The Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party occurred on December 16 1770. This event revealed just how confident the British assumed they were. They were determined to drop off their tea in Boston despite who opposed their decision. This furiated the Bostonians. So, they decided to dress up as Native Americans and sneek on the British's ship. Once the Bostonians arrived on the ship, they took it upon themselves to throw the supply of tea overboard.

In response to the Bostonians' behavior, the British planned to punish , not only Boston, but all of Massachusetts. Their response led to the establishment of the Intolerable Acts. The governor, at the time, Thomas Hucthenson, could not tolerate Boston any longer.
