  • British Parliament assigned a special monopoly on trade for the British East India Company to try and help with their financial struggles.
  • The government adjusted import duties so then the company can undersell anyone in the colonies. New York, Philadelphia, and Charleston didn’t accept the tea, but Boston wouldn’t stand down.
  • On December 16th, 1773, 150 disguised patriots pretending to be Native American, boarded three ships and overthrown 342 chests of tea.
