Tea ship emptied

The boston massacre just happened but great Britan won't stop they just passed the tea act. The tea act made it so goods like tea would get taxed even more. But the taxed tea was cheaper than smugggled tea. Still the colonistis didn't want to pay tax to Britan. They thought it was highly unfair for Britan to tax them without there thought. To get back they held the boston tea party were they threw tea into the ocean. This happened during December 16, 1773. This Act shocked the British and made it so colonistis have to quarter soldiers. They also ended town meetings and gave Britan more control. This is why in the Bill of rights one of the amendements is that we don't quarter people anymore.
