  • The colonial merchants called for a new boycott and the Daughters of Liberty issued a pamphlet that they'll part with their tea.
  • Then came the Boston Tea Party. Three ships arrived in the Boston Harbor. The royal governor refused to let the ships leave and ordered them to unload. The Sons of Liberty acted swiftly.
