The Sons of Liberty & The Boston Tea Party
by Linda Moss Mines
Two hundred and fifty years ago, the Sons of Liberty, in the first major act of defiance against the British Empire, stole onto Griffin's Wharf in Boston and dumped 342 chests of tea into the harbor - - moving the colonies into a new phase of protest against "taxation against representation." During this exciting recounting of that evening and the subsequent reactions at home and abroad, we'll chart the course that led these somewhat ununited colonies into a unity that would issue a Declaration of Independence three years later. This session is a perfect way to kick off your AMERICA 250 COUNTDOWN!

She is a frequent guest speaker across the South and appears regularly on tv and radio - - talking history.
