The Boston Tea Party

When, Where and Why?

The Boston Tea Party took place in Boston on the month of December 1773. This event happened because the king of England put taxes on Colonists. The colonists got very angry at him and they decided to get Payback on the King by doing this act. The king put these taxes on them because he needed money because he spent so much on the French and Indian war!
