The British parliament only allowed colonists to buy tea from them,but they put a tax on the tea so the colonists started to get really angry and refused to buy the tea.
The colonists did not want to pay the tax for the tea so they sent the three ships back to England. The Sons of Liberty had no other option but to destroy the tea so they dumped it in the sea.
They dumped 342 chest of dried tea of 90,000 pounds which was worth a lot. In our time that would be 1 million dollars.
Thomas Gage sent 700 British soldiers to arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock, but they did not know that the colonists were watching them so the colonists put 1 lamp in the church tower to warn that they were moving by land
the colonists warned them so when the soldiers would arrive then the colonists would be prepared. The solders went through concord to take their ammunition because they thought that the colonists would run away.
The British were losing a lot of troops so they retreated on the North Bridge,but more militias joined the colonists so the British were defeated
