  • The Start
  • Okay, but I don't think the people will be happy.
  • A new law has been passed by the king to tax tea.
  • The Meeting
  • These taxes are outrageous. We need to try and stop them.
  • The Meeting
  • The plan is to dress up like natives and then boar the ship and throw the teaoverboard.
  • YEA!
  • A man came into town and told all of the storekeeper about a new law. The new law stated that they were now taxing tea and other everyday objects. Once the word started spreading around the people were outraged and set up  meetings to try and boycott the new taxes.
  • Thousands of people from Boston and towns across Massachusetts gathered at the Old South Meeting on December 14, 1773. Samuel Phillips Savage of Weston, Massachusetts, was chosen as the moderator of the meeting. As with the November 29 to 30 meeting, the consensus was to find a way to prevent the British East India Company Tea from being unloaded.
  • The meeting came to a conclusion when Samuel Adams resolved, “Whether it is the firm resolution of this body that the tea shall not only be sent back but that no duty shall be paid thereon!” The crowdcheered with affirming nods, pounding fists, tapping canes, and cheers to support his motion not to pay the tax on the shipment of British East India Company tea.
