The Boston Tea Party

Boston MA December 16, 1773

Thomas Hutchinson

Samuel Adams

Colonists disguised themselves as Indians.

British East India Co. had 17 million pounds of unsold tea, so British government gave them complete monopoly of the American tea buisiness.

This MA governer ordered the British tea ships to remain in the harbor until the tea was all sold. He was disgusted by the colonists acts in the Boston Tea Party and returned to England permanently following the incident.

Adams was a leading spirit in the Boston Tea Party.

In reaction to the Boston Tea Party, Parlaiment passed the Intolerable Acts including the Boston Port Act.

About 100 colonists boarded the British tea ships. They opened and dumped 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor.

Though tea prices were lower, the colonists were angered by this attempt to trick Americans to accept unjust taxation by the British.

The colonists were angered by the "taxation without representation".

The Boston Tea Party is one of the main incidents that sparked America's rebellious spirit against Britain.
