... amous Boston Tea Party expressed the dislike of British rule. All of the tea, which had been left on the merchant ships, was dumped into the Boston Harbor in response to the tax on tea. Of course, Parliament could not allow this type of rebellion; the destruction of property, to go unpunished, so a new set of laws was created. The news of the Boston Tea Party reached Parliament in early 1774. The members of Parliament, as well as King George III, were outraged. There was no way that this display of disobedience by the colonists was going to go unpunished.
