A Tea Party?... I don't think So

martes, 4 de mayo de 2010

Colonists were upset with taxes levied by Parliament, specially for the Tea. They wanted to have representation in the parliament. Colonists started doing boycotts to British Products; so they started buying smuggled Dutch Tea. Britain decided to decrease tea price, it will be less than Dutch tea even with the tax; but colonists refused to buy it.

On December 16, 1773, after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor. This was the beggining of the Revolution.
