Huzzah! Travel back in time to December 16, 1773, the night of the Boston Tea Party. Join me on a journey as thousands of colonists line Boston Harbor to witness chests of tea dumped into the chilly water. I participated in a captivating Boston Tea Party reenactment on the 242nd anniversary of the iconic turning point in our nation’s history.
History aficionados gathered at the Old South Meeting House, where colonists congregated hundreds of years ago to protest King George’s taxation. Figures such as Paul Revere and Samuel Adams debated the oppressive Tea Act of 1773, designed to support the East India Company. Colonists could stand the British crown no longer when they proceeded to Griffin’s Wharf in Boston to express their contempt. More than 300 chests of tea were thrown overboard.
