ANSWER: See Answer
 
The Coercive Acts included a series of laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774, including Boston Port Act, the Massachusetts Government Act, the Administration of Justice Act, and the Quartering Act of 1774, which were meant to punish American colonies for throwing a large tea shipment into Boston Harbour, so,the passing of the Coercive Acts made reconciliation between Britain and her American colonies virtually impossible. The Stamp Act of 1765 was passed by Parliament of Great Britain to impose a direct tax on the colonies of British America. It was later repealed on March 18, 1766 after protest.
