Nearly 350 chests of tea were dumped into Boston Harbor off of
British ships by Colonial patriots on this day in 1773. The patriots
were disguised as Indians. The act was to protest taxation without
representation and the monopoly the government granted to the
East India Company.

Two ships in a harbor, one in the distance. On board, men stripped to the waist and wearing feathers in their hair throw crates of tea overboard. A large crowd, mostly men, stands on the dock, waving hats and cheering. A few people wave their hats from windows in a nearby building.
