Johnny Tremain

Chapter 7 Question- Johnny Tremain

My question is: 

Why was the discovery of Dove stealing tea so important? What do you think the "high moral tone" meant? Was it moral to DINO the tea? Why or why not

As the men begin to dump tea into the harbor, Johnny notices that Dove has volunteered to join the group. He is scooping tea into his pockets instead of throwing it into the sea. Johnny worries that this will ruin the event and make the rebels look bad, so he and Rab throw Dove overboard. Although the Tea Party is successful, Johnny and the other men know that the British will eventually retaliate.
