The American Revolution began in 1775 when the American colonists were tired of the British government forcing taxes on them.
The Boston Tea party was a political protest that occurred on December 16, 1773, at Griffin’s Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts. American colonists were mad at the British for imposing “taxation without representation” and dumped 342 chests of British tea into the harbour.
Get rid of all the tea!
