The Boston Tea Party — 250 Years Later (Virtual)

December 16, 2023@2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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 will be held over Zoom; register to receive the meeting link. 

This program is offered by the Bacon Free Library in collaboration with the Tewksbury Public Library.
