Storyboard Text

  • The Meeting: George Hewes
  • John Andrews
  • Robert Sessions
  • "The tea destroyed was contained in three ships, and surrounded by armed ships of war. The commanders had declared that if the rebels should not withdraw their opposition to the landing of the tea. The British would force the tea on shore under cover."
  • Such prodigious shouts were made, that induced me, while i was drinking tea at home. The house was so crowded I could get no farther than the porch. The moderator was just declaring the meeting to be dissolved, which caused another general shout, outdoors and in and three cheers.
  • I was living in Boston at the time, in the family of a Mr.Davis, a lumber merchant. On that eventful evening, when Mr. Davis came in from the town meeting, I asked him what was to be done with the tea. "They are throwing it overboard," he replied.
