On Dec. 16, 1773, a group called the Sons of Liberty set ablaze a shipment of the East India Company’s tea in Boston Harbor and threw chests of the tea into the harbor as part of growing resistance to what was seen as unfair taxation. A seminal event leading to the American Revolution, it was later known as the Boston Tea Party.*
On Dec. 16, 2006, others with a mission staged the Boston 9/11 Truth Tea Party** by throwing boxes representing cases of the 9/11 Commission Report*** into the same harbor in an effort to expose the many falsehoods of that report published two years earlier.
