Program Description

Event Details

The story of tea has always been infused with intrigue, particularly when it became a flash point for tensions between England and Colonial America.  Learn about the history of tea's political issues with Anglophile and former UK resident Claire Evans. Next, author, genealogist, librarian, and former UK resident Debra Dudek examines the history of the Boston Tea Party’s most famous partiers (and phonies), as well as how to trace bona fide participants through lineage societies and historical groups.
