Let's start throwing the crates over. Quickly now!
Cleaning up the ship
Make sure this ship is in pristine condition!
Throw your shoes over too
Three ships from london sailed into Boston Harbor. The colonist had made a plan to dump the tea into the harbor in response to being taxed on the tea. The colonists met at the wharf once the ships arrived to group up for boarding the ship. They asked the captain for the keys to the ship and he said ok, but asked the the boat be returned in it's original condition.
The colonists quietly boarded the ship. Working quickly in fear of an attack by Admiral Montague, they then started hitting the chests with axes and hatchets. After the crates were open they threw the tea into the harbor, along with the chests. A total of 342 chests of tea were dumped into a harbor that night.
Once all of the tea and chests were dumped into the harbor, they started to clean the ship like the captain asked. They threw their shoes overboard as an extra precaution to not be connected to their crime. They swept the boat. They made sure nothing was damaged and everything was put in it's place. Everyone was also checked to make sure that they did not steal any tea.
