may 10, 1773 - The Tea Act

Description:

The Tea Act wasn't created to anger the colonists. It was meant to give the East India company a monopoly on tea in the American colonies. They were able to bypass wholesalers and sell straight to the consumers. This made colonial merchants earn less money and angered them, leading to rebellion.
