America's tea parties : not one but four! : Boston, Charleston, New York, Philadelphia by Marissa Moss( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone knows about the Boston Tea Party, but few know about the three other tea parties that happened at about the same time. Philadelphia, New York, and Charleston also had to deal with ships from England's East India Company that were coming to blanket the colonies with large amounts of tea - tea that had a very high tax attached. America's Tea Parties tells the story of all four American ports and how the people dealt with the "tea problem." The book provides background on England's taxation of the colonies - with emphasis on the Stamp and Tea taxes - and explains why it was crucial that the tea parties occurred and how the people of each port worked together to form a united front. The colonists' cooperation and willingness to fight took the colonies a crucial step closer to igniting the American Revolution. Award-winning author Marissa Moss deftly interweaves accounts of the individual tea parties and the local people and events with the larger social and political issues of the times. -- from dust jacket
