  • More commonly known today as the Boston tea party, but that phrase was not in widespread use until the 1830s, as part of a larger cultural movement to identify what were essentially violent mob actions of the 1770s as founding events and convey an aura of gentility. The eighteenth-century term for the event was not really standardized either, but this phrase was commonly used to describe it.
