on December 16, 1773, Samuel Adams organized a group of men called the Sons of Liberty. They dressed up as Mohawk Indians. They boarded three ships in the Boston Harbor and threw 342 chests of tea overboard. It took nearly three hours to accomplish this. The British Parliament passed the Tea Act on April 27, 1773 which was a import tax and it raised the price of tea to three cents per pound on all tea sent to America.
The Stamp Act was passed by the British Parliament on March 22, 1765. The new tax was forced on all American colonists and required them to pay a tax on every piece of printed paper they used.

Jamestown increased in its defenses. The indian that had warned him (pace) his name was not recorded at all in any way of the accounts. Though legend have named him “chanco”, it might be misidentification. During the Powhatan surprise attack, the tribes attacked a bunch of their smaller communities, also including Henricus and their college for children of natives and settlers. At Martin’s Hundred, they’ve killed way more than half of their population in Wolstenholme Towne where just two houses and part of a church were left still standing.all, the Powhatan tribe killed about four hundred colonists (a third of the population) and they also took 20 women in as captives, Their captives lived their lives and worked hard and tried to be good Powhatan Indians until they died or their ransom took place.
The Second Tea Party was not just fun and games like it sounds. The Tea Party happened because of the tea that came to the harbor on March 6th 1774. The colonists were very angry about the ship coming back with tea that was under the same tax that made them rebel less than 4 months earlier. Yet the driver of the ship, Fortune, still thought it would be a great idea to bring back the tea with the tax. John Adams said “Twenty Eight Chests of Tea arrived Yesterday, which are to make an Infusion in Water, at 7 o 'Clock this Evening.” (Browsing).
The Night of the Boston Tea Party I am about to talk about my grandfather John, he was in the Boston Tea party. He blames the Loyalist because of their unfair taxes, unfair rules, and think they have the blame for the Boston Tea Party. He was the bravest Patriot I knew. So without further ado this is my grandfather's journey through the Boston Tea Party. It was December 16, 1773 John was talking about how he did not like the British taxes and laws to his wife Mary.
In spite of this, the militias continued on their path to toward Concord Bridge where a battle was fought and the British would be forced to withdraw. The British lost 300 men killed, wounded, or missing. With these many casualties for the British, it was safe to say that no petition was going to sort out what went down at Lexington and Concord. The Americans tried anyways and desperately, with an attempt to restore peace, The Olive Branch Petition was adopted by Congress and sent directly to King George III. The king refused to read the petition and patriots realized Parliament was acting with the knowledge and royal support.
Tea Act, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company from bankruptcy by greatly lowering the tea tax it paid to the British government After the Stamp act was passed the colonists did not sit there with thier arms crossed. The colonists decided that they needed to fight back. On December 16, 1773, a group of most likely 70 men boarded on three British ships in the Boston harbor, disguised as Mohawk Indians . The men decided to take British tea cargo and throw into the sea. The tea cargo was schockingly worth 18,000 pounds.
In June of 1775, 2,400 British soldiers met 1,600 militia members at Breed 's Hill. While the battle took place at Breed 's Hill, it 's famously called the Battle of Bunker Hill. In the middle of the night the militia members quietly set up at at Breed 's Hill. This forced the British to battle uphill. While it seems like the colonists had all the advantages, they ended up losing because they were extremely low on ammunition.
The Boston Tea Party took place on December 16, 1773, and was led by Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty. It resulted in 342 boxes, more than 92,000 pounds of tea, being thrown into Boston Harbor. That is worth almost 1,000,000 dollars today!!!!! It is estimated that hundreds took part in the Boston Tea Party, but many were afraid to be punished for participating and took their secret to the grave. To date 116 people are documented to have participated.
6 months after they declared independance from Britian they are running low on artillery and and men. George Washington had once 6000 men and now had close to a little over 2000 men left.

They lose at least 10 men in the fight with only 3 British Soldiers killed.
Last night on February 4, 1787, General Benjamin Lincoln attacked members of the Shays’ Rebellion, and successfully captured 150 of the rebels.

The Boston Tea Party was a major event in history that occurred on December 16, 1773 in Boston, Massachusetts (which tomorrow, by the way, is the 242nd anniversary, so it is a bit ironic that my paper is due on its anniversary). On the night of the 16th, 100 Bostonians disguised themselves as Indians under the leadership of the Sons of Liberty, smashed a total of 342 tea chests in a span of three hours that had been delivered into the harbor, and had dumped the contents of the chest into the Atlantic Ocean. The Bostonians that had disguised themselves as Mohawks smartly and conveniently avoided detention by the officials that would have caught them and horribly punished them. Their dressing up as Mohawk Indians symbolized that the Sons
The colonists had to act fast. One night, a group of colonists dressed up as Native Americans. They called themselves the Sons of Liberty. They borded three ships and dumped all the tea on bored into the harbor. Then, they marched through the streets of Boston.
Exercise 7-13 I have to announce everyone in the group that we will not be able to meet the June 1 commitment to ship 100 operating tables to Southeast Surgical Supplies. To be clear, we only have 30 tables on hand as a report of this morning. However, this is not our fault entirely. Six months ago, purchasing warned us about shrinking supplies and suggested we buy as much as we could in advance for the next 12 months. We tried to follow their advice, but we were never be able to buy supplies in advance due to company’s policy about never buying more than three months worth of materials in advance.
It was March 22, 1765, and my father had gotten word of the new law at work today. He worked as a merchant, and when he had gotten a new shipment of paper learned that Great Britain now put a tax on every document of paper in the US. Great Britain was in a financial drought because of the French and Indian war, and had resorted to taxing us for their faults. The law did not benefit Americans at all, only the British. He grew more furious still.
