December 16: On the night of December 16, 1773, the assembly of protest in the Old South Meeting House in Boston was the largest seen before. It is estimated that about 8000 people attended. The Boston Tea Party started with the Sons of Liberty.

Before it should be landed tea, the Sons of Liberty (according to sources, between 60 and 150 people) disguised as Mohawk Indians, left the great assembly of protest and went to the dock Griffin, where the Dartmouth were and newborn Beaver arrived and Eleanour.

Over 50 colonists got dressed up as Mohawk Indians and snuck onto a ship that had tea. The colonists were mad and grabbed all the tea and through it all in the harbor to make a point about taxes. They tossed 342 crates of tea into Boston Harbor which was worth about 15,000 euros. This made Great Britain mad so they made punishment laws called the Intolerable Acts.

Quickly and efficiently, armed with axes and knives, intimidated the sailors and rose tea boxes hold the cover (reasonable evidence that some of the "Indians" were indeed dockworkers). They opened the boxes and threw the tea overboard.

In the Boston Tea Party of 1773, some American colonists destroyed tea to protest a British tax.

On Tuesday December 16, 1773 was held in Boston, Massachusetts, the Boston Tea Party called (in English: Boston Tea Party) ?, in which he jumped into the sea a whole shipment of tea. It was an act of protest by American colonists against Britain and is considered a forerunner of the American Revolutionary War.

The rebellion of the settlers in the port of Boston was born as a result of the approval by Britain in 1773 the Tea Act, which taxed the importation into the metropolis of different products, including tea, to benefit the British East India Company eastern settlers who boycotted buying tea from the Netherlands.

What a party!
