The Boston Tea Party

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE BOSTON TEA PARTY

The Boston Tea Party happened because colonists were mad because they had to pay a tax on tea. Up to 60 colonists dressed up as Native Americans. They dumped more than 300 chests of tea into the cold Boston harbor. The colonists were punished and had to pay a tax on the tea that was ruined. I bet the colonists were really mad.

WHERE AND WHEN THE BOSTON TEA PARTY HAPPENED

The Boston Tea party happened on December 16,1773. It took place in the snowy Boston Massachusetts.
