The Boston Tea Party was a protest against taxes imposed on tea and other goods by the Parliament in England without approval of the colonial legislatures
Being that the Boston Tea Party happened in 1773, there were many events that led up to this event. Massachusetts had been enduring the intolerable acts and suffering under t…he many taxes that were imposed by the parliament of King George III. These taxes and other very unjust laws were putting the citizens at great unrest, but they for the most part did not consider revolution at this time. For the American colonists, Anglicization, the ideology that means acting more like English people, had taken affect and colonists didn't want to revolt, but to simply be included in the governing of the British Empire. Another very important event that led up to the Boston Tea Party was the Boston Massacre. This act was widely publicized, making the British soldiers seem inhuman in their acts, even though they were being viciously attacked by Boston residents. All in all, the general unrest of the Colonists stemmed from the Seven Years War (French and Indian War). This war shifted British policy toward what would eventually lead to the Revolution, even though the Colonists were becoming Anglicized at the same time. An incident that led to the Boston Tea Party was the Sugar Tax that the British imposed.
Because American colonists threw British tea into the Boston harbor. It is just an ironically funny name that stuck.
The Sons of Liberty Some of the famous names of the Sons of Liberty were Samuel Adams and Benjamin Franklin.
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 company 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.
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.
