Tempest in a Tea Pot: The Boston Tea Party

November 12, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

Join the Mercer County Library on Tuesday, December 12, at 6:30 pm for a talk to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. That pivotal event, taking place at Griffin’s Wharf in Boston, was a response to the 1773 Tea Act, the latest of a series of parliamentary directives stretching back to the 1765 Stamp Act. But the Tea Act was never intended to be so provocative. University of Maryland historian Richard Bell explores the 1773 Boston Tea Party from both local and global perspectives. He argues that the Tea Party marks the first major protest in America against corporate greed and the effects of globalization. Sponsored by the Friends of the West Windsor Library.
