The Sons of Liberty
The Sons of Liberty
While this may look like a silly question, it isn't. There was a very famous club in Boston in the 1960s and 1970s called the Boston Tea Party and some of the most famous rock… stars performed there. If that is what you are referring to (there is a recent book by Carter Alan that mentions Boston's role in rock history), the club took its name from the historical event during the run-up to the Revolutionary War. But if you are asking what the "Tea Party" has to do with the Boston Tea Party, the answer is not very much. The founders of the modern-day Tea Party are conservative Republicans (mostly) who believe the American government is out of control, much like the colonists believed the British government was. But there the similarities end. The claims of the modern-day Tea Party are mainly rhetorical and political, since the US government does provide for representation, we do have a democracy, and whether or not you like the current president, he was legally elected (twice). The Boston Tea Party referred to the belief by the colonists that England was taxing them and NOT giving them any representation in the British Parliament; that is certainly not the case today. You may not like the current government, but there are elections and there are opportunities to vote for different candidates than are serving in congress now. That was not possible during the era prior to the Revolutionary War.

Unofficial colonial groups were most responsible for the Boston Tea Party.
it wasn't a man, it was a group called the sons of liberty. Samuel Adams was the leader.
parliament passed the coercive acts
he placed the intolerable acts. They were the soldiers could house anywhere they wanted, the soldiers could be put on trial in Boston etc. etc.
The king ordered the Boston port to be closed to imports and exports till all the tea wasted was paid off.
ya that's why they call it Boston tea party
The Boston Tea Party was when between 30 and 130 men, some disguised as Mohawk Indians, boarded three different British Tea ships and dumped 342 chests of tea into the Boston …Harbor. This happened on December 16, 1773.
A group of indignant colonists, led by Samuel Adams , Paul Revere , and others, disguised as Native Americans.
They didn't dress up. This is part of the fable. The Boston Tea Party was a protest of the lowering of the cost of the British tea by the government and the East India tea com…pany who had gotten a bail out from the crown in 1773. The smugglers in the colonies found the Dutch tea that they sold was higher in price than the British tea, so they staged the Boston Tea Party and others in harbors in the colonies ( Hamilton was one of the largest smugglers in the colonies and a founding member of the Son's of Liberty). The cost of tea also went as far back as the Navigation Acts and the restricting of trade to and from the colonies passed from 1650-1733. Tea was also taxed in 1767 in the Townsend Acts.
They taxed the twice as much as before
