The Boston Tea Party happened as a result of “taxation without representation”. Basically Samuel Adams and the other leaders of the American colonists believed Britain was unfairly taxing them to pay for expenses from the French and Indian War. As an act of rebellion against the English government the colonists gave the English 20 days to take the tea back to England. After the days pass they dump the tea overboard.
