Tea Talks presents: The Boston Tea Party with Professor Robert Allison

October 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Professor Robert Allison joins the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for a discussion on the impact of the Boston Tea Party on America’s road to Revolution.  As the cursed East India Company tea arrived in Boston Harbor between November 28th and December 15th 1773, the town of Boston became gripped with the drama of this boiling “tea crisis”.  Intrigue developes between the Sons of Liberty and the tea Consignees while tensions rise at the Meetings of the Body of the People at Faneuil Hall and Old South Meeting House as demands and petitons are made to send the tea back to England. With the expiration of a 20-day deadline to land the tea looming, the Sons of Liberty march to Griffin’s Wharf and into history.

This presentation will take place on Thursday October 5th, 2023 at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum (located at 306 Congress Street, Boston, MA).

Doors Open: 6:30pm

Presentation Begins: 7:00pm

Registration Required
