Mickey's Boston Collection - The Brig Beaver II is an authentic replica of one of three ships involved in the famous Boston tea Party. On the night of December 16, 1773, American patriots boarded three merchant vessels in Boston Harbor and threw overboard 340 chests of tea to protest British "Taxation without Representation". As the first organized Colonial rebellion against the Mother Country, the Tea Party stands as "the most important event leading to the American Revolution". The Brig Beaver II and Boston Tea Party Museum are permanent exhibits at Congress Street Bridge.
