After they looked around making sure there was no tea on the land. I could smell the tea floating in Boston Harbor. I went over and asked a man "why did they throw tea from the ships? Why are they dressed up in paint under there eyes and wearing feathers in there hair?" He responded "that is Sam Adams and his Patriots throwing the tea. They did it because King George III said they had to buy their tea from the British East India Company and they did not want to!" "What is the British East India Company?" I asked. "It is a company that sells tea," the man replied. "Sam Adams and the other men smashed open 342 chests of their tea."
