Publisher Summary
Recounts the colonists' stand to control their own destinies, detailing the protest meetings at Old South Church, the defiant act of dumping the tea into the harbor, and the reaction from the British.

More than any other single event, the Boston Tea Party of 1773 has come to stand for the determination of American colonists to control their own destinies. From the arrival of ships full of controversial taxed tea in Boston Harbor through the explosive protest meetings at Old South Church to the defiant act of dumping hundreds of chests of fine tea into the harbor on December 16, Freedman captures this exciting story in vivid prose. In lush, intricately detailed watercolor paintings, Peter Malone artfully depicts the colonial era and the charged atmostphere of Boston during these pivotal developments that ushered in the American Revolution.
