Memo to Tea Party Supporters

The original Boston Tea Party and follow-on dumping of tea in other colonies reflected anger at increasingly dictatorial British rule. I think it is important to be well informed about the Tea Party and related events leading up to the American Revolution.

To that end I recommend you buy a copy of my book, Taxation in Colonial America. The front cover is a contemporary depiction of the Boston Tea Party. Reading my book will help you fend off critics who say the American Revolution was not about higher taxes and bigger government.

Allons enfants de la Patrie!
