240th Anniversary of
the Boston Tea Party
Monday—Dec. 16—represents the 240th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. You can celebrate by joining a reenactment, including a procession from the Old South Meeting House to the Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum. You can also monitor the event on Twitter by following #BTPReenactment, which was totally how colonial patriots organized the original Tea Party. A bit of history: The Tea Party occurred when colonists protested the Crown's attempt to replace stocks Earl Grey with English Breakfast. No! They're not the same!
