In 1773 The Boston Tea Party was the colonists' protest against taxes without representation in Parliment. The king gave a tax on tea to the East India trading company which angered the colonists because they couldn't get tea from anywhere else. Because of this, the colonists dressed up as Native Americans and dumped tead into the Boston Harbor.
