“No Taxation Without Representation”
The Boston Tea Party was a raid by American colonist on three British ships in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773. The colonists determined not to pay taxes to the British government. A band of citizens disguised as Mohawk Indians threw the contents of 342 chests of tea into the bay (approximately $1 million worth in today’s dollars). This was one of the incidents that lead to the Revolutionary War in America.
