Boston Tea Party: The start of the American Revolutionary War

The Boston Tea Party marked the beginning of the American Revolutionary War, which finally lead to the United States of America getting its independence from being a British colony.
It all started in 1773 in Massachusetts when Thomas Hutchinson, the Royal Governer refused to remove the tax and return taxed tea back to Britain even though the Americans asked that tax only be levied by elected representatives.
To show their discontent, revolutionaries threw the tea into the Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773.
