Little did the men who took part in the Boston Tea Party know that it was a pivotal point in the history of the United States.  Back in 1773, Boston was part of the British colonies.  America was ruled by Britain and had to pay taxes to the government.  And yet, the colonists felt that England was not being fair to the colonists.  One thing the colonists imported from England was tea.  Oh how the colonists loved their tea.  But England started putting a huge tax on it so the price of tea went way up.  The colonists decided to boycott the tea from England which made the government really angry.  The Boston Tea Party was to show the colonists displeasure with the taxes.  But it did more than that.  It started the American Revolution.
SUBJECTS:     Boston Tea Party, 1773.
