Liberty's Kids: The Boston Tea Party
00:04:46 - 00:08:49

This clip illustrates the Boston Tea Party, a political protest by the Sons of Liberty. The Sons of Liberty explain their reason for the protest: they believe the taxes imposed by the British, such as the Sugar Act and the Stamp Act, are unfair, and they have no say in the law whatsoever. This clip also depicts the dumping of the tea at the Boston Harbor.
