Boston Tea Part, Part Deux


I am vindicated further....

I was reading an account of the Boston Tea Party in History Bites, by Judith Millidge and discovered the morning after the Tea Party, one of the "revelers", George Hewes (1742-1840, shoemaker, militiaman, privateer), reported that the boxes of tea dumped the previous evening were seen floating in the harbor and boats we dispatched to make sure that the tea sank in order to make it unusable.

Additionally, he fought with another 'patriot' to make sure that the other man did not steal some of the cheap british tea for his own personal use.
