Join us on the date of the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party for this Zoom webinar.
The story of tea has always been infused with intrigue, particularly when it became a flash point for tensions between England and Colonial America. On the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party (December 16, 1773), learn about the brewing political problems tea presented in its history with Anglophile and former UK resident Claire Evans. Then, author, genealogist, librarian, and former UK resident Debra Dudek examines the history of the Boston Tea Party’s most famous partiers (and phonies), as well as how to trace bona fide participants through lineage societies and historical groups.
This program is in partnership with Tewksbury Public Library and other MA libraries and is funded in part by the Friends of Memorial Hall Library.
