The Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party was on December 16, 1773. It was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty.The demonstrators destroyed a shipment of tea sent by the East India Company, in defiance of the Tea Act. They threw the chests of tea into Boston Harbor, ruining the tea. The British government responded harshly and the episode escalated into the American Revolution
