J. L. Bell at Boston 1775 has been busy writing about the Boston Tea Party and an event that is worth attending. The annual reenactment of the Boston Tea Party will be held Sunday, 10 December at the Old South Meeting House beginning at 5:30 P.M.
From the Old South website:
Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party Reenactment: Boston Tea Party as "protesters" rally against the tea tax at the Old South Meeting House, which hosted the original gathering in December 1773. $5; Free for those dressed in colonial attire!
I participated in this event many years ago and had a great deal of fun. For that authentic colonial experience, I recommend ingesting rum to help warm you as you make your way through the streets of Boston. Since the location of the original tea party is now along Atlantic Avenue somewhere (and is a matter of some debate) I suggest dumping the tea in the lobby of the new InterContinental Boston Hotel, which is probably close to the original site. If you get caught, don't tell them I sent you.
