Storyboard Text

  • That Evening
  • We'll show those British rats!
  • At the Wharf
  • These taxes are ridiculous!
  • Dump the Tea!!
  • Ready for Action
  • How about that you British?!!
  • George Hewes  has prepared for the dumping of the tea in the Boston harbor. He has dressed like an Indian, and put black dust on his hands and face. George is armed with a small hatchet, a tomahawk, and a club. Hewes is ready for action.
  • George Hewes meets with John Andrews and Robert Sessions at the wharf. They all have their skin darkened and they are either dressed like Indians or have feathers in their hair. The men are preparing to dump tea off the ship and into the Boston harbor. Hopefully, this will show the King not to tax them.
  • The three men are now on the ship, disguised as Indians and begin to throw the British's tea into the harbor. the water starts to become brown. From the tea or all the crates thrown in. The colonists didn't care, they just kept dumping more tea into the water, until 340 chests were lost into the depths of the harbor.
