A key event in the American Revolution and the transformation of the British Empire.

The British colonials in America were forced to pay high prices for tea, due to the various taxes: there was also much smuggling of tea.

In the event a group of men, some in disguise, boarded three ships importing tea, and chucked the tea into the water.

Some of the tea chests were afterward recovered undamaged, and the people recovering them founded The Boston Tea Company, which still functions today[1].
