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.
