The Sons of Liberty
The Boston Tea Party
The Boston Tea Party was a protest against the British Tea Acts by The Sons Of Liberty in Boston. The British were once again trying to tax goods in the colonies whom had no say in the taxation itself. The colonists of Boston dressed up as Native Americans, boarded a merchant ship, and threw large crates of British tea into the harbor.
The Blarg Article
The Blarg Article was written by colonists explaining the injustice being forced against them. The Intolerable Acts of 1774 completely cut off Boston's Harbor which forced many families into starvation until they could pay the British for all the tea that was spilled into the harbor. These Acts also forced many families to house soldiers even in times of need. The Intolerable Acts were a British way of trying to gain power once again.
