Storyboard Text

  • We have all this tea but we still don't have enough money. We have to find a way for the colonies to buy our tea. Why don't we remove the taxes and lower the prices ?
  • Good Idea!
  • Yes I did. I'm so scared what are we going to do now ? I think they are trying to take control of us.
  • Bob did you hear the East India Tea Company lowered their price rate on the tea?
  • I come to bring you guys news. They have lowered the prices on the tea and this cut us out of the tea trade. Were not going to let them take control so we have to make a plan to stop them.
  • Good idea
  • Why don't we throw their tea away?
  • Lord Fredrick North, British prime minister, faced a problem. The British East company was nearly bankrupt. North granted the company the right to sell to the colonies free of taxes that the colonial tea sellers still had to pay.
  • We are planning to sell it for a reduced price?
  • Look at all this tea what are you guys planning on doing with it?
  • Regular price without taxes.
  • How much? What about us? We won't be able to make money if we have to sell it for prices with taxes.
  • This action would cut colonial merchants out of the tea trade because the East India company could sell its tea directly to consumers for less.
  • Ok here's the plan we throw all the tea over in the sea
  • Yea, yea, yea good idea man!
  • The North hoped the Americans colonies would simply buy the cheaper tea; instead, they protested violently.
  • A large Group of boston rebels disguised themselves as Native Americans and proceeded to take action against three British tea ships anchored in the harbor.

  • Not all colonists agreed with the plan. “The cause of Boston…ever will be considered as the cause of America,” George Washington strongly voiced his disapproval of “destroying the Tea.”
  • On the night of December 16, 1773, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty boarded three ships in the Boston harbor and threw 342 chests of tea overboard.
