Winter Lecture Series: Revolutionary Acts: Tea, Taxes and Tempests
January 22, 2017 - March 26, 2017 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In 1763, Massachusetts Bay celebrated the birthday of King George III with banquets and toasts, parades and fireworks. Ten years later, Massachusetts teetered on the brink of open rebellion as colonists denounced the British Parliament’s new taxes on imported goods. Join us as we commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Townshend Acts in a winter lecture series exploring the politics of tea, consumer culture, and resistance on the eve of the American Revolution.
All lectures begin at 2 p.m. at the Deerfield Community Center and are free and open to the public.
