The colonists were furious with the tea act which lead up to a big argument with the British.
All the conflict was happening in Boston, Massachusetts on December 16th, 1773!
The main cause for the Boston Tea Party was a political protest trying to target the tea act due to the act allowing other people outside of America sell tea without taxes.
The people that were involved in the Sons Of Liberty and the colonists that were living in the area.
What happened that night was American patriots got onto ships that were sent by East India companies and threw chests of tea off the ships and into the water.
The immediate outcome would be that the harbor got shut down and they had to pay back all the 340 chests of tea. Weighing over 46 tons and coming to a cost of 1 million dollars today.
