The British soldiers rushed through the streets late at night. They were ordered to capture any Indians that were involved that night. Fortunately none of the Indians were found. They then decided to close the ports as of this.
Here we see British soldiers guarding the port. They closed the ports of Boston, because the Rebels dumped all the tea into the water. This was one of the many ways they punished the Rebels.
