The Fiddler

Alistair Flush, Military Historian

The British may have sat around for three hours doing nothing while colonists dunked East India Company tea into the harbor, but they didn’t wait long to react after the last tea leaf drowned.  While walking away from the wharf the partygoers heard British Admiral Montague yell, “"Well boys, you have had a fine, pleasant evening for your Indian caper, haven’t you? But mind, you have got to pay the fiddler yet!” The fiddler was British Parliament.  The song they played was the Intolerable Acts.

The Intolerable Acts included the Massachusetts Government Act, Administration of Justice Act, Boston Port Act, and the Quartering Act.  Phineas will go over these one by one in the following days.
