The Boston Tea Party was an act of sabotage against British fiscal policy that favoured East India Company over American com­pa­nies. On the night of December 16, 1773, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty boarded three ships in the Boston harbour dis­guised as Mohawks, and threw 342 chests of tea over­board. Today the tea de­stroyed would be valued at over $1m. The actions even­tu­al­ly led to American Rev­o­lu­tion.
