During the colonial years the colonists faced obstacles that were a consequence of the colonistsreactions one of them being the Tea Act The Tea Acts was passed by the British parliament in 1773 The British gives the East India Company special concessions in the colonial tea business and shuts colonial tea merchants The act was not intended to raise taxes in the colonies but actually to not change anything about taxes It was arranged to help out the East India Company which was plunged into debt and was in a financial difficulty with eighteen million pounds of unsold tea As help on paying off this debt the tea was to be shipped back to the colonies and sold at an unfair price The American colonists in Philadelphia and New York turned the tea ships back to Britain after finding out about the unfair trades In Charleston the cargo was left to rot on the docks because the colonists refused to be taken advantage by the British In Boston the Governor held the ships in port where the colonists would not allow them to unload Many cargo ships full of tons of tea filled the harbor After the colonists came up together and thought about rebelling against the government So this was where the Boston Tea Party began As a response the dressed as Mohawk Indians and threw three hundred and forty two bags of tea in the ocean dressed up as Mohawks so that nobody would figure out that they were the colonists Then soon enough one person turned himself in and they figured out who participated in the Boston Tea Party The Boston Tea Party was a good thing for the colonists It showed them that they dont have to put up with the Britishs biased actions Hence the Tea Act war was a wakeup call for the colonists to finally rise up
