On December 16, 1773, after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor.
A group of 30 to 130 men boarded the three vessels and dumped all 342 chests of tea into the water. The Boston Tea Party was a key event in the growth of the American Revolution.
