The Boston Tea Party – in Boston, and also Needham!
December 10, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A talk by Gloria Greis.
December 10th at 2:00 pm.
at the Needham History Center, 1147 Central Avenue.
On the night of December 16, 1773, a group of thinly-disguised Sons of Liberty swarmed onto the ships in Boston harbor and threw the costly chests of tea overboard, in protest to the new British tea tax. The Crown responded with a series of new laws, reviled in the Colonies as the “Intolerable Acts,” that soon touched off the Revolution. Join us for this talk in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, and learn how the events that started in Boston had far-reaching consequences – even reaching as far as the sleepy village of Needham.
This event is free to all, and refreshments will be served. More information HERE.
