The 16th of December is the 223d anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. This year's reenactment of that fabled event won't occur on that Saturday, but on this upcoming Sunday, 10 December. It starts at 5:30 P.M. at Old South Meeting-House on Washington Street in downtown Boston, and is expected to last till about 7:00.
The Old South website announces:
Come and participate in this spirited re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party as "protesters" rally against the tea tax at the Old South Meeting House, which hosted the original gathering in December 1773.In past years, the reenactment of the tea meeting has been followed by a march to the Boston Tea Party Ship, but that's undergoing renovation until 2008.
$5; Free for those dressed in colonial attire!
Since Boston 1775 doesn't offer much information about the Tea Party yet, the coming days will focus on that event. Now I must go find postable material!
