Boarding Time

Once the Sons of Liberty arrived at Griffin’s Wharf disguised in their Mohawk clothing, they boarded each ship and began their patriotic work. They were careful not to damage any of the other cargo aboard the ships while they were hoisting the East India Company tea. The crates were brought to the deck and cracked open with hatchets. They did this over and over again until all the tea was dumped into the water. “Boston Harbor! A teapot tonight!”

Come see the only remaining tea crate from that fateful night!
