In an evening, a group of men, disguised themselves as Native American warriors, stealthily boarded the British East India Company tea ship. They were ordered to search for all the tea on the ship, with the due care not to damage anything else. Speedily, they gathered one chest of tea after another, and a total of 342 chests was found. Not being interested to appropriate them, they threw them all overboard. The British armed ships promptly surrounded them. The deeds of these men, known as ‘Boston Tea Party’, draw the curtain for the American War of Independence.
