Boston Tea Party

Boston Tea Party: Colonists dressed up as Native Americans decided to dump the tea from Britain into the Boston Harbor as an act of rebellion against the the British rulers.The colonists were really mad because ot the abusive taxes imposed upon the colonies.This historical event is popularly known as the Boston Tea Party.

This happened on December 16, 1776 .John Hancock, Paul Revere and John Adams, who participated in this rebellion, have become classic heroic figures in American folklore and history.The East India Tea Company had docked the HMS Dartmouth in Boston harbor full of a fresh import of tea for the colonies. It was the best opportunity for the colonists to make a clear statement that this unethical and immoral use of taxes on tea was an act of war and they were willing to treat it as such.

It was from that time forward the independence of America was inevitable.

Great article about the amenities of Boston. I feel so deprived living in the south after reading your informative blog and viewing those gorgeous videos. We have no subways or open markets in our areas-and, of course, no Harvards or major museums so it's a treat to travel vicariously through a well written blog like yours.

I enjoyed the Charles River Esplanade video the best with the calming classical music playing in the background and the soothing views. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the fireworks which are quite magnificent. The subway system is also a convenient form of travel. I suspect not many Bostonians need cars. And you made me jealous what with eating that lobster!

One thing you did forget to touch on which is the cutest to me: the Bostonian accent. I love their elegant, posh accents and it's always a pleasure listening to it. Thanks for the blog; I hope to one day visit this cosmopolitan city.
