What are the names of the Intolerable acts?

There were 5 Intolerable (AKA Coercive) Acts: Boston Port Act--closed port of Boston until colonists paid East India Company back for the lost tea Massachusetts Government Act--brought government of Massachusetts under British rule, stationed British governor in Massachusetts, limited town meetings to one per year Administration of Justice Act--gave accused British officers the right to move the trial to their home country (England) Quartering Act--forced colonists to open their homes to British soldiers and feed and house them for an indefinite amount of time Quebec Act--not related to Boston Tea Party, and therefore sometimes exclused from list of Coercive Acts; enlarged "Province of Quebec" and let people freely practice Roman Catholicism

How did the intolerance act strengthen the unity among the thirteen colonies?

The Intolerable Acts helped unite the colonists. It helped unite them because the colonists supported Boston. The committees of correspondence spread the news of the Intolerable Acts. People from other colonies responded quickly to help the people of Boston, who faced hunger while the port was closed. This was partially because of the Boston Tea Party.

What happened on march 5?

On March 5th, 1770, a group of boys threw snow balls to tease British soldiers who were stationed in Boston. As the crowd grew and became more high-spirited, the soldiers fired into the crowd of people and killed 5 Americans.

How long was the Boston harbor closed by king Henry the third?

It was King George III you're thinking of here. :) The Boston Port Act was enacted March 31, 1774, and was supposed to be enforced until Boston had paid restitution for the tea destroyed in the Boston Tea Party. As the main source of trade and commerce for Massachusetts, this Act did not go over well, as you can imagine. The Siege of Boston followed shortly afterward, and British General Thomas Gage occupied Boston, and the British used the Boston Port to bring in their own war supplies and troops. The following March, the Continental Army drove the British out of Boston, and March 17 is now celebrated as Evacuation Day. So, to answer your question, just barely under a year.
