Storyboard Text

  • The tea came into the Boston Harbor
  • Boston Harbor a teapot tonight!
  • "Rally Mohawks! Bring out your axes and tell King George, we'll pay no taxes!".
  • In 1773, The Committees of Correspondence began to write about the Tea Act. The Tea Act stated that only one British company (The East Indian Company) would be aloud to sell tea to the colonies.
  • The sons of liberty dressed up as Mohawks and they rowed out to the ships shouting "Boston Harbor a teapot tonight!".
  • The sons of liberty took out their axes and broke the crates of tea because of the Tea Act. The colonists were singing "Rally Mohawks! Bring out your axes and tell King George, We'll pay no taxes!". This became known as the "Boston Tea Party".
