Episode Summary

EDIT
Teapot in a Tempest: The Boston Tea Party of 1773 (Part 1)
AIRED:
The Boston Tea Party was about more than taxes, and it was part of a movement that was larger than Boston. Professor Benjamin Carp, author of a the forthcoming book on the Boston Tea Party, discusses the different factors that led to American outrage in 1773, the people who became politically active in protesting the Tea Act, and the motivations that led to the destruction of the tea in Boston harbor. Carp examines the global forces of trade and empire that helped lead to the Boston Tea Party, and notes what was particular about Boston that led to such an event happening there.moreless
