  • We Need A Plan
  • Something needs to be done about the taxes.
  • This should go interestingly.
  • A British Soldier checks the ship as it enters the dock.
  • New Shipment
  • Oh no! The smugged tea!
  • Making The Next Move
  • Just kill 'em all!
  • I think we dump all of the tea into the harbor. It's just sitting there anyway!
  • Well if no one will get hurt...
  • I don't know that this is the way to protest.
  • The colonists refused to unload the tea and threatened officials to keep it there.
  • The Sons of Liberty meet to discuss the issue that is the taxes from the British Parliment without representation from the colonies. But some are still skeptical. Who are the Sons of Liberty and what are their intentions?
  • The Tea That Didn't Move
  • A new shipment of taxed and smuggled tea comes into the Boston Harbor. A British Soldier comes to check and make sure it is all legal. Why would they need to smuggle tea if the price of regular taxed tea is lower?

They decided that they would sneak onto 3 different ships (Dartmouth, Eleanor, Beaver) and dump all 342 tea crates overboard. The tea they dumped was worth up to $18,000.
