Hazard, Colonial Children New York: Macmillan, 1902. Aurora Subway Map The Boston Port Act 1774 The Boston Port Act was the first of five so-called Intolerable Aurora Subway Map Acts passed by British Parliament to punish Boston for its famous Tea Party. Through this act, the port of Boston was closed to all commerce, except for food and fuel. Reopening the port was predicated on payment of damages sustained by the East India Company and all other losses resulting from the riots of 1773 and 1774.

March 31, 1774 WHEREAS dangerous commotions and insurrections have been fomented and raised in the town of Boston, in the province of Massachuset’s Bay, in New England, by divers ill-affected persons, to the subversion of his Majesty’s government, and to the utter destruction of the publick peace, and good order of the said town; in which commotions and insurrections certain valuable cargoes of teas, being the property of the East India Company, and on board certain vessels lying within the bay or harbour of Boston, were seized and destroyed: And whereas, in the present condition of the said town and harbour, the commerce of his Majesty’s subjects cannot be safely carried on there, nor the customs payable to his Majesty duly collected; and it is therefore expedient that the officers of his Majesty’s customs should be forthwith removed from the said town.
