I heard there are 3 ships at the harbor, How about we dump all the tea?
That's a great idea!
The people of Boston lived peacefully in the 1770's. Recently three boats arrived with in the city stocked with tea. Tea was a very popular item then. But the colonists are about to find out something they won't be happy about.
Due to the expenses paid during the French and Indian War, the British needed a way to make money. They East India Company was failing as well, so they proposed to the British to tax the colonists. Fair to say that the colonists above upset. This caused outrage among them and a certain group wanted to take action.
A certain group known as the Sons of Liberty decided to make a plan. This plan would be lead by Sam Adams. The plan was to dump tea into the ocean from the three boats arriving. They also planned to dress like Mohawk Indians to keep their identity's hidden.
