Abstract

December 16, 1773, upset with the taxes on Tea, colonists dressed as Native Americans and threw barrels of tea into the Boston Harbor. Was the Boston Tea Party a positive step for the people of Boston and of the colony of Massachusetts? Or was it an overreaction to a reasonable act enacted by the British? Did the colonists really have it that bad that a revolution needed to be started? Was it worth the establishment of the Coercive Acts?
