The Boston Tea Party is one of the most recognizable moments in American history, yet it is also one of the most misunderstood. While many artistic depictions of the Destruction of the Tea exist, they often show an inaccurate and highly romanticized version of the event, and none tell the full story.
Were there 342 chests of tea destroyed or 340? Were there three ships involved or four? Were the Sons of Liberty disguised? If so, what did they actually wear? These are just a few of the questions we'll answer and myths we'll dispel during this hour-long discussion.
Please note: All Tea Talks presentations begin promptly at the listed times. All presentation times are in Eastern Time Zone.
