Based on the 1846 Lithograph by Nathaniel Currier, me and Bella buit our own 3d rendition of the event. The “Boston Tea Party” (as it was later called) happened on December 16, 1773 and happened in response to taxation without representation (not as a response to taxation with representation). And yes, there were British soldiers watching from a building and a nearby boat. (Like the lithograph, we have most of the colonists on the boat dressed as native Americans, when in reality only a few were dressed that way.) You may also find a couple of moments where we took artistic license for humor’s sake. But overall we tried to stay true. While not in the lithograph, we did represent the British soldiers that were watching from a nearby building and from another boat in the harbor.
