Boston Tea Party - Act of Defiance

Tired of too-many taxes imposed on them by Britain's Parliament - in which they had no representation - American colonists in Boston decided they would stage an act of defiance. 

Selecting a product which they loved - tea - which was still taxed (despite strong protests against it), colonials disguised themselves as Mohawks and dumped 342 containers of imported tea into Boston Harbor.

In this clip, the story is told in animated fashion.
