The Boston Tea Party

EPISODE 01: At the direction of Benjamin Franklin, Moses, James and Henri travel to Boston in search of Sarah, who has arrived from England on a tea-laden ship. When they get to the Harbor, they happen upon the disguised colonists and discover they are raiding the very ship Sarah is on.


HISTORICAL CONTENT: Colonists in Boston rebel against "taxation without representation" by throwing a fortune in tea into the harbor, while disguised as Mohawk Indians. There are no fatalities or serious injuries but a mighty blow is delivered that reaches all the way to England. (12/16/73)

EMOTIONAL TAKEAWAY: Freedom is something that may have to be fought for yet on each side of a battle the people fighting have reasons to believe they are in the right.
