On December 16, 1773 … members of the Sons of Liberty (American Colonists) gathered together and disguised themselves as Mohawk Indians. In protest against Britain’s Tea Act (high taxation of tea), they boarded 3 trade ships and threw 340 crates of tea into the Boston Harbor. The event came to be known as – The Boston Tea Party. In today’s money, the value of the tea they dumped would be more than $1,700,000 USD and, it would have brewed more than 18 million cups of tea! What does this have to with Match and Fable’s latest role? Not much really.
