The Destruction of Tea at Boston Harbor

The Destruction of Tea at Boston Harbor

On December 16, 1773 a group of colonist that called themselves the Sons of Liberty dressed themselves in Indian disguises, boarded a ship belonging to the East India Company and through the barrels of tea the ship was delivering into the Boston harbor ruining the tea.  The group was upset because the tea had recently been taxed without their agreement.  Their non violent action was a political protest designed to show their displeasure with the British government.  The government then took action that would ultimately lead to the American Revolution.  Monday will be the 240 anniversary of this historic event.
