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
The 342 chests of tea were dumped in the Boston Harbor.
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.
This was the Americans way of protesting for the high taxes the British were charging on tea. There are many things that led them to this such as the stamp act.
