*Indian war cry screech*
The Destruction of the Tea
The Patriots were tired of being taxed for basically everything from stamps, sugar, and know tea. Led by Sam Adams, they banded together and made a plan. They decided to revolt against the British taxing by dressing up as Mohawk Native Americans, and destroying the British tea.
The Patriots prepare to board the ship, only armed with axes. they only plan to destroy the tea. They will not loot anything, even the tea. They chopped open the crates with there axes and dumped the tea into the Harbor. The British Forces did not resist.
The Patriots end up destroying about 46 tons of tea. This costed the East India Company 9,659 stones. Later England will pass the Intolerable Acts for punishment of this act. This will lead to later revolt and later, the Revolutionary War.
