It was a clear demonstration of the colonists protests against taxation and their desire to protect thier rights as Englishmen to not be taxed without representation in parliament.

Colonists dumped tea into the harbor to show brits they werent going to be unfairly taxed..


They wiped out 2 species of fish found only in that harbor.

People of boston got tired of being taxed for tea, sugar, bunch of other stuff. They were being taxed by the king (in which they had left his country to be away from his rule) so they got fed up with it, threw tea into the harbor. Also, they wanted not only to not be taxed, but to claim a complete independance from the king. By being taxed, they were still under some sort of rule by the king. so, in return, the king set up a few laws such as the quebec act, boston harbor act ( think is what it is called) The boston harbor act basically prevented the harbor to be used at all, therefore they were not recieving any trade at all through boston(At the time, one of the colonies most important harbors for trade. big hit to the colonies) Also the quebec act basically claimed rule over canada...which basically is still true today. but don't worry, canada may get around to claiming their independance...eventually.

I thought it was to protect thier rights as englishmen as they still considered themselve to be Englishmen and it wasn't until their hand was forced that independance was considered. The American Revolution was really a rather conservative affair.

Actually, they claimed citizenship to their state more than they did any country. Infact, it was like that untill after the civil war

There are lots of different perceptions of it really. That was just one example.

the brits were being dickheads so we showed them how it's done by dumping their most prized possessions in the ocean. To this day, british hate americans for it.
