I would like to start by saying that the Boston Tea Party started on December 16, 1773, and was an event when the American (future US) patriots dressed as Mohawk Indians to distract the British, then boarded the British ships of the East Indian Company and then would throw the British tea off the ship into the Atlantic Ocean. The Boston tea part meant that the Americans would throw off over 350 chests of Ceylon tea that would cost over 12 thousand British pounds. In the following essay I would like to speak about the events that preceded the Boston tea party and about the actual consequences of the Boston tea party.
One should remember that the event that preceded the Boston tea party was the French and Indian war that was extremely costly for the British Empire. In order to raise quick cash, the British king George III would increase taxes in the American colonies after the end of the war in 1763 (Wiegand, 89).
