Boston Tea Party

-The colonists accused the Tea Act of 1773 to be "'taxation without representation". They did not want to pay taxes toward a government that was not their own. The colonists were so outraged they demanded the ships to leave the port with tea still aboard. The ships refused to leave until the tea tax was paid.
