Listen to the text for the first time. For each statement, tick whether it is true or false or whether there is nothing said about it in the text.
true false not in the text This episode of “Milestones in American History” deals with the Boston Tea Party. Walter Peabody wrote a book about famous American tea drinkers. Mr Peabody says that the colonists had to pay taxes because of the debts of the British Crown due to wars with the French and the Native Americans. The wars had been so expensive because they had been going on for so long. The slogan “no taxation without representation” meant that colonists were not willing to pay taxes unless they could send their own politicians to the parliament in London. The colonists’ reaction to the taxes was a boycott of tea sold by the British West India Company. The tea company then tried to sell its tea from China with the help of smugglers. Because of the Tea Act the company finally could offer the tea even cheaper than the smugglers. The price for tea was even cheaper than that for beer in those days. The three famous ships which were lying in Boston Harbor in December 1773 were the Beaver, the Dartmouth and the Eleanour. The Sons of Liberty were a group of Native Americans who fought for more independence from the Crown. The incident is called the “Boston Tea Party” because the tea-leaves turned the water in the harbour into tea.
