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.

Baker & Taylor
Explores the impact England's taxation had on the colonies, with emphasis on the Stamp and Tea tax, to explain why the tea parties happened, their importance, and their role in the Revolution.

Reading this showed me just how little I knew about the Boston Tea Party. It explained the events far better than my high school history class ever could.
