The Sons of Liberty disguised themselves as Native Americans on the night of the Boston Tea Party for all these reasons EXCEPT:
||They knew that Native Americans would never be accused or suffer any penalties for the destruction of the tea.
||They did not want to be prosecuted for the crime of destroying property that was not theirs.
||They wanted their friends and families to be able to say truthfully that they did not recognize them that night.
||They knew that dressing up in costumes would add to the excitement and enthusiasm of the undertaking.
||They hoped that Native Americans would be blamed for the storming of the Dartmouth.
