The Boston Tea Party Patriots

So when we had heard about the taxation on tea i was outraged I was most mad about the fact that we didn't get a say in it. So on the night of December 16, 1773 me being one of the few that was not imprisoned. We were sneaking on one of the ships called the Dartmouth and some other loyal patriots got on the other 2 ships. I was not alone of course. By the time the redcoats found out we dumped 342 crates into the Boston harbor I managed to escape but my fellow patriots couldn't. This taxation was a horrible idea.I think they are just greedy. So please if you are a true fellow patriot help us stop this madness.

Boston Tea Party Loyalists

DARN PATRIOTS!!!! Throwing 342 of our crates of tea into the Boston harbor. Who do they think they are. I wish we could have stopped them sooner but we were able to capture all of them except one. They did it on the night of December 16, 1773. So much labor and hours of picking the herbs to make the tea wasted gone. They even went so far as to dress up as Indians and try and trick us but they were wrong. So please help the loyalists to tax the tea.
