  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!!
  •  On March 5th 1770, a street brawl happened between the American Colonists and British Soldiers in Boston, Masachussetts. They were filled with rage because of all the British Soldiers roaming their streets. This is another reason why the American Colonists were angry with the British, not only did they "roam the streets" but they also made them pay tax on tea.
  • These are some of the sons of liberty dressed up as native Americans and they smuggled 342 chests of tea onto the ships docked at Griffins Wharf.
