On December 16, 1773, a group of about 70 men dressed as indians boarded on three British ships in the Boston harbor and threw their tea cargo in the sea. The destruction of the tea cargo was a protest against the Tea Act.
The Boston Massacre was a deadly riot that occurred on March 5, 1770, on King Street in Boston. The American settlers were screaming and yelling at the redcoats and threw a rock which frightened one who fired the shot heard around the world.
In response to the boston tea party britain passed the Intolerable acts. The acts took away self-governance and historic rights of Massachusetts, triggering outrage and resistance in the Thirteen colonies. They were key developments in the outbreak of the American Revolution war in 1775.
