The East India Tea Company is failing. We need to do something about it. The only option is to prevent other tea from being sold. The Tea Act is necessary; it's the colonies' turn to help us.
The Tea Act is unfair! We are taxed even though we don't get representation in Parliament! This is the definition of tyranny!
Not to mention, us merchants are going to go out of business, since we aren't allowed to sell tea anymore! What will we do?
As a Son of Liberty, I declare that it is time to REVOLT!
On December 16, 1773, 60 colonists dumped 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor.
Afterwards, the British Parliament passed the Intolerable Acts, one of which mandated the closing of Boston Harbor, eventually contributing to the American Revolution.
