about this item

Everyone has heard of the Boston Tea Party, but few know about the other tea parties that took place at the same time. Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, and Charleston all had to deal with the ships from England’s East India Company coming to deliver tea to the colonies—tea that had a very high tax attached. America’s Tea Partiesprovides background on England’s taxation of the colonies, with emphasis on the Stamp and Tea taxes, the larger social and political issues the colonies were having with England, why it was crucial that these tea parties happened, and the revolution these demonstrations led to. The book is illustrated with archival images and includes an author’s note, endnotes, time line, bibliography, and index.
