Where did the Boston Tea Party take place?
The Boston Tea Party took place in Boston Harbor.
Why did the colonist do this?
The colonist knew that their rights were being violated and wanted their freedoms back.
They also thought it was very unfair to tax tea and other paper and clothing being taxed too.They said they had no part in the war. So, why should they pay money to King George 111 to pay up the cost of the French and Indian War?

How did the colonists feel?
The colonist felt very disturbed and exasperated by King George and his taxes. They were being taxed for paper, paint, clothes, and glass. Now they were taxed on tea. They couldn't take it anymore. Tea was a very common everyday beverage for the British.
So, since they started boycotting tea , They decided not to make the British tea arrive in Boston. They dress as Native Americans and boarded their ship. Then, threw 342 tea chest of board. But King George 111 repealed the tax. But, the colonist were punished for what they did. they had to pay back the money of 346 tea chest. Then put another tax on the colonist which made them even more angrier. But the colonist joined together and fought for their freedom.

King George 111 didn't care what the colonists thought about the taxing. He just wanted the colonist to obey his rules no matter what!
