Boston Tea Party

The event of the Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party took place in Boston, Massachusetts in Decemeber 16, 1773. The ones that were involved were about 30 to 60 patriots dreesed up as Indians. The people dumped 342 chests of tea into the sea. They did this in December in 1773. The event took place at Griffin's Wharf and they did this because the men were upset with the taxation of the tea and the governers refused to return the tea back to England.
