The Boston Tea Party

The colonist were unhappy because the tea was at a very high price. The colonist dressed as Native Americans and dumped all three hundred chests of tea. This happened in 1773 at the Boston Harbor.

The Boston Port Act

There is something called the Boston Port Act. This closed the Boston harbor for trading until the payments were made for the lost tea. Even though the new laws were for Massachusetts they made the Thirteen colonies want to work together to end the British Rule. Representatives from each colony met to protest the laws. This was called The First Continental Congress.
