I keep hearing this same thing and I am not certain where this justification is coming from-middle school? . I have been teaching U.S. History at the High School level for over 20 years and can tell you that I have never taught this specific event as a positive event. A significant event yes, but a positive event no. I think the same would be said for my fellow co-workers as well as teachers that I know at other schools in the area.Yet we praise those involved in pillaging and plundering when the boarded ships during the Boston Tea Party. They even teach it in schools as a great, positive event in the history of the development of America.
