in the continuum of reaction to the
      Intolerable Acts.

      Together, these two images tell part of the story of the reaction to the Boston Tea Party and the Intolerable Acts.
