All of you guys will be checked for tea in your pockets.
Cleaning up Afterwards
I'm so glad that we are done cleaning up!
It looks spottless.
The guys dressed as Indians finished up their jobs of throwing the tea into the ocean. They disagreed with the Tea Act; therefore, they threw it all into the ocean. They knew after they threw the tea in, that they would be checked for smuggling. They were willing to face anything to prove their point.
Not much was attempted to be smuggled. Only one guy tried to steal some tea, but he did not get away with it. They were very specific on how they checked each man. They feared that they would damage tea; fortunately they did not.
After the event, each person helped clean up. They swept and mopped untill the place was spottless. The men made sure each packet of tea that was left behind was put back in its proper place. They examined the tea to make sure there was no damage.
