The Bosten Tea Party
The Bay of Tea
On December, 1773 a group of colonist from Boston dressed as Mohawk Indians dumped 342 chests of tea in the Boston Harbor to protest the taxes. The Britain had treated the colonists unfairly and put taxes on the tea! Not only tea, they put taxes on other goods such as sugar, molasses, and paper goods. They were called the Sugar Act, Tea Act, and the Stamp Act. About 60 colonists dumped the tea using axes. Some colonists jumped or the ship and broke the chests so none of the tea were taken back by the Britain.
