A colony is a country/area that is ruled by another country. We have 13 colonies they are, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.
"No taxation without representation" means the colonists are not paying the taxes. The colonists got mad about the taxes and stamp act that they decided to cut down a doll and seit it on fire because they were so mad.
The Boston Tea party was on December 16, 1773. The colonists dressed up like Indians and they dumped the British's tea in the Boston harbor. The colonists that dressed up like Indians participated in the Boston Harbor. They dumped the tea in the Boston Harbor because they didn't want to pay tax on tea so they took all of their tea and dumped it in the Boston Harbor.
