Tea Party Traditions

MHS research fellow and frequent researcher Ben Carp (Associate Professor of History at Tufts University) recently made a guest appearance on the podcast "Backstory with the American History Guys," to talk about historical "tea parties" in the context of the current political movement. Ben is the author of The Defiance of the Patriots: The Boston Tea Party and the Making of America (to be released this fall).

You can listen to the podcast, plus watch other related events and get some suggestions for further readings, all here.
