234 Years Ago

The Boston Tea Party occurred 234 years ago on December 16th, a key event leading up to the American Revolution against England.

I'm not sure what it would take to move from our current federal income tax system, based on the sixteenth amendment ("The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.") back to a sales tax or flat tax approach.
