What happened in December of 1773 in the Boston Harbor is known as one of the most important events in the history of the USA. It was on this night that a group of colonists became enraged, inspired and ultimately reacted to unfair taxation laws by throwing more than 300 crates of tea into the harbor. The Boston Tea Party took place on December 16, 1773—and now you can travel back in time to be a part of all the action.
