The Guests at the Boston Tea Party!

The exact number of those Patriots who participated in the Boston Tea Party is unknown. Why? Because many participants of the Boston Tea Party remained anonymous and lived discreetly for years out of fear of punishment. Currently, 116 men are known for sure to have thrown tea overboard the Eleanor, the Dartmouth, and the Beaver because they were documented. But many members have been lost in history. Many of the men were under the age of forty and the classes of men covered a wide variety of social status. However, we do know that thousands witnesses this momentous event in American history and were able to convey it to future generations!
