Four ships bearing East India Company Tea were sent to Boston in 1773. Three of them arrived in Boston Harbor, sending the town into a frenzy. Join the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum Creative Team as they lead a virtual discussion focused on the important role these ships played in the events that would ultimately lead to a revolution. This 1-hour presentation will explore the types of vessels involved in the Boston Tea Party, the construction methods used to recreate them for the museum, and share anecdotes and information about the ship owners and crews that sailed them.
Please note: All Tea Talk presentations begin promptly at the listed times. All presentation times take place in Eastern time zone.
