We are tired of this!!! We cannot afford these ridiculous taxes!
Calm down! We will figure out something to do about the outrageous taxes.
Lets dump the tea into the Boston Harbor. What do you all think?
The colonist are gathered in a town hall discussing the current taxation issues from Britain. Britain is raising taxes because of their debt with the French and Indian War. The colonist are not happy and think that they should have to pay the taxes.
this is outrageous.
We will be living here from now on until we decide to leave. You have no choice.
The Sons of liberty have gathered in the same town hall later that night to discuss a plan of attack against the British tax on tea.
On December 16, 1773, the Sons of Liberty dressed up as native americans and boarded upon 3 British tea ships. This group dumped 18,000 pounds of tea leaves into the Boston Harbor.
In Reaction to the Boston Tea Party the British parliament passed the Intolerable acts, as punishment, which included having to home british soldiers any time they pleased.
In addition to the Intolerable Acts being passed, it unified the colonist and caused them to work against the British Government.
Many years later, the colonist fought for what they believed in and never gave up or lost sight of their dreams. The colonist ended up winning Independence, and today we are still free!
