Audible Editor Reviews

When Parliament passed the Tea Act, American colonists were furious, believing it to violate their rights against taxation without representation. As three tea ships from Britain rested in Boston Harbor, the Sons of Liberty invaded, throwing the tea supply overboard. It remains an iconic moment of nonviolent protest that helped to trigger the American Revolution. This iMinds production is a comprehensive account of the important facts of the Boston Tea Party, and Elouise Rothwell delivers a compelling performance that imbues this historic event with an appropriate sense of intrigue and significance.

Publisher's Summary

Learn about the Boston Tea Party with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.It was another cold night in Boston, Massachusetts on the 16th of December 1773. But this was no ordinary night. This night would ignite the flames of injustice within many an American colonist. And it would eventually lead to the American Revolution.

That night, three British ships - the Dartmouth, the Eleanor, and the Beaver - were moored in the Boston harbor. Their holds were filled with British tea that the American colonists had refused to accept. However, Thomas Hutchinson, the royal governor of Massachusetts, in turn, refused to issue the permits which would allow the ships to leave the harbor and return to Great Britain. Already, in Pennsylvania and New York City, public outcry had resulted in ships in harbor there returning to Great Britain without unloading their cargo of tea. But in Boston, Governor Hutchinson was standing strong against the colonists.
