Bright Lights: The Real Boston Tea Party

December 16th is the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party

This Day in history: the Boston Tea Party

The midnight raid, popularly known as the “Boston Tea Party,” was in protest of the British Parliament’s Tea Act of 1773, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company by greatly lowering its tea tax and granting it a virtual monopoly on the American tea trade.

The name has been hijacked.

Being a Boston Girl #BostonStrong even in Florida we love our Boston History.

These people, if they were alive today would not allow the shenanigans that are going on.

They would not want to scare us. They would embolden us.

For instance, we would have more choices for our cable.

Why do you think?
