"A soldier sent to the hospital from the barracks in King Street. Mrs. Barrett had orders to bury him in the night."

"The names of those who destroyed the tea during the Boston Tea Party were veiled in secrecy for years afterwards. Participants in the destruction of the tea swore themselves to secrecy and did not acknowledge each other even when boarding the ships, breaking open the chests and dumping the tea.

Had their names become known to British authorities, they would have been arrested and punished. Even years later, some retained secrecy for fear of lawsuits possibly being brought by the British East India Company.

Some of the participants' families had become well to do and were not proud of identifying with this act of "civil disobedience," although today it is seen as one of the most significant acts leading to the American colonies' break with Great Britain."
