 The Boston Tea Party was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, Massachusetts that took place on the night of December 16, 1773. The demonstrators, some disguised as Mohawk Indians, in defiance of the Tea Act of 1773, destroyed an entire shipment of tea owned by the East India Company. They boarded three British tea ships and threw 342 chests of their tea into Boston Harbor. The British government responded harshly and the episode escalated into the American Revolution. The Tea Party became an iconic event of American history.
