On This Date in History...

The ORIGINAL Tea Party!

Boston Tea Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is interesting to note that smuggled tea cost more than tea imported legally, with duties paid on it, yet the colonists were willing to pay the higher price.

It is also interesting to note that the Wikipedia article cited above does  not actually make any reference to the modern Tea Party Movement...
