The Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party took place on 16th December 1773. On this day some of the citizens of Boston disguised themselves as Indians and raided three British ships - the Dartmouth, the Eleanor and the Beaver - attempting to dock in Boston harbor. Many crates of tea were cast into the sea as a protest against the tax imposed on colonial tea and the fact that the British tea tax had been waived.

Incidentally before the Boston Tea Party uprising tea was more widely drank in the British Northern American colonies than coffee but after the uprising Americans considered drinking tea as an unpatriotic act.
