December 16, 2013 “The Boston Tea Party – the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution”

December 16, 2013
The Boston Tea Party comes alive this December! It’s December 16th, 1773 and trouble is brewing in Boston. Presented by Boston’s famed Old South Meeting House and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, the 240th Anniversary Boston Tea Party Annual Reenactment is an opportunity for the public to join-in on one of Boston’s most iconic public protests. Re-enactors from across New England tell the story of the Boston Tea Party and dramatize the evening of December 16, 1773 which sparked the American Revolution. The evening will consist of three parts, as it did 240 years ago, starting at the Old South Meeting House, followed by a procession to Boston Harbor and ending with a reenactment of the destruction of the tea into Boston Harbor.
