At the Old South Meetinghouse, a group of fed-up men decided that enough was enough. They would no longer sit silent while they were unfairly taxed. The group left the Old South Meetinghouse and walked to meet a ship carrying a shipment of tea. They proceeded to dump the tea into the Boston Harbor in an act of rebellion that would become known as the Boston Tea Party.
