Storyboard Text

  • Tea was the colonists favorite beverage, and when the crates arrived on the boats, the shops would be refilled with the sweet drink.
  • Suddenly, on May 10th, 1773 the Tea Act passed by parliament, which gave the East Indian Tea Company a "monopoly" on the tea sales, but only in the American Colonies. The colonists where very unhappy with this.
  • Most colonists where extremely upset and mad about this new tax on tea, so they decided to stop buying it.
  • Trying to be clever, the parliament reduced the price of tea, while giving the struggling East India Colony a monopoly on the tea sales. However, the colonists did not fall for the parliaments trick.
  • When the ships arrived with crates full of the sweet drink, they where not aloud to unload the tea. The tea would be put away for 3 years in a warehouse until it would later be sold to the revolution. So, one day on December 16th, 1773 a few angry colonists disguised as Mohawk Indians boarded the ships on the Boston harbor, destroying 92,000 pounds of tea.
  • All these conflicts between the colonists and parliament began sparking the revolutionary war.
