Answer: On this day in 1773, about 60 members of the Sons of Liberty disguised as Mohawk Indians boarded three ships carrying cargoes of British East India Company tea moored at Griffin’s Wharf. In a span of three hours, 342 chests of British East India Company Tea were smashed and dumped into Boston Harbor. Over 92,000 pounds of tea were destroyed and thrown into the harbor. The implication and impact of the Boston Tea Party were enormous; the event directly led to the sparking of the American Revolution.
