The Boston Tea Party

Today marks the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party in 1773, when a group of men from the Sons of Liberty, disguised as indians, threw an entire shipment of tea into Boston Harbor in protest of the Tea Act, a tax levied on the colonies by the British Parliament. The Boston Tea Party was one of several actions which eventually led to the American Revolution and our independence.

In honor of those colonists who had the courage to act, we raise the Sons Of Liberty banner with the American Flag.
