Boston Tea Party

What self-respecting tea Web site could let today pass without pointing out that it's the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party? Not this one.

For a brief overview of the events of and leading up to that December day in 1773 have a look at this Web page from the Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum. They actually have one of the tea chests that was dumped in Boston harbor on that day of infamy, though you'll have to wait until their renovations are complete to get a gander at it.

For Wikipedia's take on things, look here.

Finally, here's an eyewitness account from The History Place.
