Professor Robert Allison joins the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for a discussion on the impact of the Boston Tea Party on America’s road to Revolution. As the cursed East India Company tea arrives in Boston Harbor between November 28th and December 15th 1773, the town of Boston becomes gripped with the drama of this boiling “tea crisis”. Intrigue developes between the Sons of Liberty and the tea Consignees while tensions rise at the Meetings of the Body of the People at Faneuil Hall and Old South Meeting House as demands and petitons are made to send the tea back to England. With the expiration of a 20-day deadline to land the tea looming, the Sons of Liberty march to Griffin’s Wharf and into history.
