How about a spot of tea?

Well, things had not gotten any better, the Colonists were angry, then another tax, a tax on dare they!

On December 16, 1773 a group who called themselves the Sons of Liberty, dressed up like Indians[9] and went aboard ships docked in Boston Harbor.
[9] How convenient…

They then threw the shipments of tea overboard. They were clever ad dubbed this the Boston Tea Party.

The Boston Tea Party didn't exactly make the British happy[10]. They retaliated by issuing the Intolerable Acts, they were just intolerable. Some of these were the closing of Boston Harbor, all town officlials were appointed by the King, and allowed trials of royal officals be moved to England.

There was more and more anger on both sides, more British soldiers were present in the area and revolution was in the air.

[10] You know how people can get when they aren’t invited to parties
