The Boston Tea Party (referred to in its time simply as "the destruction of the tea" was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, a city in the British colony of Massachusetts, against the tax policy of the British government and the East India Company that controlled all the tea imported into the colonies.
The Destruction of the Tea (better known as the Boston Tea Party) was a historical event that took place in the eighteenth century when three ships Dartmouth, Eleanor, and Beaver came into Boston harbor to deliver tea from Eastern India. Since the Bostonians were taxed on the tea, a group of local Bostonian rebels dumped the tea from the ships into Boston Harbor. This event eventually started the American Revolution.

Paul Revere, the folk hero of the American Revolution whose dramatic horseback ride on the night of April 18, 1775 warning Boston-area residents that the British were coming, was immortalized in a ballad by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Revere was mainly distinguished in the colonial era as a master silversmith -- a craft he learned from his father, Apollos Rivoire, a Huguenot refugee who changed his name to Revere in the New World. To support his large family, the versatile and energetic craftsman also made surgical instruments, sold spectacles, replaced missing teeth, and engraved copper plates, the most famous of which portrayed his version of the Boston Massacre.
The Boston Tea Party took place on Sunday December 16, 1773. The event in total took about 2-3 hours. A group of local Bostonians known as "The Sons of Liberty" dressed up as Mohawk Indians and once the ship was docked, they stormed aboard it. Once aboard they flung all of the tea boxes over the edge into the ocean where it all sank to the bottom, gone forever. In total, almost 350 boxes (40 tons) of British owned tea was lost that night. The action was a message to the Brits', that the locals were not going to stand there acts any longer and certainly would not stand for "taxation without representation".
I have received intelligence that three ships that appear to be British are going to dock in our harbor. Within them lies the substance that we taxpayers in Boston find an abomination to our financial well-being and our stand as a civilization; Tea. This tea is soon going to be our financial downfall unless we take action immediately. We will not comply to such foolishness that has been brought upon us by these three ships. We will up rise and do what is right for the sake of Boston. December 16, 1773. . . . .
