Transcript of Tea Act
Jessika LeMaster Tea Act Colonists worried that the British East India Company would monopolize the tea industry. Some colonists were for it, and the others... not so much.
On November 1773, Three ships carrying British tea arrived in the Boston Harbor. The sons of liberty demanded that ships leave immediately. Beginning of the Boston Tea Party The Boston Tea Party On the night of December 16, colonists disguised, as Native Indians, snuck on to the three tea-filled ship. The Tea Act was officially passed on May 10, 1773. It made tea cheaper so colonists would stop smuggling tea. The smugglers feared that this act would put them out of business. The Tea Act gave the British East India Company full power over the tea industry in thr colonies. This way, the company would sell tea for a cheaper price and stop smuggling. Parliament knew that the colonists wanted tea no matter what. Colonists started smuggling in tea from Britain after taxes were placed on tea. The Colonists threw over 342 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor to show their protest over the monopolization of the tea industry. The Beginning http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwEX_YVyAS4
