Episode Summary

EDIT
Teapot in a Tempest: The Boston Tea Party of 1773 (Part 2)
AIRED:
The Boston Tea Party lives on in history and memory in a variety of ways. The term "Boston Tea Party" doesn't appear for 50 years after the event. No one spoke openly about who had boarded the tea ships until the 1820s and 1830s. The Indian costumes are misunderstood, Americans' penchant for coffee has little to do with politics, and most of the images of the Tea Party are wrong. The Tea Party is both celebrated as a patriotic act and distrusted as destructive and violent. It has inspired speakers for and against slavery, women's suffragists, anti-immigration advocates, Gandhi, and Sun Yat-sen. Professor Benjamin Carp discusses how to best understand and remember the Boston Tea Party.moreless
